(5 out of 5 stars)

"This isn't the best CD ever made by anyone ever... it's just my personal favorite.Don Solaris is stunningly inventive and original, both like unlike anything the band has done before or since. It draws together all corners of the electronic music world to create a gritty, cohesive sound that is a true joy to listen to. There's a good smattering of gritty drum-n-bass and industrial dance tracks in here, to be sure, but the real strength of the album lies in the vocal cuts, which are each different and molded around the individual voices of the singers, particularly Bond with Mike Doughty of Soul Coughing, and the ballady Lopez with James Dean Bradfield wailing about golf over a 5:4 beat. Azura is a sublime drum-n-bass cut with Louise Rhodes of Lamb as well. Most Don Solarisites like that one best.In sum, this album would have caused a revolution in dance music if a few more people had bothered to listen back in '96 when it came out. Check this thing out. Now."
Very good

"I am a little surprised that no one else has reviewed this album yet. I bought it a little aftr it came out, after buying an import single of Azura. I loved that single, and had a hell of a time finding Don Solaris. I finally found it, and fell in love with it immediatly. Some of the songs are a little uninteresting, but Azura and a few others make it worthwhile. Plus, it made me keep an eye out for Louise Rhodes, and I eventually found Lamb, one of the best CD's I've ever purchased. Both are highly recommended."
One of my favorites

"An underrated album if ever there was one, a seemless and beautiful work of electronic music, 808 didn't take the dark path, and start pumping the lifeless, unimaginative corporate schlock that began taking over the "techno" genre about this time (mid-90s), but that's a good thing. A bit of a break with their past, with a more experimental feel, as witness "Intro" and "Banacheq." "Black Dartangon," "Balboa," and "Jereusahat" among my favorite tracks as well."
