Unreasonable Behaviour

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mike Gwertzman
Parisian Label owner, producer, and world-famous DJ Laurent Garnier legitimized French techno long before anyone had ever heard of Daft Punk, Air, or Cassius. And while the French sound has become synonymous with cheeky, refried disco loops and samples, Garnier continues to push his music forward, exploring the boundaries of moody, dark techno while fusing together live instrumentation with electronic beats and bleeps. Garnier nicely balances his dance floor impulses with a more introspective vibe on Unreasonable Behaviour. The ominous 4/4 stompers "Dangerous Drive" and "The Sound of the Big Babou" will surely please techno-heads who like it dark, with both tracks ...

Barnes & Noble - Mike Gwertzman
Parisian Label owner, producer, and world-famous DJ Laurent Garnier legitimized French techno long before anyone had ever heard of Daft Punk, Air, or Cassius. And while the French sound has become synonymous with cheeky, refried disco loops and samples, Garnier continues to push his music forward, exploring the boundaries of moody, dark techno while fusing together live instrumentation with electronic beats and bleeps. Garnier nicely balances his dance floor impulses with a more introspective vibe on Unreasonable Behaviour. The ominous 4/4 stompers "Dangerous Drive" and "The Sound of the Big Babou" will surely please techno-heads who like it dark, with both tracks driven by spiraling analogue synthesizers and heavy kick drums. But it's Garnier's more abstract material that's most compelling: The atmospheric breakbeats of "Cycles D'Oppositions" sound at home with the work of Boards of Canada, while the saxophones on "The Man with the Red Face" continue the jazz-techno explorations of Carl Craig's Innerzone Orchestra. Unreasonable Behaviour is a mature album and Garnier's most polished work, a true post-millennium classic that should open up many minds about the sonic possibilities inherent in electronic music.
All Music Guide - John Bush
More complex and idiosyncratic than his previous full-length works (and much less danceable as a consequence), Unreasonable Behaviour focuses on midtempo jams in the verge between evocative techno, electro-jazz, and even melancholy synth-pop. If 1997's 30 was his Chicago album, this one is definitely the Detroit installment, from the Motor City shoutouts at the end of the excellent "Communications from the Lab" to the future-imperfect electro track "Greed (Part 1+2)." Still, most of these tracks come closer to updated jazz-fusion than techno, with highlights like "City Sphere," "The Sound of the Big Babou," and "Forgotten Thoughts" driven by fuzzy, distorted melodies with dreamy synthesizer lines over the top and an emphasis on live(-sounding) drumming. He'd surely think twice before plugging any of these tracks into one of his DJ sets, but Unreasonable Behaviour is a solid fusion of jazz and techno.
Entertainment Weekly - Will Hermes
His sound has grown, and his latest unleashes acoustic bass, free-jazzy horns, and assorted birds in a rugged electrosoundscape.
