Prog Reviewer
4 stars In addition to be part of the first release from Software composed of three words instead of two, Past-Present-Future Volume II is the second serie of best of compilations by the german duo. It offers simply some of the best moments from the electronic-robotic period of the band. The disc features also one unreleased track that can be cannot be found anywhere else, Love Potion of Artificial Life, a small slow ambient athmospheric piece, nonetheless not their most interesting work.

The rest of the record contains great passages from Beam-Scape, Phancyful-Fire, Electronic Universe Part I and Syn-Code. The choices of the tunes are quite pertinent. The electrying Add Space to Time and the hypnotic sunny ROM-Rise transports inside a computer, like you're trying to escape from a numeric maze against viruses and programs ! The calm comes back with the smoothly sequenced Moonly Twigs and the beautiful Pink Floyd-ish Fencing Clouds. Syn-Code-Power-Part is the odd track in this disc as far as it is very energic and features a saxophone solo. The record concludes with the enchantment of Timberlake Wave Reflections and Night Light, electronic pieces in the vein of Klaus Schulze's Audentity.

Past-Present-Future Volume II gathers great moments from the Software's first era, their best. Recommended to discover the band's music and to electronica ambient fans !
