Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

German trance-techno maven Sven Vath's follow-up to 1998's Fusion continues his abandonment of the impenetrable, quasiclassical themes that have marred other elements of his long career, instead putting to use his diverse talents in the genre. A blend of minimalist, Kraftwerkesque electro-cabaret and more straight-ahead techno, the record makes frequent use of Vath's voice, filtering it through all manner of bizarre effects and electronic manipulations. It can be unintentionally (or perhaps intentionally?) humorous at times, like in "Apricot," which threatens to become a toothless version of a forgotten Einstürzende Neubauten song before flowering into a melodious second half. Other times, like in the spare, "robot-pop" keyboard rhythms of "Pathfinder," it's effective as an eerie counterpoint to the song's sneaky, slowly building momentum. Meanwhile, the driving, seedy disco beats of songs like "Dein Schweiss (Your Sweat)" and "Once More..." would sound at home in the dirtiest of Berlin's underground nightclubs, circa 1978. As long as Vath keeps us off balance, the record displays a unique sense of imagination that more techno artists could stand to have in their arsenal. --Matthew Cooke

Sven Vath plays with the senses and leaves you wondering if your sane. Some songs depict an eerie dark voice (who is Vath) and sometimes frightens the listener. I thought this cd was his best yet. It made me feel like I was in space because all the songs reminded me of a dark planet way out there. So if you like to sit back and let music play with your head and make you tap your feet you'll be happy with Contact.

This CD from Sven Vath is one of the bests I've ever heard. He mixes diferent stiles with a perfect armony.Exciting. But if you want hard emotions, you have to hear him in direct. I did it last sunday and it was incredible.
