Robot Vengeance – Cruising The Space Time Continuum

Cruising The Space Time ContinuumThe second album from electronica act Robot Vengeance, Cruising The Space Time Continuum is a dandy collection of instrumentals, centering around two common themes: a strong beat and a “space” theme. In some respects, Cruising is fairly retro, in places using samples that I could swear the Art of Noise once used. Standouts include “Dancing Weightless”, with an ever-shifting beat pattern and retro synths, “Fast Enough To Slow Time” and “Faster Robot” (both with great bass lines that appear and disappear), and “Star Clad” with its spacey vocal samples.

3 out of 4Cruising is an album that needs to be listened to at least once on headphones and then on speakers. The bass and beats aren’t done full justice by headphone listening – they’re a decent subwoofer workout – but the intricate synth loops demand at least one “up close” listen.

It’ll be interesting to see what further Robot Vengeance may await us in the future; it’s a promising enough collection that I’m up for more.
