90's my fave 808 album; although it's short, it seems to have an 'aura' (?) and highly electronic sound, whilst still remaining emotive in the best techno tradition. It never sounded particularly 'ravey/dancefloor' compared to the house and proto-hardcore the DJs were playing at the time, and had a maturity and sense of discovery that few club tracks can portray.
It's best listened to start-to-finish in one go, as the order of the tracks and the way they flow into each other is near perfection. I'd say that on average, i've listened to 90 once a week for the past 12/13 years and have never grown tired. It hasn't dated because it's an original work of art and will remain timeless like a Picasso or Motzart!!!!!!
Soz, I'll get down off the high horse now, shall I?!!!
There are numerous 'moments' on the album, but my fave has to be the end of Cobra Bora with the soaring Moog lines, fading into Pacific. Or maybe it's the expansive atmospherics at the beginning of Sunrise...f*** knows...it's all ace!
