As a retrospective of Kirk Degiorgio’s work as As One, <I>So Far (So Good)</I> stands head and shoulders above similar albums. First, there’s Degiorgio’s extraordinary range, from Detroit techno to electro to jazz to tech-house –- all of it chronologically charted over these two discs. Second, the album is made up mostly of unreleased tracks or tracks from long out-of-print albums (strangely, though, his jazzy work from <I>Planetary Folklore</I> isn’t represented here). The unreleased tracks tend towards the ambient side, which brings nice contrast to the more beat-heavy <I>21st Century Soul</I> tracks which close the album. Certainly a good place to start for those who want to discover the soul behind the machines.

This album doesn't just represent what was good about the work of Kirk DeGiorgio, but what is good in electronic soul as a whole. It ranges from really lush, chill out session type jams to all out, uplifting dancefloor cuts that could inspire any listener to get up and move something. I love this album. If you've never heard this man's work before, start here and work your way back - you will not be disappointed.
