A rare gem, Landcruising is an electronic concept album that is a dark, cool and subtly immense piece of work. It is perfectly suited to its subject matter, created for - or inspired by - night-time driving. From the click of Craig's seat belt at the start of the album, you are on a journey across dark, strange lands, through amber-glow urban sprawl and lost concrete realms. The sounds reflect perfectly the artificiality of the built environment - complex road systems, dark sinister architecture, the loneliness of cities.
I first heard (and loved) this album shortly after its original release. It has aged well, unlike many electronic albums.
If you want your music to not just entertain but to become a soundtrack to your life, this could be for you. If you also love driving, then Craig's album is as essential for your car as the steering wheel. Landcruising has the ability to turn an otherwise mundane journey into an memorable (cinematic) experience. I would go so far as to say that all contemporary vehicles should come with this album 'as standard'.
