Kombination true is a fast paced wicked electro track that should make fans to buy this release. Otherwise surprisingly the albums sounds half done with the rest of the tracks. Why?

Electro in a very complete sense, all the tracks have great futuristic vibes. 'World Tonight" has touches of italo and general 80's synth disco, but way more robotic. "Visualize" winks at Bobby O and Patrick Cowley, but the surge is hyper future robotic once again, almost as if Bobby and Patrick Cowley have been captured and turned into cyborgs in a MILAB experiment gone rouge. "Future Cities" is straight up classic west coast style electro with some revamping touches, have to say the other tracks are all also great, with various influences from Detroit tech to German technopop. Note- to get "World Tonight" and other tracks you would have to get the Gigolo vinyl of this, as tracks are different on the Kombinant Research release, I got both and keep them together as one.

I disagree with scoundrel's comment. This is solid electro.

The Advent have always been known for the pure techno ethos -- and with a title like TIME TRAP TECHNIK, it seems their reputation continues unabated. "Visualize" thrums with nice energy and its little musical glitches keep things interesting. "Signum" has a similar feel, though slightly more wiggly, and with its own surprising moments, and "Wasper" has a deep buzz to it that hints at some menace, as do the low gong tones on "Stassis." The stark breaks and light synth passes on "E-Tox" give that track some pop, but as good as the tracks are, something's missing here -- it almost feels like Mr. Ferreira is coasting. He's not pushing the envelope as much as he used to. And while not every album needs to forge completely new territory, I was hoping for a bit more.
