FSOL's debut album, Accelerator, opened a lot of windows for electronic music in 1991 when it was first released. Never before had an artist came along and fused electronica, trance and house in such a successful way. Accelerator was not my introduction to FSOL.. infact it was the very last album I bought of their's. This didn't take away from my listening experience though because each album they release is quite a bit different then the next and there isn't logical progression (usually) so there was nothing to be desired in the sound. This album contains their monster hit "Papua New Guinea" which even to this day still gets occasionally club play. The 2nd disc is actually the remix single for Papua New Guinea that was orginally released separate. A nice bonus but begins to sound a bit repitetive.

An absolutely historical album Originally released in 1991 this album is essential for understand the development of the electronic music during the nineties.

From all the aliases that Brian Dougans & Garry Cobain could have selected for this publishing, they creted this name that actually is the most wellknown: The Future Sound Of London.

That was exactly what "Accelerator" supposed on 1991, nothing else and nothing less that the sound that will dominate on the next ten years at London City.

For two persons that come from the Acid scene (Humanoid), published an album with breakbeats, trip hop, downtempo, ambient, house, techno and some drum & bass rythm structures was really absolutely visionary. Those were the cardinal points of the map in which London music (and electronic music in general) will be moving during the next years.

Today maybe could sound not as visionary, but it have passed practly fifteen years. And it stills sounds actually!

Absolutely great, and absolutely essential. And in this ten anyversary edition with a free bonus cd with "Papua New Guinea Mix Anthology". What else do you want?

<I>Accelerator</I>. If you don’t have this album, you don’t know anything about electronic music. It’s a classic through-and-through. Although it may sound slightly dated, it still stands head-and-shoulders above most techno albums today. With impressive range, from the moody “While Others Cry” and the trance-forerunner “Calcium” to the nu-industrial of “Central Industrial” and the storming “Moscow,” <I>Accelerator</I> still is a great listen. This re-release also includes 10 mixes of “Papua New Guinea,” a title that should inspire devotion among all fans of electronic music. Blue States does its usual downtempo magic on the track, while Simian makes it sound like the carnival from hell. Hybrid (of course) adds some hard breaks, while Satoshi Tomiie makes some dark house. Some good mixes, but do they hold up to the original? What do <b>you</b> think the answer is?
