I agree with with all the positive comments above.Imagine if Virgin had all they needed for their first Techno L.P,this masterpiece might not exist.This represents all the magic of Techno.Big crunchy beats with the savage Detroit hi-hats,combined with those gorgeous heavenly synths.They are so beautiful and ethereal in their magical swirls and patterns,that do something so special to me whenever I hear it.Not just my fave Techno tune,but fave Dance track ever.I once met Mr May at the Hacienda in the very early 90,s.I told him that I loved his music and it had had a profound effect upon my life.He hugged me,blessed me and took the record he had just mixed out of, and rubbed it on my head.A strange but lovely gesture from the king of heartbreaking Techno.

"It Is What It Is" was written in a single night, when Virgin found that they didn't have enough quality tracks for their "Techno - The new Dance Sound Of Detroit" album. It was subsequently released later in 1988 as a single.

What can be said about this track... a futuristic almost romantic' masterpiece that when listened to takes you somewhere beyond the stars and back, it's as close as your going to get to coming up off a good pill without doing one! When i first heard this track it sent a sharp shiver and vibration up my back and my arse went! One of the best tracks ever made in any genre of music, if not the best. A stunning May Masterpiece 5*

NEXT TO "ICON", EASILY THE MOST SOULFUL WORK DERRICK HAS EVER DONE; GRITTY AS THE DOWNTOWN DETROIT STREETS-FILLED WITH THE COMPLEX HI-HAT AND TRIBAL PERCUSSION THAT MUSIC INSTITUTE GRADUATES REMEMBER...A MUST FOR ANYONE COLLECTING 80'S DETROIT TECHNO...
