All songs written, played, recorded, mixed and mastered by Dan X.

Real Groove magazine gave the album four stars, saing: "There’s plenty of easy comparisons to be made, overall Gary Numan and Depeche Mode are often thought of from the older regime and Pretty Hate Machine-era Nine Inch Nails for the more caustic stuff…. Battletech is the best underground album I’ve heard in some time."

Einstein Music Journal gave it 7/10, saying: "Sprouting multiple seeds of futuristic punk, alien grunge, contorted new-wave and geographically nondescript Brit-pop, Battletech provides a moderately eclectic genre fix… For a solo debut, Battletech is well guided and ambitious."

Rip It Up: “A low budget mix of Nirvana and New Order? Big words to throw out, one would agree, bit I’ll be damned if I can’t say that the comparison, while not overtly true, is certainly not hyperbolic."

Battletech was recorded May 2008-July 2009 in Kingsland/Avondale, Auckland. Some of the songs were fleshed out in early, practise-room incarnations of Radio Over Moscow (Call Me Wrong, Images Of Bliss) or earlier bands of Dan X's such as Vetox (Pakistan, Images Of Bliss). Anti-Human Nous was originally written for Kittyhawk. The Purpose Of Man dates back as far as 1996.

No-budget videos were released for Images Of Bliss and Anti-Human Nous on YouTube.
