"Resurrection" revolves around what sounds like a time-stretched, pitch-bent slap bass, with Hood's trademark building, jagged high hats, bursts of distortion and steely rhythms lending it the requisite dance floor clout. "Obey" is less linear and more distinctive, with grubby, squelchy beats providing the basis for niggling percussion and chiming melodic sequences. It doesn't compare with "The Pace" or "Minus," but more importantly, it lacks the dynamic exuberance of more recent outings like "And Then We Planned Our Escape."
While other techno producers would have sold their mothers to produce this record, it sounds like, as the poster suggested, his heart isn't in it at the moment. Don't fail us now Rob; more than ever, techno needs your unique touch.
