"I have consumed a world of music in my day, and I am on my third copy of this, as I give it away to friends, then find I have to possess a physical copy just in case.
This is going to sound terribly generalized, but: this CD is techno-informed pop with some electric guitar, b-52ish female vocals, and ambient/cinematic breaks. But wait! This is not Aqua -- it all works together beautifully. And it all feels very intentional, rather than a bunch of styles shoehorned in to be commercial. Those who enjoy any of these genres will like this CD. Beautiful stuff.Very very well done, great writing, very entertaining, intelligent but not intellectual or arty. And above all else, it's definately ga-roo-vy. I'm listening to it now. Splurge a penny."
Techno is meant to be like this.

"Scary that this band have never made it big. All the Pop & Techno out there today and yet, RRG were there before any of them. Do yourself a favor and pick this record up."
The most overlooked album of the 90s?

"I purchased this CD during a 3 yr spurt of random CD buying I had in the early & mid 90s. This is one of the few gems that came out of this sad habit but I'm not saying this in a bad way, actually this is a very landmark album in my opinion and even here on Amazon reviews, it still doesn't seem to get noticed, virtually no reviews on it.
This album perfectly merged dance techno with the groovey sounds of the 60s. But Red Red Groovy didn't just cheat like so many DJ composers do and use loops from old albums, no, instead he composed his own sounds and compositions, and executed them perfectly. If hippy had been re-incarnated into the electronic genre, this was the only album to do it (and do it right).
While this album is over 12yrs old at the time of this review, anybody that can appreciate a good concept album or still has a taste for the best of the 90s electronic scene must check this album out."
