4 stars Australia is not the first country you think of for electronic music, but here you go! Although Steven Maxwell von Braund had already released a solo album in 1975 with Monster Planet (an album that I enjoy although those cheesy vocals, as well as that cheesy cover, more looking like a cheap late '70s private pressing than something out of the mid '70s are a bit cringeworthy), this was officially the debut from Cybotron as he got help from Geoff Green, plus Gil "Rats" Matthers on drums on the opening cut. The cover is obviously a tribute to Salvador Dali, with a chameleon, a serval (that yellow spotted cat with the big ears you see), and some donkeys on the cover. Since Steven Maxwell von Braund was born in Germany, it seems no surprise that the Berlin School would be a big influence in the music. Certainly there's a bit more of a rock approach than TD (outside of Cyclone and Force Majeure), this album is totally up your alley for those who enjoy this kind of music. It's one of those albums best listened to as a whole as I really can't pick out a highlight for me because the quality is held up throughout. Really, this album is very much a worthy addition to your collection, but in the case of electronic music of this sort, it's often hard to do a more detailed review.
