AllMusic Review by

A nice, compact introduction to the RI label, released after its first year in operation. Collects top-line tracks from the first nine RI releases, and adds two new cuts (a limited edition 2xLP adds a third, "Housing"). The cover and title take pot shots at the Warp label's (Artificial Intelligence) compilations, distancing Schmidt's work from the by-then maligned "intelligent techno" tag.
