The Future Sound of London's 'From The Archives' series proved a controversial set of releases initially, with the first three volumes being over-stuffed with tracks and having little cohesion over their often 70 minute+ run times. Dougans and Cobain seemed to be paying attention, and over the following two volumes, the series became more streamlined, with shorter run times and seguing tracks. After a two year wait, the band return with From The Archives Vol. 6 - and they have continued this trend.
Without a second of silence from start to finish, Vol. 6 flows from track to track with the band's trademark atmospheres and 'environments', playing out like a traditional FSOL record. This time, short ambient interlude tracks, reminiscent of material on the recent Environments series, also feature, removing all traces of the scattershot nature of the early volumes in the process. The album also feels chronological, with opening tracks such as 'March of the Money Men', 'Coastline' and 'Cross Winds' accurately charting their acid-tinged techno of the early '90s, and Lifeforms outtake 'Light Forming' sitting comfortably alongside. Things get stranger and more fragmented as the album progresses, with the unsettling sound experiment 'Protractor' and the Tangerine-Dream-put-through-a-blender chaos of 'Induced Coma' representing their mid-to-late '90s work. The album's mid-section sees two of the most worthy pieces from the entire Archives series, the stunningly beautiful ambient epic 'Then Departed', and the jarringly funky 'Jelly Legs'.
Despite the strong body of work and cohesive nature of the record, the album does have a couple of flaws.

Another Excellent Slice of Archives 28 Nov. 2010
By T Boz - Published on Amazon.com
Being Volume 6 of From The Archives, you think FSOL would have run out of good unreleased material, but you're wrong. Volume 6 is perhaps one of the smoothest compilations in the series, with the classic FSOL chill out vibe and rhythms, it's good from beginning to end. Hopefully these volumes will keep coming, while losing none of their quality or freshness, the sounds this band were making 15 years ago are still light years ahead of most modern electronic music.
