1000 Albums To Listen to Before You Die...

Post by nickking »

Recent music article from The Guardian:

"808 State
Ex:El (1991)
Their 1989 single Pacific State had an enormous impact on the development of acid house, techno and ambient. But it was Ex:El, released at the height of Madchester, that was 808's electronic dance masterpiece, featuring vocal contributions from Björk and Bernard Sumner, and the hands-in-the-air Hacienda classics Cubik and In Yer Face."

Also, 808:90 features in the book '1001 Albums To Hear Before You Die', described as 'the artistic statement the rave generation were previously denied'. 808 are so underrated nowadays though :-?, does no-one realise that 'Newbuild' is the best acid album ever hands-down (IMHO! :) )?

yes steve-newbuild IS the best acid album ever! i realise this.
as far as this kind of music goes-i would say the early stuff:

fingers inc another side
mr fingers ammnesia
baby ford ford trax
808 state newbuild
a guy called gerald hot lemonade
humanoid global
808 state ninety
no smoke international smoke signals
bang the party back to prison
unique 3 jus' unique
sweet exorcist c.c.c.d
808 state ex:el
the klf the white room
man machine step into time
4 hero in rough territory
lfo frequencies
nightmares on wax a word of science
plaid mbuki mvuki

i am not a wealthy man, but i am indeed rich for having experienced these records.
