Review by Modrigue
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 unequal. 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. This said, the other tunes are rather good. "Isotopic Moments" has some nice floating guitar and "Europe Transfer" some reminiscences of TD's "Tangram". One of the most efficient track here is the robotic "Future Generation"; the duo is truly in his territory here. But the highlight of the disc is of course the 24 minutes long "Yourovision". The song contains many changing themes and rhythms, 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 landscape of the 80's, but with no significant novelties. Anyway, an enjoyable album for Berlin electronic school fans.
