A classic of its time, The Grid's third album, Evolver, is probably their best-known work, spawning a number of hit singles. There's still plenty to enjoy about it, years on, from the zippy "Wake Up" to the infamous banjo on "Swamp Thing" (also known as 'the banjo heard around the world'). The western riff on "Texas Cowboys" is just as good, if not as immediately catchy, just as the guitar on "Throb" gives it rock music's energy, but with a definite techno mindset.

This album is their finest moment, its eletronic soul tempered with unforgettable melodies, superb improvisation and the stuff that makes electronic music so mind-tripping. Sure, you can dance to it. But you can also hear it over and over and hear nuance and shade, degrees and shifts. And, on "Swamp Thing", a cool banjo riff gets merged with unstoppable synth-beats to create something fresh. Grid are far better than 9/10ths of other so-called "techno" acts out there.
