Album Review: Pantha du Prince: Black Noise

MILES OF TRANE REVIEW: YES. Techno is not to everyone's taste, but this is premier electronic music that may have more of a chance with straight rockers because it is less a  simple collective loop of repetitive cool sounds than you might expect from this genre. The droning yet undulating beat is there, certainly, and you can see colors if you stare at a white-painted wall while listening to it through noise canceling headphones, but it goes in different directions throughout, generating interest on multiple levels. At no point are you tempted to get on an elevator so it seems in place. New fan here.
