Review

Review Text The greatest drawback of the cumbersomely titled Motor City Machine Music: An Exploration of Cybotron is that it includes three mixes of "Cosmic Cars," none of which are the one most know so well. This inexplicable blunder is a potential deal-breaker. Otherwise, the disc contains the bulk of the duo's debut (originally known as Enter, then as the easier-to-recognize Clear), leaving out the muscular B-52's-like "The Line." The non-album cuts, in addition to the versions of "Cosmic Cars," include the instrumental mixes of "Techno City" (1984) and "R-9" (1985), as well as two mixes of X-Ray's "Let's Go" that appeared on a Fantasy 12." (X-Ray was a brief production encounter between Cybotron's Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson.) There's no perceivable logic behind the sequencing of the tracks, so the disc plays out like an arbitrarily thrown-together set. ~ Andy Kellman
