3 stars Third opus by YOU, Wonders From The Genetic Factory was released in 1984. The music is more joyful than in the former albums and rather inequal. Yet, the overall is still good.

So let's begin with the bad apples: the opener, Axis, sounds really dated and seems to have no point, whereas Sampling Dance is an useless pre-house exercise. Other tunes listen rather well. Isotopic Moments has some nice floating guitar and Europe Transfer some reminiscence of TD's Tangram. One of the most efficient track here is the robotic Future Generation; the duo is truely on his land here. But the highlight of the disc is of course the 24 minutes long Yourovision. The song contains many changing themes and rythms, slow moments and dreamy sequencer passages. Koyaanisqatsi Xmas is a lengthy bonus live track in which the band plays its favorite themes, mostly sequencer driven. A welcomed addition.

With Wonders From The Genetic Factory, YOU searches new ideas in the evolving landspace of the 80's, but, with no significant novelties. Anyway, an enjoyable album for german electronic school fans.

Modrigue | 3/5 |
