    While there's nothing wildly original on In Technicolor, the energy and attitude that relative youngsters Georg Conrad and Marius Bubat stir into their psychedelic synthpop and off-kilter electro suggests that they know the rules well enough to be able to gently subvert techno cliches.

    Most of the tracks on In Technicolor could have slotted neatly on to any of the Total 12 compilations the label has released since 1999, but this is top-notch execution of an aesthetic that will always be welcome.

    Marius Bubat and Georg Conrad, assisted by an assorted cast who visited their Cologne, Germany studio--including vocalists Ada and Edi Winarni, and a handful of instrumentalists--have made one of the Kompakt label's more entertaining and less serious albums.

    In Technicolor keeps this young duo striving to sound youthful and adventurous.

    Too much of the album feels restrained, unable to truly revel in the bliss of melody.
