CD Reviews

All electronic music compilations should be like this
Jay M | Dublin, Ireland | 01/18/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This compilation stands frozen in time (like in an air bubble) in 1993, which was a wonderful year for electronic music. Around that time electronic artists were creating fantastic music, like Autechre, B12 and Black Dog on Warp, and The Orb elesewhere. It was a heyday, now sadly gone, but this compilation remains as a reminder of those times.I usually don't like compilations, so it is a sign of this compilation's quality that I rate it so highly. There isn't a bad track on here. If you like Warp, or IDM, or electronica or have the barest liking of electronic music, you really need to own this CD.The cover art is even magical, everything about this compilation has an air of quality and magic about it. They sure don't make them like this no more!"
Evocative electronica

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This great compilation showcases some of the cutting edge artists making electronic listening music in the early 1990s. The music still sounds fresh and innovative now, especially tracks like Telephone 529 with its muted voice samples, Crystal (Autechre) and I.A.O. (The Clan). Some of these artists were no doubt influenced by Krautrock pioneers like Tangerine Dream, but they've expanded on these influences to create something quite unique. Some of the pieces are highly evocative in their multi-textured splendour, like Spiritual High by UP! and The Egg by Autechre. The sounds on Artificial Intelligence have stood the test of time very well to provide enduring listening pleasure. This one is good, but Artificial Intelligence II is even better as it contains a host of classics by artists like Autechre, B12, Link, Beaumont Hannant and Seefeel, amongst others."
Great entry point to early IDM/Ambient Techno
Kooosh | Portland, OR USA | 02/05/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If I wanted to introduce someone to early IDM, so-called "Intelligent" Dance Music, I would surely choose this little gem of an album. It contains most of the heavy-hitters and pioneers of the genre, many using aliases. Richard James, B12, Richie Hawtin, Autechre, Black Dog, Speedy J are all represented here with fantastic tracks.

I, for one, am a huge fan of the early IDM stuff, before things got a little weird in the genre. Of course, this is a matter of preference and many people will surely disagree. Some will argue that this is overly simplistic and too minimal; that the genre evolved into something better. Perhaps, but my personal sensibilities lie with this earlier, warmer, more analog-sounding style.

Once you've listened and decided that you love this stuff, there is a whole world of fascinating music to uncover. Best of luck and happy listening.
