In a contemporary review, The Guardian gave a very favourable review of the album, stating that the album "somehow managing to salvage sounds which others feel but fail to express. Musik is music as you've never heard it before." The review concluded that "when people look back and hail Kraftwerk, Larry Heard, DJ Pierre and Derrick May as the most influential artists in this genre, they will soon include Plastikman in this roll-call."
^NME (11/12/94, p.44) - 8 - Excellent - "...Still minimal in the extreme, this is lolloping, human music made with enough hooks to entertain feet and heads alike..."
^Q (1/95, p.259) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...a cerebral rather than a dancefloor experience...more in common with the sparse, other-worldly music of the mid-'80s Detroit techno pioneers than contemporary house....Fascinatingly inhuman..."
