1 stars I wouldn't come right out and say this album is 'poor'-- it did represent, for a brief moment, the cutting edge of commercial cyber-pop and music born of the computer, flashing, chirping and fractalating it's way into mainstream media, leaving a robotic taste in the mouth. Problem is, there was and is much better tech music being made - like Thomas Metcalf's 'One' (1989) for example - and so, in hindsight, Mr. Hammer's hugely successful TV soundtrack music with its algorhythmics and syn-phonic aspirations doesn't keep its shimmer over the years.
