Dear valued customer, I hope you will be happy to know that all proceedings of sales of my items will be spent on musical software. Thus by buying from me, you will indirectly fund developers of audio production software.

Money I have received so far have for instance been used to buy software from independent developers like CL-Projects, Synth Magic, BigTick and Homegrown Sounds, too mention just a few.

My main interests lie in new wave/synthpop and ambient-techno, but I listen to all sorts of electronic and progressive music. My favourite records of all time are something like this.

You need to listen to this album again, the hits are good, but there are even better songs than that on the album.

Read the lyrics of the album, this is not pretty-boy jockrock, the band actually try to put forward a message.

How far deep does the rabbit hole run? The Monster Exists message is also spotted in the backdrop when Orbital did the live MTV in house special back in 1994.

In the Norwegian language "Pule" is a very well known slang word for copulation, just a coincidence?

There are far too many interludes on this album, but when the brothers make it right like as with Alpha & Omega then it is their crowning moment.

The vocalist is ruining what would have been a pretty good record, going all over top all of the time overplaying, not the way to go, learn that less can be more.

I wouldn't say it is a big misrepresentation to call this latin jazz, it is a bossanova beat in the 80's. It would however be a HUGE misrepresentation to call this synth-pop, they are using real piano and bass. Where are the synths?

It provided the starting point of seminal bands The Chameleons and Pulp, an important snapshot of a point in time.

An essential album for fans of synth-rock of the early 80's (Ultravox, Numan et al), also for prog rock fans who like synthetics, it is expertly played and produced. Why it didn't do anything chartwise must be down to the label not being able to market ... See full review

This is an album that has flown under my radar, but what a pleasant surprise! Obviously if you are a fan of Gary Numan around the time of Telekon you need this album in your collection. Denis Haines played on that album and was in Numan's backing band ... See full review

It could have been a fantastic record, Foxx lyrics are as good as his later writing, but soundwise it looks a lot more to the past than to the future.

The name of the record implies a come together of techno lovers: "Der Klang Der Familie" (The Sound of the Family)

It is quite sad, and darkly ironic if it instead caused a rift between Detroit and Berlin :-(

A techno classic! It has one of the most recognizable techno synth riffs, simple it may be (F# E C), but it sounds otherwordly, futuristic, iconic! There was another classic of '92 Fabi Paras' remix of React II Rhythm's "I Know You'll Like It" that it ... See full review

Not a bad deal, whoever bought this issue of NME, got more or less the full single version of "Leave Home", that would be released six months later and enter the UK top 20 single chart.

"Scenes From A Fractal Blotter Mix" is a total classic. There is no cheese here, the bass and drums will flatten every dancefloor even to this day.

As I hear the original "Are We Here?" it is divided into three section: Intro, Mid (ca 3-8 min), and End (ca 8 min to end).

The mid section is heralded by the vocal sample "Warning, warning, nuclear attack" and it features a great stabby rave like bass ... See full review

"Shadow Boxing" is like the evil twin of Doc Scott's "The Unofficial Ghost", these songs both of 1996, have quite similar arrangements, and made by the same man.

Except the Columbia demo (released December 1993), this must be among the first releases containing Oasis (2) on recorded media. Their first single "Supersonic" was released two months later in April 1994.

There was no such thing as EDM in the 90's. That is an american revisionist "invention"

It is called progressive house !
