Well worth getting to know,

This review is from: Liberation (Audio CD)
In contrast to the dual DX7 purity and block rockin nu-disco feel of the later DarkDancer, this album comprises more minimal electronica; pure envelopes with an injection of sampled rhythms to keep up interest. Liberation has really grown on me over time, with every track doing something good in my head. The flow of tracks is excellent, with a majestic beginning and end, filled with goodies in between.
Perfect to wind down or work to, the flow of instrumental tracks available is thankfully free from the collaborations (most notably with Thomas Ribiero) instigated by the adventures away from the production seat in the later teens of producer Jacques Lu Cont, that leave DarkDancer dirtied with emotion and a more difficult listen, in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I like DarkDancer too, but it is a wholly different type of album.
In conclusion, Liberation is the kind of album you can listen to over and over again, each time thinking you've found a new favourite track, until you realise you love them all the same. Definately recommended to all and sundry.
