To simply say that this record is anything other than a mind expansive mind-swab, would be total and utter sacrilege. Pre dating the happy acid boom of `88 by a couple of years, the only other comparable star within its fraternity, would be New Order`s `low-life` album of 1986. This record came out the year after, and perhaps in ambition succeeds in surpassing the durutti`s then factory stablemates. Without, really, the reliance on the traditional song, aka - chorus/low/high etc - the durutti`s world encompasses an alien and different direction, more a dreamstate than a world that heralds the simple format of predictable poppy lyrics or structure. However, that is not saying that `the guitar and other machines` is just a clever way of realising up front hypertechnology and ambience bled choir godspells, mixed with endless bleeps of `calculater music` . Within the likes of the wonderful regrets of `bordeaux sequence` or the sublime `english landscape tradition` we encounter a vini reilly who seems more than willing to provide beautiful electronica that has rarely been bettered, these pieces remind me of those ancient hymns that represent the dying remnants of a religion. Sometimes in harmony with a minimalist guitar, the sequencers provide a `new wave` perfecto, whilst the deadpan female vocals only enhance the martian, huxley`esque world of the ether. If you were to discover only one durutti column album, this is the one to try, only because it is both an object of rare lost beauty, aswell as being the aural equivilent of strained teutonic violence. It still sounds so way ahead of its time, whether trance, dance, indie rock or folk music - its all here. Good things come in the end.

Most who write here will be DC die-hards. I'm sure many of us have also loyally tried (and many/most failed?) to follow Vini into the 90s and beyond with his experiments.

For those who feel the Return of.. through Without mercy is the seminal period, the guitar and other machines is the culmination an fruition of all that. It all came together in a mature form. This album has all the power of the earlier compositions (involuntarily raising the hairs on your neck) but with some sophistication.

By this/stop at that.
