Gary Beck's first album in six years starts in dramatic fashion with the militaristic drums and the eerie synths of "Fools Regime" and the quality levels don't drop for the remainder of the release. Although best known for no nonsense, big room techno, this album contains many surprises: "Isle" is a shimmering deep house track featuring plucked strings, on "Return A590", he experiments with detuned synths and an electro bass to create a mutant disco track and "Absolute Gem" is a gorgeous, lush ambient piece. This being Beck there is no shortage of tough techno, including the pounding drums of the title track, but it's his unexpected forays and experiments that impress the most.
