AllMusic Review by

It's a bit of a surprise that Cisco Ferreira and Colin McBean could weave aggressive Detroit techno, acid, electro and ambient into such a beguiling, trademarked sound after the styles had been around for over a decade, but the hard-school electronics of this double-disc debut Advent album proved that techno could have a staying power far beyond its original conception. Of the 16 strong tracks, highlights are hard to choose though the renegade cosmic-electro of "Spaceism" and "Farencounters" shine a bit brighter than the rest.
