    By far one of the freshes if not the freshest electronic album of 2007. It ranks right up there with digitalism debut. I would go as far as to say there are more standout tracks on this album over digitalism. The only flaw of this record is that the last half is a mess. In particular its not worth listening to anything past track 7. Still a great debut that like daft punk and digitalism, By far one of the freshes if not the freshest electronic album of 2007.

Still a great debut that like daft punk and digitalism, they choose to use vintage gear over laptops, which in this day and age is more unique and creative than any ambient or idm out this year.

    Excellent ! This LP is a seminal release for all the guys who like me used to listen to electro-techno stuff for a very long time (the earlie 90's). Ok it's easy for people to dislike those "silly" rave anthems sound, i just like them cause they remind me a lot of things !!! And there's a huge positive feeling listening to that LP !!

    One of the professional reviews had it right: The best party-starter this side of Girl Talk. Not incredibly deep music, but it's very energizing.

    Amazing piece of dance - electronic music. I so love this album, I could listen to this album all day long, especially Sleep Deprivation and I Got This Down. And of course, Hustler. Recommended.

  1. This is a damn good party--best not to miss out.
  2. Not a bad record by a long stretch but a disappointment nonetheless.
  3. Attack Decay Sustain Release defies such trite categorization and, ultimately, what it is or isn’t doesn't really matter. All you need to know is this is quality.
