Format: Audio CD
Every track on this album is a winner. This is not surprising when guests on this album include Carl Craig, Tony Thorpe and Alex Paterson.
Opener 'Interstate' starts off with a riff like electronic rhythm and evolves into an atmospheric dance track. 'Civilization' is the Carl Craig collaboration. When at first you hear Craig's cubase drum technique, you may be taken aback, but on further listens this will be one of your faves.
Alex Paterson contributes with 'Davy Jones Locker', a beautiful ambient track and following that up is the stop and start rhythms of the Derrick May penned 'Big Sky City'. What more could you ask for? This is a virtual roll call of Detroit's finest!
'Good Morning' and 'Night Owl' are superb building tracks full of delicate melodies. 'Power of Seven' and 'Hangar 84' are in trance territory and show the chart toppers how good trance music is really done.
The final track 'Europa' finishes the album with aplomb. It's a perfect track, nothing innovative, but perfect at what it is, a 4/4 beat driven track with gorgeous melodies aimed at your mind not your feet.

This day 07 - 07 - 07 has all sorts of connotations, but in this case, I thought I'd return to one of System 7's "easier" albums. The title is right too.......

I've been a fan of Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy for more years than I care to remember and have spent the last few months very much enjoying their earlier work from the seventies.

This is one heck of a good album. Every track showing different sides to Steve and Miquette's imagination. There's also a good bit more of Steve's guitar work too, although it's well buried in the mix, or just contributing as any other instrument does, rather than taking the lead..

Forget the "Dance music" tag and just try to get behind the obvious. I know I've said this before, but Steve and Miquette have always tried to lift the listener into a higher, happier state of mind and the "Osmosis" suite does just that, given half a chance. The rhythms take you along but listen behind that and you're sent on a journey easily on a par with, although rather different to any of my favourite German "Electronic Music" artists.

System 7 continue to delight with their more recent offerings too, but I recommend this one as a superb example of its type...

I was introduced to Steve Hillage's 70s solo albums (Fish Rising/Motivation radio etc.) about 20 years ago, and very narrowly missed out on working with him in the early 90s when we were both working with Chrysalis in London (long sad story). I then 'discovered' System 7 quite by accident and was really excited. This was the first System 7 album i bought, and it coincided with a move toward Electronica in my own career (i was a guitarist in rock/funk bands, but had recently started producing electronic music for Film and TV), so it came as a pleasant suprise to hear how well Steve had incorporated his fluid and inspired guitar playing into a genre that traditionally doesn't sit well with the Electric guitar. Very few people have got away with it, especially in 4/4 dance numbers. Anyway, there are some really inspired moments on this album,and i responded most at the time to 'Mekotoub' which is a trance 4/4 number near the end of the album. But in retrospect, i think System 7 are best staying more ambient and chilled, as there are people out there who do 4/4 trance shakers with more confidence and believability than System 7. It is within the more laid back tracks on this album that Steve and Miquette really channel their sublime qualities best. On the whole though, i think this is an excellent piece of work, and the mix of tempo/style keeps things fresh.

More Detroit, less trance 29 April 2000
By DAC Crowell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Following on the heels of the epic double set "7.3", Hillage and Co. came up with this harder-edged album that incorporates more elements from the Detroit and Chicago styles of the period, and less of the flowing trance atmospherics that characterized the prior two releases. Hillage also gave a tip o' the hat to German legends NEU! on the opening track, "Interstate", which is one of the standouts here. But in places, there's a lack of focus that wasn't present previously, and that shorts this set by a star. Notably, the collaboration with Derrick May on "Big Sky City" seriously disappoints; at this point, Derrick was much more of a name than a real musical figure, and it shows here. But for those looking for something trippy but with a little more edge to it, this is a good disc to check out, with Orb-ish bits sitting side-by-side with stuff that's definitely out of The D. Hillage is definitely working on extending System 7's range here, and the results most of time work. Well worth your time.

Get this while it's on the market, before you miss out. Electronic music can be energetic and also relaxing and beautiful, this album proves it.

Very surprised 4 Sep 2004
By Paul Watson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a Steve Hillage fan firstly, a Gong fan secondly(Must check out Clearlight Symphony and Khan in due course) and most definitely NOT a Dance etc fan(ie Techno/Trance). However, after getting this CD, I was overly surprised. It is a great intro to ppl like me. You can tell there is a lot of thought that goes on in Mr Hillages mind, and some of the dance beats are well catchy. I did like Rainbow Dome music for the Head space trip etc so I knew what to expect. I am foremostly a Blues Rock and Prog Rock fan, and will never be a Dance fan. I have since bought 777 (Well pleased with that too) and have just ordered Fire and Water. Would love to get as recent photo of Steve (All I know of him is his long hair and beard-Spit image of Jesus).You should also check out System 7 on Ozric Tentacles CD Floating Seeds Re-Mix
Well done techno 28 April 2008
By EtherealCereal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For the uninitiated, the task of finding a suitable techno CD is daunting. For the people who spend hours scouring CD bins hoping to find something above the standard four-beat-boom-boom-fare of electronic music, this CD is like an oasis in a desert. It embraces all that is wonderful about electronic music while avoiding the pitfalls of become too predictable, or formulaic. I loved Steve Hillage's early work with Gong, his solo work after Gong, and the magnificent Rainbow Dome Musick. Unfortunately, this CD was followed by a foray into more cliche techno waters (Seventh Wave), which were not my taste.
Still has classic moments after all this time 16 Sep 2008
By M. Broadstreet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's nice to see Steve Hillage showing up on other electronic artist's works again, and his recent output on his own shows that you don't need to be in your teens/twenties to still put out relevant music.

This album has some great moments, I particularly enjoy the slower bits. Glad to have found this again (had lost my original copy a few years back).
