    Play it at full volume whilst cruising in the car, it's like your somewhere else. Supreme album.

      Masterpiece of electro science.

        RE: below vinyl sounds absolutely lush, but of course you get more tracks on the CD, so should ideally have both!

          Without a doubt one of the best records of Drexciya. And one of the best techno albums of all time.

            Jazzy Fluids is the only track not available on vinyl, but well worth the by.. a funky steel drum-like xylophonic jazz groove with that drexciyan feel (the rest of the trks not on the 2x12 of nept's lair can be found on the tresor hydro doorways 12").

              It is hard to write a proper review of this album since it you actually need to hear it to fully understand the dimension of such an outstanding record. Drexciya is much more than just music: it is heart and it is life and it is fight and it is world.
              You'll be completely surrounded by a mysterious and deep aquatic environment from the start of the intro 'til the last track. Here you can find pearls like «Andreaen Sand Dunes», «Universal Element», «Polymono Plexusgel», «Devil Ray Cove», «Lost Vessel» or «Bottom Feeders» just to name a few. Some tracks are so amazingly simple while others are skilled masterpieces of sound engineering, contributing to one of the most pleasant experiences ever.
              Strong beats, soothing sounds, advanced technology... It's all here. It's perfect. It's Drexciya's «Neptune's Lair» : Scientific Research Development Lab.

                Neptune's Lair is excellent. Drexciya is/are so good because everything they do is of such a high standard. I can't actually think of any release that I have thought was poor which is pretty unique since even greats like Aphex have put out the odd weak release.

                The best track in my view on this record is 'Andreaen Sand Dunes'.

                Neptune's Lair was important as a record because it really expanded Drexciya's reportoire. Neptune's Lair rates as one of my favourite records of all time.
