    At time I thought the needle had got stuck in the groove , Repetitive to the point of annoying

    Default Manufactured, Repetitive

    Had it not been for the final track , "New York I love you......" where there were indications of melody, it would have scored a 1 for me, I ended on 2.
    I found the whole album repetitive with over reliance on music machinery.
    I struggled but got through it, just!

    No, I'm familiar with the name Faust but I couldn't name anything by them. That's just gone straight into my Tidal 'to listen to' playlist. All recommendations gratefully received. I'll give that a listen this week. Many thanks.

    I liked this Album Club choice - in fact I like downbeat repetitive, hypnotic music to relax to. Though I can understand why many people here don't like it. (I once proposed 'Koyaanisqatsi', and that really was a 'Marmite' choice!)

    Anyway I enjoyed it - 7/10 from me (another "crusty blues lover")

    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Ticks a lot of boxes for me, really like the phat, 'lo-fi' sound palate and its minimal application in (mostly) taught, symmetrical arrangements (a couple of numbers are a bit long).

    As a whole the album is actually quite varied even though it has a very consistent aesthetic.

    7/10

    This is an ok album for me when it came out, that appeals to ones sense of rhythm and to dancing and basically electronic music.

    It kind of mixes dance and rock influences and is like reintroducing prog rock of an earlier time e.g.kraftwerk etc.

    If you don't like dancing, weren't a raver or have never been to an electronic nightclub with a dj with house, trance, techno etc, you probably won't appreciate this music.

    Some of it is a bit to punky for my tastes (e.g. Some of the vocals) as I tend to think of the electronic genre being away from this, it's why I like the electronic genre as it stands alone from these punk influences. And I just don't like the grungey sound associated to punk music. It's not of my time and the melodies don't create lights in my brain as they tend to be too simple and grungey. But the opening track is very good as a dance number.

    It's quite nouveau and experimental for the genre and not as mainstream as more traditional electronic groups like your underworlds etc, which don't have the rock influences. Some tracks are a bit new order which I like a lot. E.g. All my friends.

    For me it's a good album but but not traditional electronic from dance, house, techno, ambient etc. So it doesn't score unto itself as being of that ilk, but unto itself is a worthwhile album, if only probably now doesn't get repeat listens.
