AC is one of my all time favourite Fax releases. Its equal amount abstract space sounds with equal amounts of groove. A great chiller for a lazy Sunday.

An album for a specific mood. When I first heard AC1, I wasn't terribly
impressed, considering it just slightly above average. Over the years,
like so many other fax releases, it has grown on me. However, it still
requires a certain mood or frame of mind for the optimal listening
experience. In the wrong context it can feel annoying or grating.

Alien Community is certainly an apt title. The single continuous
65m track will definitely conjure up visions of alien landscapes and
toiling klackon hordes. Much of the song consists of shimmering,
pulsating Jonah Sharp alien bells, with plenty of meklar bleeps and
squiggles. The percussion (which sounds like PK's contribution?) starts
early and builds at a glacial pace. Simple hi-hats at first lead to
full blown danceable beats at 30m. A strong rolling bass line completes
the picture.

The only semblance of melody in the entire piece are the aforementioned
Sharp shimmers. They manage to hold enough interest to make it work.
That combined with the catchy beats are enough to propel the album to a
moderately above-average score upon repeated listens. The main negative
would have to be the lack of variation. However, catch it in the right
mood and you'll be rewarded.
