How so? It skips? Does it affect the playback severely?

The vocals sound a lot like Gianfranco Randone. Can anyone confirm my suspicion?

Beware when buying the rising high cd release of this album. Its made by PDO and its very very prone to suffer from the typical bronzing issue. I have two copies that are seriously affected. Shame, because this one has the best artwork.

"Autechre's weapons of choice are analog synthesizers"??? Really? As far as I know they were masters at the digital world. They used mostly digital based synths like the Casio RZ1 drum machine, the Ensoniq, Nord Lead, Korg Prophecy, Yamaha DX100...they ... See full review

This album was also released under the alias "Chorus of Tribes" as Myth. There is a fairly gigantic amount of youtube videos and download seeds crediting this music as being from Deep Forest & Enigma. Its a decent new age album for those into that genre.

Forgotten in this compilation are some of TLS's best remixes. Why releasing a remix compilation without their best, most amazing remixes? Beth Orton's "Anywhere", Sneaker Pimps's "6 Underground", Leftfield's "Swords", Electronic's "Prodigal Son" are all ... See full review

Very lame repress. Half the artwork is missing, and the cover looks like it was exposed to the sun for ages. Such gorgeous release deserved much better....

Electronic music really needed this album and the parent EP XTEP. They sound fresh and old at the same time. The melodies develop smoothly, the drum patterns are filled with tiny details, and the simplicity and complexity of this music go throught your ... See full review

Not many truly creative artists emerged after the great golden 90's ended.
Com Truise makes us wonder...is true creativity hidden within the past clichés? And is the way to turn them into fresh ideas again the hidden key? Well, judging by this, and his ... See full review
posted a comment on RAC - Diversions. over 5 years ago
I wonder why this album is so averagely rated, and so rarely mentioned when it comes to list 90's techno classics. "Diversions" is one of the most exciting techno albums ever released. Each song flows and develops somewhere, rather than just being a drum ... See full review

Ive always had the feeling that Finitribe never had the respect and acknowledgement they deserved. After a somewhat ignored Industrial album, an inovative house-like "...10k" and partially successful "an unexpected groovy treat", 1995 seen the birth of ... See full review

Lenz is Westbam, a very well known german producer. Klaus is his "partner in crime" for quite a few years. Search Westbam and you will find tons of nice works. This song is pretty dizzy induncing...and I mean it in the best way possible :).

Its incredible how this album got lost in the threshold of the bargain bins. This is an incredible piece of techno. Please dont compare it to Jeff, Laurent, they are all very talented producers as well, and equally brilliant...

The thing about "Pop for Dwoozle" is that it doesnt have any "wannabes" about becoming a classic or being a classic ambient revival. It just tells a different story in each song, through pure music. But not one of those "oh, I know how this ends" ... See full review

What an incredible album. This is probably the most experimental release from Mike. Just when everyone thought that he was going all the way into pop after "Earth Moving", here comes "Amarok", a 60 minute tour-de-force that goes all the way through Irish ... See full review

If you want to make a jumpstart on the early days of techno music, and the genious work of Juan Atkins, this is probably the most complete compilation out there. It goes all the way back to the early Cybotron days, and includes all the way throught the ... See full review

Everybody knows "cafe del mar", the incredible trance classic that is being remixed over and over again, almost every year, after all these years. The gigantic success of it threw the rest of Paul's productions into the threshold of oblivion. This album ... See full review

We have to choose the words wisely to review this album. After the mastodontic classic "4th sign", it was very hard to achieve the same brilliance and solid structure that his previous works had. So, can this album be considered as a classic as well? ... See full review

This is where minimal techno reaches absolute perfection. Its the first lesson in the "what minimal techno should be". Intense mental sounds travelling from one side to another. There are so many genres emprisioned in these brilliantly focused ... See full review

13 years later after its first release, its incredible how beautiful and strong this classic sounds. Gerald Simpson is a creative genious. He was wise enough to left 808 State, and develop his own genious at his own way, and he was wise enough to travel ... See full review

This album usually scares the usual Carlos Peron listeners. Well, maybe because it sounds much tougher than anything else he's done. Just think Hardfloor, Phuture 303, Spicelab (in the early years), Ultrahigh and some early Force Inc releases. Well, here ... See full review

Having in mind that a collection such as this has a little bit of a "best of" concept, I have to say that it does bother me a bit the fact that two of the most important remixes of all time, as far as D&B goes, aren't here.
How can the remix for "Peace ... See full review

The flow in this album is outstanding. Made with clear synth pads, aural vocal samples, some tribal flavours and a smooth ocasional trance beat, "Chameleon" is by far, the most consistent and beautiful album from this project. Luke Eastwood was smart ... See full review

The production and progamming is spotless. Everything is tight as Detroit electro can be.
But something on this is missing. I dont know if its just me, but the vocals, specially the female vocals seem unecessary. Some lyrics dont really help too.

When I first bought this album, the only thing I knew from Lazonby was Sacred Cycles. And it sounded a bit cheap. But, since the copies of this album are also cheap, ive decided to buy it. And It blew me.
Amazing techno/trance album.

This is one of the most underlooked albums of the 90's electronic music, that can be easily found on the bargain bins of cd stores, probably because, by the time it came out, it sounded too dated, and too "previously heard". However, we all know that ... See full review

Essential release for any Detroit Techno lover. This album is all about the hardness, the soul, the feeling and the mental violence of the UR posse.
