Luke Vibert continues to release great music - actually his material is getting better and better. He is right `up there' with Richard James and the other more popular electronic music makers.
Lover's Acid is a collection of Acid style tracks, some older, some newer. Acid music is a type of electronic music that has an older type of sound to it. Think before the digital/lap-top age - more of a blippy blurpy Roland made sound. The point is, Vibert could have very well made this music on a lap-top (I've seen him live, and he does), but it's made to sound older or classic. That being said - It's a little dance oriented and repetitive, and some tracks have cheesy club parts "Can you imagine, were you will be, in the year 2000?" Vibert manages to pull it off though. I myself like music like this, but be warned. If you're looking for something a little modern sounding and faster - look else where.
If anyone is familiar with Vibert's Warp Records LP, YosepH - this is very similar. In my opinion YosepH - is a bit better - more direct and to the point. But there are some great moments on this album.
Funky Acid Stuff, the opener, is a great track. It has this deep but quick beat and sets the tone for the album.
Homewerk, wow, this is a great track, it makes me dizzy. The beat is everywhere and the base comes in and surprises you.
Gwithian, this is by far the best track on the album. This is my favorite Vibert track. It's so smooth. It's one of those tracks you would picture yourself making love to.
Analord, need I say more. This is an infamous track.
Lover's Acid, this sounds like it could have been on YosepH. It's more industrial, harder hitting acid.
Come On Chaos, wow, another great one, heavy thud beats mixed with blurpy tones.
Orch Garage, I could listen to this one looped forever. It's got something great about it, big blurps of acid and the beat is different.
Dirty F*cker, this ones right up in your face. Just like the title says, this one will get you all messy.
Flyover, another stunning track, closes out the disk nicely.
As you can see I almost mentioned every track (9 out of 12!), that's how good this one is - and the ones I didn't mention are not too bad either. Vibert has this problem on all his releases, there's very rarely a sub-par or below average track. But that's what Luke Vibert's music is; it is accessible music that happens to be really good.
