If you are more interested in listening to music that sounds like it was made by robots playing keyboards than by humans playing guitars, this album is for you. Unlike some other electroclash-esque compilation that feature modern rock bands flirting with 80's style melodies and synth sounds, this stuff is strictly synth driven. Although this album isn't vocal heavy, it does vear towards standard pop music sound structure rather than towards standard dance-music structure.
Some of the artists on this compilation have made some very electro tracks that are not really accessible to the masses. However, the particular tracks chosen on this compilation are shifted more towards the synthpop than the electro end of the spectrum. These tracks tend to be more fun, shimmery, glossy, & beautiful than gritty, dirty, or funky (if that makes any sense).
If you like Solvent, I expect you would like this, if you liked the music on the Electricity 1 and II compilations you should like this.
If you want really lo-fi analog electro, this is not for you (try Anthony Rother or This is not the 80s). If you want complex and sophisticated beats this is not for you (try Autechre). If you want a disc full of Euro dance floor bangers this is also not for you (try Euromix cds from Tony Romano).
Anyhow, I find this album to be a collection of some great, timeless synthpop that (alas) will never get near the radio.
