Miss You Trentemøller's debutalbum on Poker Flat, „The Last Resort is a beautifully crafted, astonishing masterpiece, that will leave you breathless. The 13 instrumental tracks together form a wordless musical story, almost like the soundtrack of a movie. It manages to capture a whole range.
I never got into Trentemøller's previous vinyl tracks, but I soon regretted that mistake as soon as I heard this lush album. Tracks like "Take Me Into Your Skin" and "Moan" are some of the most beautiful songs i've ever heard the beats, the samples and most importantly: the structure.
Subsequently, Trentemøller follows up with his debutalbum on Poker Flat, "The Last Resort" - a beautifully crafted, astonishing masterpiece, that will leave you breathless. It manages to capture a whole range of emotions in subtle melodic miniatures, dreamy ambiences, dusty beats, deep dub-tracks and driving groove-excursions. It may come as a surprise that on "The Last Resort" Trentemøller moves away from the dancefloor and instead produces an introspective album that’s especially great for homelistening (or listening in the car, or on your i-Pod). But hey, from his first release on Audiomatique ("Physical Fraction" from January 2005) we knew the young producer from Copenhagen was able to fuse great melodies and chord progressions with subtle, yet driving beats.
Not that the Danish mixer is above contrasts, as in "Evil Dub," where he allows down-tuned and distorted guitars to run like the proverbial bull in a china shop of elegant, understated programming. The Last Resort is one of electronic music's greatest albums and is in fact my favourite album as well. For those who wish to explore the darker side of electronica or rather the eerie atmosphere of the mind, then The Last Resort is a necessity. If one would rather wish to relax then again the album will match the criteria without question. A startlingly beautiful album, full of strange and yet compelling music.

The album itself is a 13-track collection of new production work, much of it more ambient and atmospheric than the Danish techno DJ/producer's prior releases.
