Detroit Techno (Octave One, Rhythim Is Rhythim, Eddie Flashin Fowlkes, Cybersonik, UR, etc.), Bleeps (Rhythmatic, LFO, N-Joi, Tricky Disco etc.), Acid House (A Guy Called Gerald, Baby Ford, Adrenalin MOD), Industrial (Skinny Pupppy, Front 242, Front Line Assembly, etc.), Circa 1990 Manchester sound (Charlatans UK, Happy Mondays, Stone Roses, The Farm, etc.) and mid to late 80's alternative (The Smiths, The Cure, The Cult, Gene Loves Jezebel, New Order, The Jesus & Mary Chain, etc.) Loving electronic music since the day I saw Computer World sitting on a shelf at the "Repeat The Beat" used record store in Dearborn, MI. I had to have it.

A masterpiece. A perfect fusion of acid house, techno and house, with each track unique and memorable in its own way. This release was almost impossible to find, especially on CD, and especially here in the states. I was able to obtain it, and it has ... See full review
posted a review of Random Noise Generation - Falling In Dub. over 14 years ago
'Falling In Dub' is a great track on its own merit, but the B- side steals the limelight on this 12". Both tracks are hard, sinister, and original. They are reminiscent of 'The Worlds' and 'The Art Of Stalking' by Suburban Knight. A classic 12" from ... See full review
posted a review of Skinny Puppy - Bites. over 14 years ago
A record that is a HUGE influence on music today, and one the biggest musical influences on me growing up, probably as much as "Computer World," but in a different way.
Hard, evil electronic music? How could this be? With an sinister cover featuring ... See full review
posted a review of Force Legato - System (V.1.0.) - System (V.2.0.). over 14 years ago
A simple song- there's not really too much to it when you think about it, so why do I love it so much? The versions are quite similar- the main difference is that the beginning and the end of the songs are reversed. A perfect cross between techno and ... See full review
posted a review of Adrenalin M.O.D. - Four Tunes E.P. over 14 years ago
'Ecstasy' and 'Track This' are absolute acid house masterpieces- from the heart of Detroit no less. Hard thumping tracks that serve as my personal standards for what acid house should be. Can't beat the psychedelic cover design either. You must own ... See full review
posted a review of Gene Loves Jezebel - Discover / Glad To Be Alive. over 14 years ago
Discover is a pure classic. However, the "Glad To Be Alive" record included here is a masterful live performance with a great selection of songs that is much better than most live records out there. They perform with an intensity you can hear and feel, ... See full review
posted a review of Dr. Kevorkian - Aftermath EP. over 14 years ago
Hard sinister tracks found here. All three versions similar but different enough. You need to play this really loud, and keep turning it up. Why did they take away the "Suicide Machine" moniker for this pressing? It fits so well. Also, I miss the ... See full review
posted a review of Various - 313 Detroit. over 14 years ago
Quite a good example of Detroit's 'second generation' techno artists. Reel by Real's 'Distance' is a perfect meld of Detroit Techno and 'Bleeps' and is one of my favorite techno tracks. The only other place that track can be found is the famous and ... See full review
posted a review of Johnny Marr + The Healers (2) - Boomslang. over 14 years ago
A very good, underappreciated release. It has an early 90's Manchester sound, but from 2003. Every track is good, some highlights are "Caught Up" and "Long Gone." Johnny Marr's vocals are solid, but not overpowering, and lets the music take center ... See full review
posted a review of Fischerspooner - Odyssey. over 14 years ago
"Never Win" is a fantastic song. In my opinion it parallels "Take Me Out" by Franz Ferdinand in that it is unique and strong and much more original than the other songs on their releases. On both releases in question, the other tracks are average to ... See full review
posted a review of Various - North American Tour 1987. over 14 years ago
I purchased this during the summer of 1987 at the now defunct (sadly) "Off the Record" record store in Royal Oak, MI, for $5 I think. They had a huge stack of these and you had to peel one off to buy it. I wanted to buy several of them but I used my ... See full review
posted a review of Baby Ford - Children Of The Revolution. over 14 years ago
Fordtrax and Oochy Koochy are the same versions from the "Fordtrax" Double 12", and of course are top notch acid house tracks. The Full 12" Version of Children of the Revolution is by far the best version of this track. Do not confuse it with the Full ... See full review
posted a review of Bigod 20 - The Bog / I-Q. over 14 years ago
When this came out, I liked it but didn't take it too seriously because I thought this band was just a 'light' copy of 'real' industrial bands going at the time. However, looking back at this CD5 as well as "Carpe Diem" I feel that they are good solid ... See full review
posted a review of Suburban Knight - My Sol Dark Direction. over 15 years ago
The first two tracks are great and start the CD with some energy, and of course "The Art of Stalking" is a classic. The other tracks are good too, but not super remarkable. Solid Detroit Techno.
posted a review of Substation - More Life / Take, Take, Take. over 15 years ago
This an underrated classic. Great straightforward industrial/techno tracks out of Detroit. Strongly influenced by the Detroit techno artists as well as Industrial bands like Skinny Puppy and Front 242.
