4.0 out of 5 stars Better than Deeparture in Time 9 Aug 2007
By Colin Mccartney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I always felt that Aril's 1st LP "Deeparture in Time" creaked a little under the weight of expectation of it being the first proper Transmat artist LP (excluding Stacey Pullen's Silent Phase project - a joint release between Transmat and R&S). Now on Peacefrog (who have at last gone back to their roots by releasing a techno record - Readymade FC anyone?) and out of Derrick May's shadow, Brikha (to quote the wonderful John McCready) "draws on his influences without tracing over them". What we have here is a proper Detroit techno LP (OK so he's not from Detroit but I think we can, like Nexus 21 and Kirk Degorgio before him, categorise this as honorary Detroit techno music, on the grounds of him having previously released music on a revered Detroit label). The sound is very clean cut. Anyone lucky enough to own Carl Craig's "Landcruising" or Kenny Larkin's "Azimuth" will at once spot the similarities in style - quintessentially Detroit and one of those rare records that will satisfy not only long standing fans of the genre (myself included) but also, I would imagine, serve as a perfect introduction to this type of music. Or to put it another way, if you don't like this, then you do not (or will not) like Detroit Techno.

5.0 out of 5 stars Techno for the mind 24 May 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is pure Detroit techno for the mind and soul. Very clean beautifully produced music using minimal groovy rhythms staying rooted with a more thoughtful and deeper sound of pure Detroit techno. Clean 4/4 beats with sublime use of layered synth rhythms and catchy funky techno loops. The music is never boring or repetitive creating a fantastic atmosphere into deep plus funky pure Detroit Techno, and even at times can be an emotional listening journey. This album may take a few spins before the magic really shines through, as with Kenny Larkins beautiful 'The Narcissist' album, but once it does the music will remain with you long after the album has finished. A great album for those into techno for the mind and for those who prefer not to hit the dancefloor.

5.0 out of 5 stars All-Time Favorite Album 3 May 2014
By Fabian Soliz - Published on Amazon.com
I can't get over how much I like listening to this music. And I haven't heard anything that compares to it. More Human, Lady 707 and Contact are great tracks, but the best tracks in my opinion are Room 337 and Kept Within. I've probably heard Kept Within hundreds of times and will probably listen to it a hundred more.
5.0 out of 5 stars This is some good quality music 1 Oct 2013
By Buckie - Published on Amazon.com

I came across track 'Leaving Me' on Pandora. Absolutely loved it every time it played on the stream. Finally had to come and check out this guy.
"Leaving Me" is such a phenomenal track, that it is worth paying for the whole album just to get this track.
I am not big into Detroit Techno, I usually prefer atmospheric dnb, progressive house/trance, some deep house and of course lets not forget laid back stuff like Groove Salad from SOMAfm. (Electronica has so many subgenres, I choose to stop naming here)
In any case, the album is well worth a listen. You might have to 'create' a better association with this one, instead of just playing it. Try to imagine yourself in an old smoke filled club (yeah the one with a lot of dark corners), in a semi-full 'techno' room on the second floor, the DJ is hidden in the dark booth with only faint red light radiating from the equipment. A bunch of strangers on the dance floor moving like a synchronous ant hill eliminated by random strobes. The sound is so tight, you think you are wearing headphones. This should put you in the right place, its least it does for me.
'Last One' 'Lady 707' and 'Room 337' 'Ex Machina' 'Kept Within' are definitely good tracks once you get off the roller coaster called 'Leaving Me'.
The rest are listenable, but too techno-ish for me. I prefer the atmospheric stuff. I probably would skip the Anna's Theme all together though. Not sure what Aril was doing there.
The album cover is also quite good. It took me a little bit to figure out that I am looking at a train snow plow and not an ancient structure somewhere in Asia.

If I was helpful to you with my ramblings, hit the yes button. It will make my day.

This album blew me away. If you are into a smooth techno beat this is for you.
5.0 out of 5 stars Aril Brikha composes another masterpiece 4 Aug 2007
By Michael Shumay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Following his brilliant debut, 'Deeparture in Time' on Detroit's Transmat label, this Persian-Swede coolly defines what great electronic music is all about. This eagerly-anticipated follow-up simply transcends techno, yet embodies the spacy, ethereal rhythmic flow which the pioneers, such as Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, and Richie Hawtin, began to establish over twenty-five years ago. This album is truly timeless. A must-listen for any aficionado of the progressive sound.
