Partly recorded on the island of Ibiza, it incorporates Balearic beat and acid house influences into the group's dance-rock sound. The album was influenced by the then growing acid scene, and Sumner's experiences in the 500 Club in New York and Shroom in London.
The band formed after the demise of Joy Division, following the suicide of lead singer Ian Curtis; they were joined by Gillian Gilbert on keyboards later that year.
At the time of its release, the album was not particularly well-received by critics or audiences, only peaking at number thirty on the UK Albums Chart. However, retrospective critical reception has been very positive
Label: Rhino Records (2) – R2 516187, London Records – R2 516187, Warner Bros. We are now in the process of correcting the problems, but it should be noted that due to the age and condition of some of the original source tapes, the sound quality may vary.
Condition: Very good.
Data de lançamento 17 Junho 1989. Labels Factory Records. Estilo de MúsicaNew-Wave. Membros têm este álbum9.
Fine Time, the opener, helps sum up the power of Technique, while Run, Vanishing Point, and Love Less bring disco to the table. Dream Attack, however", leaves an acoustic feel throughout its 39-40 minute run. All in all, it’s another fine time.
