CD Reviews

Don't dismiss the RAF - britain finally did something good
Duolan Li | ny, ny | 10/28/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"taking sound into new levels, surgeon is still a bit green here (he's capable of a lot in my opinion)- but its a great album, more for the people (traditional dance floor) than some of his lastest. still something new - different than other hard stuff around like mills and all the detroit boys. surgeon proves he can take on the luftewaffe"

"Beautiful, brain-rattling techno, with some tracks blaring off into steel-drum echo-chains of low-tech effects, boxes of reverb, all with the central beat crashing, waves of bass and accident, again and again, over and over, the central black eclipse of the punctuated beat stomping forward into the next track. And the next. And then the melody, or what passes for one, mixing in, louder, louder, a curtain of old electronica, the sound of the 90s, buzzing and flaring and the beat drops out and you're left in headphone space. A really great record. Crisp and fuzzy at the same time, good for mixing, dancing, typing, standing there drinking wine at midnight, good for driving. Good for thinking, the loops and subprocesses, the filigree and space. Again and again, and the beat never stops. The universe is all continuation. Everything sounds like everything else. The beat is continuous. The tracks begin again..."
