CD Reviews

Quality techno before techno was cliche
Joseph Geni | Evanston, Illinois United States | 08/15/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a dance record. People who have first heard Future Sound of London's later phases of dub, noise, and psychedelic electro will find this as kind of a shock, but it's almost a continuous technofest. Here and there the deep, thick sonic soundscape mixes over the beats that hint at what would come later. But for the most part, it's straight infectious dance music that's a little dated but is still a quality work. "Papua New Guinea" is the most well known track but the rest is hardly filler. The whole thing still stands up well, even over a decade later."
Future Sound Of London - 'Accelerator' (Cleopatra)

"Good electronic/ambient artist's very first CD,originally put out in 1991.Took me awhile to land a copy of this title.FSOL is strictly a duo,members are Garry Cobain and Brian Douglas.Really quite a piece of work here,that is IF you dig this genre.Tracks that I remember to my liking were "Expander",their inspiring single "Papua New Guinea"(have seen this tune mentioned in magazine reviews and articles before),"1 To 8" and "Pulse State".Should appeal to some fans of The Orb,Meat Beat Manifesto,Sky Lab and Chemical Brothers."
