Although a solid album (the source material is brilliant after all) this mix adds nothing and I find that this mix in fact detracts from the songs quite a bit. The songs all sound pitched down, drawing down the energy of the tracks that originally had ... See full review

This one took a while to grow on me. It is subtle and well produced. Not the most dance floor friendly album in the world, but it is solid techno that keeps you interested all the way through nonetheless.
