Utd. State 90 is probably the best electronic dance music album ever made. 808 State are my favorite electronic music artists. They were from the moment I heard Pacific 202 and this album back in 1989/90 and remain so to this day. The amount of musical genius applied to their music just blows my mind.

It was always a curious thing for me that (at least here in America) I never heard an 808 State song at the rave. I went to my first rave in 1990 or 91 and continued to do so for the rest of my life. I think maybe 808 State was simply too good for the dancefloor.
This was music for the mind and soul as much as the body. Was it too cerebral? Was it too far removed from the 4/4 beats? Was it too different than the hardcore sound that was ruling the dancefloors? I kind of think so. Otherwise, I don't know why it was never played here. I can't speak for my raver brothers and sisters over in the UK, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.
