Product Description

Product Description

Mid-price reissue of a classic album from 1997 by Carl Craig, who is considered to be one of the most important names in the second generation of Detroit techno producers and DJs. After almost a decade of sought-after singles, Carl Craig delivered one of the best electronic albums of the '90s. “More Songs...” is a work of gorgeous, exquisite electronic music that retains the edginess and spontaneity that makes Detroit techno worth listening to. Highlights are the majestic "Televised Green Smoke" and the hard-to-find classic "At Les" as well as the smooth vocal textures of "As Time Goes By..." and "Frustration," a collaboration with the legendary Derrick May. “More Songs …” is one of the most important, and lasting, examples of techno.

After almost a decade of sought-after singles, Carl Craig delivered one of the best electronic albums of the 90s. More Songs About Food and Revolu is a well-conceived home listening analogue to the dance-floor pyrotechnics of Detroit techno, representing Craig's knack for producing smooth and clean music that retains the edginess and spontaneity that makes Detroit techno worth listening to. Highlights are the majestic "Televised Green Smoke" and the hard-to-find classic "At Les" as well as the smooth vocal textures of "As Time Goes By..." and "Frustration", a collaboration with the legendary Derrick May. When the dust settles on the hype surrounding techno, More Songs About Food & Revolu will be one of the few records left standing.--Matthew Corwine

I believe that Carl Craig is a musical genius on a par with legends of American music like Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Marvin Gaye. The only difference is he is making music using electronics and making music right now.
This is his best album. I can't think of another electronic album ever relased which reached such emotional highs. 'Dominas' is a lesson in how to give minimal music heart wrenching soul. 'At Les' is one of the most calming and atomosphereic pieces of music of any genre and 'Televised Green Smoke' is pure Detroit futurism.
If we lived in a world where artistic integrity translated into sales this album would have sold millions. Forget whatever the major labels are pushing as being the 'in' thing and get into the real deal.

Uber producer Carl Craig makes music which years later still causes commotion, resonates with soul and is much in demand. Eschewing the stereotypical clichés of 'banging' techno, Carl Craig makes electronic music with feeling.
"More Songs..." is his tour de force (he has yet to record under his own name since) . It's not immediately engaging but the listener is rewarded many times over with perseverance.
"At Les" is the dominant track here (it first appeared on the seminal "Virtual Sex" compilation in 1993) - a mix of dreamy atmospherics and intimate jazz. The cinematic soundtrack feel continues with "Suspria" think an edgy futuristic ride into a Bladrunner type cityscape.
My two favourite tracks "Dominas" and "As Time Goes By" are near enough the closest to romantic music that techno can make, with Carl Craig's Valentino streak producing deep aquatic chords and subtle ambience. (Both tracks predate even Carl Craig's first album "Landcruising" by many years).
Like fine wine, the album matures with age, and tracks like the dark, brooding "Red Lights" begin to make wonderful sense.
Many techno fans share Carl Craig's view that "everything on the album, I love to death". "Frustration" with the other Detroit guru Derrick May (who took on board a teenage Craig in the late Eighties) oozes an epic soothing sound but marked with erratic digital programming ........simply beauty in music.

A collection of mainly home-listening techno from one of the best Detroit techno producers around. Most of the tracks are excellent, but for me the standouts have to be 'Televised Green Smoke', 'Dominas' and 'At Les'.

An excellent album in my opinion, taking me back a decade to chilled out, peaceful places.

This is a nifty collection of listenable techno, though I have to admit I tire a bit of this genre.
Craig can be inspired and has ample production skills, best demonstrated on the seminal 'Programmed' under the 'Innerzone Orchestra' moniker. Now there's an album to match the output of Coltrane or Miles!
This offering here has its moments, the best one of which can actually be found on 'Programmed', though is no better than average when compared. I have to say I was disappointed.
