  1. The secret to Garnier's accessibility lies in his ability to locate fresh specific sounds and organize them sparsely atop the existing framework of electronic dance music.
  2. Unreasonable Behaviour is far from an easy listen. While Garnier is usually highly accessible, here he deviates in favor of a record much more tempestuous, menacing and genre-pushing -- all of which, though foreboding, is wholly more gratifying.
  3. An artist this gifted uses his skills to make music, not cling to style. While the familiar 808s and 909s of techno are rife on Unreasonable Behaviour, the music covers breakbeat, jazz, techno, beat noir, and even hints at Brazilian rhythms.

    Top album; takes a few listens but gradually tracks like communications from the lab grow on you. More accessible than last album 30.

    I've been sorely dissapointed with metacritic's "house" and "techno" secetions, expecting to find some great electronic music. This is was I was looking for all along :D Full Review »
