Dr. Robotnik introduced his music for the first time in 2000 with a self-titled EP that contained extremely interesting music. He mostly relied on conventional electronica and vocals processed through a vocoder, and the music was easily accessible and nearly danceable. When it comes to accessibility, Robotnik's LP takes it even further. Death and Destruction is interesting indeed, but its monotonous sound and naïve songs make it seem flat, and the listener can even feel a bit embarrassed while listening to it. But Death and Destruction has its moments, and it works fine within certain limitations. Dr. Robotnik knows quite well what he is doing, and as long as he is willing to develop his music further, listeners can wait for quite a while until his next album.
