Even more than Quasar, Grand Prix somehow stands between various styles of electronic music. The album is a little incoherent and cannot really decide for a direction. The title track and the vocoder voice remind one of Kraftwerk in "Grand Prix," while some folk-like melodies recall the music of Mike Oldfield. Tracks that sound like early synth-pop underlaid with dance grooves alternate with quiet and relaxed music that perhaps lead over to the new age sound of Mythos over a decade later. The guitars have disappeared completely and beside the vocoder voice effects the tracks are mainly instrumental. ~ Klaus Kehrle
