Notes

This album is dedicated to Kim and my mom Norma G. (where ever you are)

The lost of a love

A broken heart can be
the food of your inspiration,
or is it just a way to
forget the love you have lost

Steve Rachmad is a master builder of soulful, trancey techno, and this album is a case in point. There are so many exquisite tracks here, but my favorite is "Satyricon", which really 'takes me somewhere'. I was disappointed to see that 100% Pure omitted that track from the 2012 remastered reissue. But above all, this LP should remind us of the sheer emotional potential of machine music.

Overrated album however, the title track "Secret Life Of Machines" is very beautiful melancholic techno. "Hydroxy" and "Sitting On Clouds" are my other two picks, not nearly as good as the title track, but better than most of the remaining track of the tracks which aren't that impressive. Based on one review here at Discogs, people apparently rave a lot about track 11 "Astronotes" Most of the track didn't get my attention, although it gets better at the end. "Secret Life Of Machines" is a MUST for any techno listener / collector. "Hydroxy" and "Sitting On Clouds" are enjoyable and respectably good. If only the title track was longer (It is unfortunately somewhat short) and managed to take advantage of the longer duration without adding any irrelevant dragging. 6/5 for me ;)

So many great tracks. Very zeitgeist. 'Hydroxy' at -8.
