5.0 out of 5 stars Ray Man/Man Ray 2 Dec. 1999
By David Antonelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After years of writing off techno as being less interesting, more programatic and ultimately less cve than drum and bass, I finally came across the work of Jeff Mills. I started with Live at The Liquid Room, which for all its dynamism was a bit uninvolving due to the short track time (although if I was actually there in the club, this might have been a good thing) Then I bought Waveform 1 and was blown away by the subtle manipulation of rythm and complexity of each piece. It made a lot of drum and bass seem quite programatic in comparisson. On my last trip to Europe I picked up Purposemaker along with a few drum and bass compilations and the new leftfield album. They were all impressive (especially left field) but the Jeff Mills work had a level of invention and genius that has completely changed my view of Detroit Techno. I have also always been a fan of Man Ray and won an award on a student film which had what I wanted to be a man ray look put into the fluid motion of Alain Renais or Kenneth Anger. So, I respect anyone who is big on Man Ray. Mills pieces each slowly draw you into this introspective world that is as beautiful, daring, original and evocative as the photos of Man Ray. Somebody once told me that tachno wasn't music. I'd like them to hear this and still say that.
Although I'm not always in the mood to listen to Mills, I always look forward to those times I do. Some of the most stunning and original music in my 500 CD collection. People years from now will be talking of Grooverider and Jeff Mills in the same breath as Coltrane and Davis as some of the most innovative musical minds of the century.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pounding Grooves 4 Sept. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The title says it well, this is a compilation of detroit-styled grooves, banging all the way.
While to me the 'album' loses effect after the first half, taken individually the tracks are deep, funky and damn banging.
And of course, 'The Bells' is there, making any dancefloor-head gurn like a maniac.
Reccomended for those who have heard other Jeff Mills stuff and liked it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stonking. 26 Jan. 2005
By Brownthing - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Despite being overplayed, Mill's purpose maker material is still, in my opinion, his best yet. Solid, funky, and beautifully crafted, the influence of these tracks on modern techno is undeniable. Launching the minimal/tribal sound thats still going strong today, they continue to act as a reference point for producers like Sims, Beyer, Mac etc.

If you have turntables, then seek out the vinyl releases. There's nothing better then dimming the lights, cranking up the volume, and rinsing a bit of purpose maker.

3.0 out of 5 stars Classic Detroit Techno 3 Jun. 2005
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
How can you say anything bad about a cd that includes the Detroit Techno Classics "Alarm and The Bells". Both of these tracks can be played at anytime during a party and the crowd will love them. I think Mills was hitting his Peak during the production years of the tracks on this cd, although some are from earlier Waveform days. Also prepare yourself for duplicate tracks if you buy some of the other compilations As Mills Likes to Recycle his music through time.
