    All Music Guide Review

    Essentially a schlockier version of Walter Carlos' Switched on Bach LP, Everything You Always Wanted to Hear on the Moog* boasts four familiar classical works in a most unfamiliar context -- each sound was generated exclusively via synthesizer, right down to the electronic applause that follows the 14-minute rendition of Ravel's Bolero occupying the entirety of side two. "Semi-conducted" (har, har) by Andrew Kadzin and Thomas Z. Shepard, this undeniably fascinating project effectively anticipates the remote, alien soundscapes of the so-called IDM movement -- this is music at its most artificial, bereft of even the smallest trace of humanity. Sure, an all-robot orchestra performing Bizet's Carmen seems funny now -- but just wait until the machines rise up and kill us all, smart guy. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
