This is a brilliant collection of the most impressive electronic music of the 90s. All the contributions are of a high standard, but my favorites include Link's evocative "Arcadian," B12's solemn "Scriptures," Autechre's really weird and innovative "Chatter," (along with "Eutow," this is my alltime fave Autechre composition) Beaumont Hannant's bubbling, burbling & hypnotic "Utuba," Richard H Kirk's plinking, plonking, swaying "Reality Net" and Seefeel's chiming & echoing "Spangle," which reminds me a bit of Popol Vuh's "Nosferatu." These are some of the strangest sounds I've ever heard, powerful, varied and innovative. I prefer listening to this album in one go because of the variety, whilst I would never listen to an entire Autechre album, for instance. It should appeal to lovers of electronic music from both the techno to the classical avant garde side of the spectrum.
