Synopsis

Amazon.com
After almost a decade of sought-after singles, Carl Craig delivered one of the best electronic albums of the '90s. More Songs... is a well-conceived home listening analogue to the dance-floor pyrotechnics of Detroit techno, representing Craig's knack for producing smooth and clean music that retains the edginess and spontaneity that makes Detroit techno worth listening to. Highlights are the majestic "Televised Green Smoke" and the hard-to-find classic "At Les" as well as the smooth vocal textures of "As Time Goes By..." and "Frustration," a collaboration with the legendary Derrick May. When the dust settles on the hype surrounding techno, More Songs... will be one of the few records left standing. --Matthew Corwine

Not Immediately Accessible, but well worth sticking with it

(5 out of 5 stars)

"A difficult album to easily assess, as the music is question is so far normally removed from traditional techno, that reasonable labelling cannot be easily deduced. Think of this as more IDM (intelligent Dance music), resolutely suited to home listening. But every then, the cerebral tone of the music, makes this something that casual listeners with be perplexed by. Is it electronica??...Is it Abstract Techno???....is it Leftfield House???, to be honest it's all of these things and more....never really settling into one genre long enough to be categorized. Listen to the Synth styled house on "Goodbye World", then listen to the ambient techno of "Televised Green Smoke", to see it morph between genres. My First listen was an bewildering but startling listen, the second revelled a layer of complexity completely missed the first time.....so although not an immediately accessible album, its one of this album deserved talked about in specialist music circles for daring to reinvent musical genres & demand intelligent investment from the listener."

"Amazon sent me an e-mail and asked me to review this item. But then I remembered "I don't even speak english" so ...escribiré mi review en castellano. Siempre escuché hablar de este disco como una obra maestra del techno,así que me animé a probarlo (descargando rolas de un P2P)y más tarde a comprarlo en Amazon, y quedé fascinado por la simplicidad de ritmos y pequeños detalles que no cobran vida sino después de varias escuchadas. No puedo decir que tracks son mejores, simplemente es un disco para ser apreciado como unidad, con una terrible excepción: El track 13 "Attitude" es totalmente aCapella, y bastante molesto y no tiene nada que ver con el resto del disco que nisiquiera tiene vocales. Sin embargo, en cada uno de los restntes tracks, los beats son hipnóticos, llenos de "snares" y "hats" antiguos, característicos del Detroit Techno, y los basslines son simplemente de lo mejor (junto con Drexciya de quienes también escribiré un review). Bueno, es todo, espero entiendan este idoma, sino, la verdad, no me importa.... yo me entretuve escribiendo esto."
