Slightly weird in places, very funky in places -- Carl Craig has crafted a compelling album here. The man has a great ear for a an off-kilter loop. Truly dancefloor, but truly innovative too. Oscillator is a chugging, lo-fi analogue groove that grows with repeated listens. Paperclip Man might be a tad self-indulgent for some, but Carl never compromises in his quest for atmospheric vibes. Throw is a legendary bouncy track which was rightly picked out by Danny Rampling on one of his comps. The Climax kicks harder but still retains that intriguing melodic feel that Carl loves so much. Clear and Present is moving with its emotional washes and insistent, deep baseline. More funky minimalism follows with Floor. Steam is a very chilled groove, which urges you to "Let off steam". Country Boy Goes Dub has a bonkers and fairly irrelevant title! On Slam Dance and Parking Garage Politics, Carl shows off his techno side a bit more. In summary: an inventive, non-conformist piece of techno-house tomfoolery.

This is superb. It's house music a million miles away from the smooth polished version we know so well. Some of this is abrasive but still funky throughout! It sounds like nothing else. On this recording, Carl Craig proves he can produce electronic music of any kind. It doesn't resemble his "Landcruising" or "Revolutionary...." albums in the slightest. Those albums are great but where those albums are complex techno, this is stripped raw house. You'll know what i mean immediately after you hear the word "Fight!" and the track "Oscillator" kicks in. Buy it.
