Just snagged a copy of this at my favorite local record store here in Oklahoma (Guestroom Records) and it sounds terrific! I'm going to need to get a vinyl sleeve for it though because the disc is simply put inside the thin cardboard sleeve and I don't like my records being stored that way. Otherwise I'm totally stoked to have this and the rarity is going to cause it to get into much higher prices probably. Snag this now if you can.

I can understand when a repress tries to honour the original design, but why have the remaster on the one disc with 25 minutes of sound on each side?

Horrible pressing. The disc is extremely thin. The size is a bit bigger so you can't listen to it on cheap turntables. Avoid this release.

There is also reissue without the extra 7 inch on Jumpin Pumpin, got mine from Juno.co.uk for 15 GBP.

What's the story behind R&S sleevechange from the original label? The Jumpin' & Pumpin' release is the original sleeve? Biosphere's releases also got a different sleeves than the original labels releases.

Of this album, Lifeforms, and Dead Cities, I would have to consider Accelerator to be my favorite. It's a tough choice, I'd give them all 5/5, but Accelerator is just so elegantly simple. Lifeforms and Dead Cities both consisted of a very dark, dystopian atmosphere, especially Dead Cities. Their strong suit was that they were able to place you into an entirely new, foreign setting. This album is more like transcending into another dimension, one that can't even be imagined, as it is completely abstract in nature. Techno at its core, while the other two are more ambient.

Calcium begs to be heard by everyone on the planet. Papua New Guinea became the worldwide underground hit. Generation Y'ers can probably recollect hearing this song at least once, although they may not know the title or author. FSOL are unlike trance or house which tends to sound spooky, angry, or happy. The sadness and precise placements of certain sounds gives the overall album a professional, timeless feel to it without the effect of cheesy and over-edited others. In future LP's FSOL become adventurous, leaving behind less interesting tunes in their wake. This is not to say that they still concoct some magnificent tracks per album. They just don't pack the levels of concentration that this one does. As with Orbital, Daft Punk, Leftfield, and Armand van Helden, it is a little disappointing that these musicians didn't attain the fame that they could have. With the mere injection of an unknown diva, these "underground" artists could have become pop icons. I feel that this album is the pinnacle of that era of underrated pop. Oh well...
