A very underrated album and one of the best IDM records ever if you ask me. Jan Jelinek here achieves incredible results in giving electronic music a feeling of organic, natural growth and an ever-evolving sense of flow. This is so far the only record on the more "pleasant" side of IDM/glitch that I do like completely, while others seem much too lush or just a bad copy of something that has been done before, with the edge of. This record, in my opinion, is superior not only to other works of Jan Jelinek, but to most of the electronic music that came out at that time too. Its level of subtle composition and attention to detail only matches Autechre, even though they took electronic music in completely different directions and moods.

JAN JELINEK aka GRAMM from Berlin is known for his two highly sought after EP-releases as FARBEN on Klang (Frankfurt). Personal Rock is JAN's album-debut. Right from the start it creates an incredibly deep and warm atmosphere.
This is contemporary electronic music on the leap into thenext millenium. Technical, skillful and at the same time organic and seamless. Crackles, digital noises, cool harmonies and sublime shuffling grooves, ever shifting and floating . Minimal, experimental, streaming a tranquility that grows with every listen. The perfect ambience for some easy living, adding comfort and colour to the change of season.
