I am absolutely convinced that Speedy J creates his music three years in the future. Every album that I have bought of his (G Spot, Ginger, A Shocking Hobby), I play it once and go "meh". But when I play it a couple of months/years down the road, I cannot believe what a great treasure I have burried in my music collection. Most music is usually tied to the trends of popular thought and culture. His is the medium that creates its own mythology and thus he drums to the beat of his own dance. That is why I tuck the albums away at first because I am unable to see the beauty (as John Locke would have us believe) in a work that has no known contemporary orgins. The number one stand out track on this album (Public Energy No.1) would have to be "Pure Energy". It is imbued with the fizzle of champagne on your lips and factory workers slaving in an early 20th century steel mill. Buy it, whatever the cost. Damn the expense, you will love it.

HASH(0xb5ab8804) out of 5 stars phenomonal! Jan. 15 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Never has an album moved and inspired me so much. This is a must have. Jochem Paap truly finds a happy medium between the beautiful and terrifying in this experimental masterpeice. As music has always been a means of communicating current ideas and concepts to it's listeners via the audio synchronization of tonal changes and percussion patterns, this album serves to take that concept to higher, forward-looking level. Anyone who has taken a good listen to this knows that and certainly has received powerful suggestion through it. Much love, Speedy.

HASH(0xb5abcd74) out of 5 stars SPeedy J finds balance between dance and experiment March 12 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I first heard this CD in my fav indy CD store, I passed. This was just too weird for me, all the noise elements dominating the record. Later, I decided to try again, and I'm glad I did. This CD is a very clever and deliberate search for danceable, yet very experimental, rhythmic music. Melodic elements are near absent, unlike Speedy J's earlier CDs, but the noisy bits, which sound just weird at first, are actually just a new form of the old stuff. This album still gets better every time I listen to it, after almost 2 years.

HASH(0xb5611540) out of 5 stars this CD is excellent,takes some getting used to April 28 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I admit when I first bought it and popped it in,I was dissapointed ,being an old Speedy J fan since ginger. Was used to the dreaminess and beauty. But I have just recently been listening to 'public energy no1' And I really do like it. Speedy J Still has the dreaminess of his last two releases and adds a very hard edge to it,took some getting used to but ,its brilliant (best in headphones:)

HASH(0xb57c66d8) out of 5 stars Very strong release Dec 14 2015
By Mons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This arrived on the heels of Dutch techno wunderkind's two albums for the Warp label: Ginger and G spot, which are the ultimate statements in smooth, silky techno - all wispy pads and chattering Roland drum machine rhythms. Many fans ran away screaming holding their ears at this change of direction, which introduced harder, crunching beats and distortion. But this is far from unlistenable noise. Yes the beats are harder but the trademark Speedy J synthscapes are still there floating serenely over the pummelling beats. And Speedy J’s strong sense of melody and drama are intact. And boy does it swing. Pubic Energy No. 1 is strong release with many highlights. Strongly recommended.
