If Markus Guentner really titled this after his birth year, then where is my fucking AARP card? He's only three years younger than me, but that means that in 2001, when he made In Moll, his solo debut on Kompakt, he was only 20. Twenty! . Well, I am pleased to report that four years on very little has changed. Guentner still sounds like he's happy exploring ever more subliminal notes in an unending wash of hyper-sustained synth chords. The beats again sound as if they're moving through a tarpit made of cotton candy. The only major deviation is "Hi-Jacked", a sludgly, mid-tempo shuffle that only stands out because it approaches actual music amidst its narcotized surroundings.

Just prior to 1981's release, Markus Guentner's Kompakt labelmate Justus Köhncke produced an album titled Doppelleben (German for "Double Life"). Köhncke's title was appropriate, signifying his constant fluctuations between dance tracks and pop songs, but Guentner's own recording career is more deserving of the tab, since his two working modes - introverted ambient compositions and extroverted house singles - are far more extreme.
