An excellent introduction to FSA
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Distance serves as an excellent sampler of the music of FSA, bringing together songs that, evidently, were not previously collected in any other form. What is so surprising is how well this collection holds together. Split 50-50 between rock-ish tracks with squalling guitar noise and deep rhythms, and ambient instrumental tracks which evoke images of natural landscapes, alternately calm and turbulent, this is music you can feel coursing through your body. There isn't a dud song among the bunch. Whenever I try to turn friends onto FSA (not always successfully) I start with Distance, and hope they'll explore more of FSA themselves."

"It's hard to argue with these guys, even with their cartoonish Saturday matinee name. The titles alone are sufficiently compelling: if you happen to be thinking about plunging into an ocean (or two), plunge right in; of wandering through November mist in the middle of wherever, away you may wander; to go soaring high. . . This is the earliest FSA, much of it predating the debut FLYING SAUCER ATTACK, though qualitatively it differs little from the later "Phase Two" material. The instrumental tracks tend to work best- -"Instrumental Wish," the intense "Distance" and the two "Oceans" are especially evocative- -as what voice there is to be discerned comes through fairly clunkily. One gets the feeling that the noisier and more processed (FSA's primary concern) the track the less interesting it was in the first place but since there's no way to know, and if you like noise anyway, who cares?"

"Released in 1994,'Distance' was more or less FSA's follow-up to their outstanding self-titled debut CD.But,DO keep in mind this isn't album number two,it's a collection of eight(8)of the duo's 7" often hard-to-find vinyl singles.Well worth having a copy of.Okay,I admit it,I've thoroughly enjoyed EVERY Flying Saucer Attack release that's ever been put out.Tracks here that more than did it for me include "Oceans","Crystal Shade",the title cut "Distance",the folk-influenced "November Mist" and "Oceans 2".Simply another dose of FSA's trademark 'experimental space rock' to fully take in.I had fun doing just that,so will you."
