I am in love with this album since 1995. I bought the double 12" at HARDWAX Berlin / Reichenberger Straße. This record was a unexpected surprise between all these harsh sounding aggressive techno from Sativae Rec. or Synewave Rec et.al. I love straight loop art techno but Dave Angel sounds special and positive. He is a special artist. Listened to his X-Mix 4 Journey so often - a pearl - like this album.

A flawless album from Dave Angel, his finest achievement in my opinion. You just can't fail to be moved by this music, my personal favourites are 'Timeless' (so so beautiful), 'Big Tight Flares' and 'Bump' (the 12" release of which I loved so much I just had to buy the album) but....in truth......all the tracks presented are great. If I'm feeling down, this is one album I can pretty much guarantee will have me smiling in next to no time :-) Thank you Dave!!!

I adore this LP. To me this album is a Techno masterpiece and contains some of the finest electronic music to never come out of Detroit. As a matter of fact I think it's better than most music I've heard from the Motor-City. "Arabian Nights", "Timeless" and "Scatman" all feature breathtaking melodies and deft, unrivalled production skills.

My favourite track though is "Bump" which is one of the most funky, joyful techno tunes I've heard. When I first heard this I was leaping around like a little lamb and it still makes me smile from ear to ear to this day. "Be-Bop" is also a sensational piece. The title says it all. It's digital Be-Bop Jazz, plain and simple. The finale "Rudiments" is also an incredible, deeply, moving track. Again the perfect marriage of the acoustic and technology - A jazzed out masterpiece.

I have owned this album since it's release and I still get great pleasure listening to it. Some of the warmest, emotionally affecting computer music ever made in my opinion. Dave Angel is the original Blunted Boy Wonder!!! Nice 1 Mate!

From the opening, Hal sampling, fusion-techno sounding Arabian Nights, to the Drum solo thrashing beautey of Rudiments this is a fine album that really take you on a journey. Sometimes that journey goes a bit wayword with some of the darker techno tracks but overall this is very well produced album oozing with soul that prooved that was one of the first to proove that techno producers can transcend the divide from single to album.
