AllMusic Review by

Patrick Moraz's eighties transition to synths was one that dismayed many fans of his fine piano and analog work, but occasionally he produces a decent electronic album. While much of this electronic instrumental album treads water, the slowly building and soaring opening track "Light Elements" does rank among the best of his work. There is also a clattering of Simmons drums scattered through the album, and they're an important element to the ominous and jittery "GoTo Ophioplomel," though they do make "Stressless" into a bit of an 80s period piece. Other parts of the album are less successful: "Kyushu" is interminable, and "Hyperwaves" finds Moraz recycling "Karu" yet again. "Human Interface" walks paths already well worn by Jarre and Vangelis, but the diehard Moraz fan will find it competently executed.
