This release is amazing, although...
I got it Mint/New and there was only ONE vinyl and a CD in the album. Might have been some error on the production line, but just in case mentioning it here.
Hope to get this release in full (2 vinyls) soon though.

It's an amazing pressing. Comes with CD and so you can compare. This Vinyl shows, what is possible.

Well, if the tracks on Gus Gus' album 24/7 went on a bit too long, on ARABIAN HORSE, they go the exact opposite. Instead of long acid jams, they now have shorter, compact, almost poppier songs. The opener "Selfoss" might fool you with its driving beat and blippy overtones, but as it ends on an gypsy accordion band, you realize you're in for something different. Indeed, the touches of world music keep things interesting, with a bit of the gypsy recurring on "Deep Inside." Earth makes a reappearance on "Be With Me Now," and Högni Egilsson makes his debut as a vocalist on "Within You." He adds a nice bit of earthiness to "When Your Lover's Gone," as well. But the funkiness stakes out its place firmly on the title track and into the final track, "Benched," which also features some nice slide guitar work. One of the best tracks is perhaps the poppiest and the one most aimed at the dancefloor: "Over." It curbs Earth's R&B stylings to contrast Daníel Ágúst's voice quite nicely.

Let me say first, that I've never been a fan of vocals in my techno.

But this? WOW. A piece of art that shatters preconceptions. This is not techno, no, this stands all on its own.

It is a gem for its time: immaculately produced, with refreshing dynamic range, extensively thought-out scores, and sprinkles of magical delight (accordion anyone?).

The disc plays like theater, or an opera: swirling acts filled with dramatic constructions and deconstructions of two lovers' tensions, with orchestral strings to boot.

Beautiful art, an instant classic.

Favorite track: 3. Deep Inside
