Subtitle: Electronic listening music from Warp

This compilation ℗ + © 1992 Warp Records. Made in England.

Packaging: standard jewel case with 8-page fold-out booklet.

Artificial Intelligence:
electronic music for the mind created by trans-global electronic innovators who prove music is the one true international language.
Real people whose unity lies in a common sound + spirit and whose 'listening music' cannot be described as either soulless or machine driven. The atmosphere and emotion both come from the musicians, their machines are merely the means to a human end.

The future:
Artificial Intelligence is the first in a series of 'listening albums' from Warp.

I still can't fathom why they included 'Up'. It's not home listening and sticks out like a sore thumb. I love it but it just doesn't work on here imho.

The Dice Man is Aphex Twin.....just in case you were wondering.

I love this album!
very recommended.

This is how it all began. I had a hell of a time categorizing this album in my iTunes. Compilations will do that. Crystel did definitely stick out, but the whole thing delivers. For the record I do not approve of the term "IDM" but we're all slaves to it. To good thinking, and to good music. Peace!

What can I say? You can easily point to this as the birth of IDM, can't you? Early tracks from Autechre, Speedy J, Aphex Twin under an alias, and a track from Alex Patterson of the Orb. Not all of this stands the test of time, but the Autechre tracks sound amazingly ahead of their time, and are still nearly unmatched today by the second and third generation of IDM imitators. This is a piece of history.
