Often regarded as Anthony Child's best work, 'Force + Form' collects four meaty slabs of industrial tainted techno together. Cold, minimalist and repetitive bangers which sound like they've been beamed down from aliens from the future. If you're looking for a place to start with the more challenging and harsher tones of techno, then this is a perfect album for you. Surgeon's DJ sets have become legendary too, so if you can catch him at some gritty underground club somewhere, make sure you do so.

This disc surely shows Surgeon's most accessible side. Rather than the twisted ambient tracks and disassociating metallic loops found on basictonalvocabulary and Balance, which, don't get me wrong, are Mr. Child's great strong suit, he attacks here with a deeper style. Hidden beneath his powerful shuffling drum loops are spooky vocal abstractions (some breathing sounds!), deceptive tribal rhythms, and screeching electronic noise, bringing to mind a deranged primal ceremony somewhere deep in the jungles yet-unexplored.
