Mature work during a time when techno (and me) just grown up. My favorite work of LFO when I was sliding from alternative music to Tekno. In my oppinion this is more kinda industrial techno music. There were a lot of creative artists (even Bowie) crossing boundaries in mid of 90s.

Enough has been said of this album and its place in history. Most are correct. This is going to stand the test of time and prove itself to be the focused and embodied work of an inspired genius. Desert island top three work for me. Just perfect.

this is a great album.
LFO one of my favorites.
Until the year of the dissolution, in 1996, the group was composed of Gez Varley and Mark Bell. In 2003, Bell has reformed the project as one member after the name LFO.
The group is considered one of the pioneers of the bass-heavy techno music.

Probably the finest album of electronic music ever released. 'Frequencies' is nice too but this one has so much more depth to it. The Pioneers strikes back, so to speak, and they leave a permanent mark in the timeline, once again....

What an album, and what a step from "Frequencies".

From the electro-porno of "Tied Up"(this is what AIs listen to during sex) to the swirling ambience of "Ultra Schall" and the floor-filling techno stomping of "Shut Down", "Jason Voorhees" and "Kombat Drinking", Bell and Varley have really branched out from the tight acid-drenched electro-disco of their debut.

A shame this probably won't see a re-release; people now are really missing out. A classic through and through. If you find it, treasure it!

I dont see why everyone raves about the album "Frequencies," for this IS LFO's finest album. I listen to it frequently. There SHOULD be a reissue of this album.

Despite the nostalgic praise heaped on their debut, 'Advance' is the duo's finest hour, a subtle update on the beats n' bleeps of Warp's Artificial Intelligence concept.

Brash, bold, brave and beautiful, 'Advance' is timeless in its own mid-90s kinda way. 40 years ago, this is probably what people thought pop music of the future would sound like.

A really superb album. This is the best I've heard from lfo. I like it way more than the 'freak' stuff they release nowadays (2003). The album has a unique atmosphere that I find hard to describe, it's something outta space, a real trip. But it's not only listening pleasure, there are some really slamming dancefloor tracks on it as well. Also the album as a whole is quite enjoyable in the way the tracks follow and complement eachother. If I would ever have to get rid of all my records apart from one this is probably the one I'd keep...
