I was a fan only until the Excel lp which seemed to lose the rave/acid house edge of early releases.
Thankfully this lp feels like a return to the stuff I liked best. I had to check there was no Gerald on this lp it felt like it did.
A great pressing on vinyl. Love the packaging although the lp is a bit of a tight fit into the slipcase.
I'm guessing negative reviewers of this lp do like their later stuff. For me Cubik was a horrific noise of a track with no soul.

Beautifull package, Nice covers for a synthead there is lot's to see. Their best album in years, no pressure to make hits lead to this range of tracks... Playing non stop, it's good to have 808 State back. Vinyl sounds clean with good dynamics.

Not a bad slice of modern techno with classic 808 flair. Not the best album ever but holds up to 808's high standard

Looking back at more than 30 years of 808 State, I had not high expectations, but still some expectations to this album.
Having listened to the 2 EPs prior to it, those expectations dropped. In my humble opinion, their skills and previous discography taken in consideration, it is bland and uninspiring. It saddens me that, from all of this new material (the album and 2 EPs), the best track "Marconi" which has some reminiscence of the "Newbuild/Prebuild/Quadrastate" era, is only available as digital; no CD or Vinyl.
