Review by Modrigue
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Last album from CYBOTRON. With this release, the band wanted to move away from their original TANGERINE DREAM influence by proposing more accessible music. Less fast pulsating hypnotic sequencers, more various sounds and mid-tempo spacey and poppy ambiances.

The first half of the record is my favorite. It has mysterious, intriguing atmospheres. "Eureka" is good although quite a strange choice for an album opening. The title track sound sometimes similar to what ELOY was proposing at the same period. I do enjoy the dark "Suite 16/9th Floor".

The second half is rather heterogeneous. "Encounter" features new-wave guitar play and saxophone! Enjoyable, but a bit too long. On the opposite, "Black Devils Triangle" looks like it was recorded years ago. Too repetitive, but it has its moments. The last track, "We'll be around" is the most surprising: try to imagine a kind of joyful blues-rock, but executed with synthetizers, saxophone and vocoder! I like it, but this has nothing to do on this record.

"Implosion" shows the band experimentating with different styles and changing directions. The whole result is unequal, but nonetheless pleasant. It would have been interesting to see what the band would have done if they had continued. At this time, few electronic formations were incorporating saxophone or new-wave to their style.
