still today a very good album! Not very up2date of course, but as much of roughness and deepness. That Work definately showed an alternative Tekno route and influenced a whole Colony of Acid, Hardcore, IDM Generation. This is more straight than the breakcore Releases he later came up with, but neither the less exciting.
I like that kinda style even more than that simplistic breakcore stuff he did later on, which other artists were much more accomplished in.

One of the most comprehensively devastating Electronic lps from the early 90s. Tracks like "Lash the nineties" and "Blutrote Nacht Über Berlin" just slay the audio spectrum, with jumped up distorted kicks and analogue synths sceping out and over, you are consumed by the sound. It is very much a box of chocolates in style, never sitting comfortably in one vein, although alot of tracks share a similar sound aesthetic in mood,cuts from breakbeat space symphonies to more abstract atmospheres and even vocal sampled radio and acid. Rates as one of Alec Empire's finest outings on Mille Plateuax and shines far above alot of concurrent and future artists material also.
