Performer Notes
  • The trio hit their stride with second album Solid State Survivor, a brisk and confident set of synth-disco-pop that continues along the line drawn five years before by Kraftwerk. Fun-loving and breezy where Kraftwerk had been ponderous and statuesque, the album sets out YMO's template for electronic pop with less minimalism and a more varying use of synthesizer lines. The English lyrics, written by Chris Mosdell but sung by YMO themselves, make for hilarious listening especially on a cover of the Beatles' "Day Tripper." ~ John Bush
Professional Reviews
Q (3/04, p.118) - 3 stars out of 5 - "SOLID STATE SURVIVOR, their second release, crackles joyfully with the sort of techno-pop that laid the foundations for the Human League and Pet Shop Boys."

Uncut (3/04, p.108) - 3 stars out of 5 - "YMO draw a more delicate palette of techno-watercolours than their Teutonic counterparts..."

Mojo (Publisher) (3/04, p.115) - 3 stars out of 5 - "Kraftwerk could never have produced anything that rocked like the opening instrumental 'Technopolis'."
