"Trent Reznor and all the other come latelys cannot hold a MUSICAL candle to these the YOUNG GODFATHERS of proper, electronic rock----in any way, shape, or form....please believe me! Take it from a NIN fan!
I first heard this album way back in 1992 and the recording was already 7 years old at that point....a whole decade before computers were largely used to make music.
Samplers back then were extremely tempermental, with tiny hard drives if at all.....mostly employed floppy discs...NO virtual instruments were around, no commercial libraries thank God. All music was sampled by hard work, experimentation, and talent.
These guys are real Swiss MUSICIANS loaded with talent and IDEAS!!! imagine that, IDEAS!!!.......
This, their first release is very enjoyable to listen to and beautiful throughout.....without being light handed....
And the BEST PART ??????? NO G U I T A R S!!! but you will NOT find a HEAVIER group of well crafted songs anywhere..
My only complaint is that the American record public largely missed this the Mother Load of gorgeous inspired RAWK........it's GREAT TO BE ALIVE"
A Difficult but rewarding album.

"The Young Gods are Swiss not French. Minimalist but huge sound. A Difficult but rewarding album."
