"The title says it well, this is a compilation of detroit-styled grooves, banging all the way.
While to me the 'album' loses effect after the first half, taken individually the tracks are deep, funky and damn banging.
And of course, 'The Bells' is there, making any dancefloor-head gurn like a maniac.
Reccomended for those who have heard other Jeff Mills stuff and liked it."
Detroit at its best

"Like the Auto industry--labeled "Detroit" by American journalists--this was like the 1970's for G.M.. Mills style, at its best, was this album. Like another review, spin Alarms, Bells, or Paradise, and you will have a pleased audiance.
I find that some of the influence of this album made its way on a sonderweg and influenced the Tresor/Berlin movements; it can be heard in later artists that Mill's inspired.
Mill's sound, as it might be labeled "Detroit," is clean and simple. It's 4/4 at it's best; never polluted by stupid lyrics or anything that shouldn't be there. If you're looking for something to get your floor dancing, look no further than this album."
Classic Detroit Techno

"How can you say anything bad about a cd that includes the Detroit Techno Classics "Alarm and The Bells". Both of these tracks can be played at anytime during a party and the crowd will love them. I think Mills was hitting his Peak during the production years of the tracks on this cd, although some are from earlier Waveform days. Also prepare yourself for duplicate tracks if you buy some of the other compilations As Mills Likes to Recycle his music through time."
