11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Colin McCartney TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 23 May 2008
Format: Audio CD
...contains a piece of dance music history in "Pacific State".

Originally more of a 12" EP than an LP, this Richard D James-sanctioned Rephlex re-issue, never before available on CD, expands the original "Quadrastate" into a 66 minute album with the inclusion of all the tracks from the "Deepville/Let Yourself Go" 12" single plus 4 previously unreleased tunes.

"Pacific State" is a legend in its own right - cited by Jeff Mills in the sleevenotes of his Azuli Records "Choice" compilation as the inspiration for Underground Resistance's "World 2 World". There aren't many white techno artists that can be said to have influenced black ones - that's a measure of just how influential 808 State were. Owners of "90" take note: this CD contains the ORIGINAL version of "Pacific State" NOT the more muzaky, sanitised version which got into the charts. Some may say that there's no difference between them, but the "90" version omitted what for me was the highlight of the track: when the percussion kicks in after the 40 second ambient intro.

The remaining 5 songs from the original album are (still) somewhat in the shadow of "Pacific State": "State Ritual" sounds like something from founder-member Graham Massey's more avant-garde (Factory Records) Biting Tongues outfit. "Fire Cracker" and "State to State" mark the transition between the more experimental sound of the "proper" band line up of Graham Massey, Martin Price and (A Guy Called) Gerald Simpson and the better known chart-tastic sounds of the post-Gerald line up which included local Manchester DJs Andrew Barker and Darren Partington.

My vinyl copy has seen better days since I bought it new for £5.99 in Our Price.

I've been waiting for this to appear on CD for years and am pleased it's finally making an entrance.

All we need is to see their ZTT albums re-released with bonus tracks, the rumour is on 8th August 2008 (yep...080808)...

Rare & Classic, unbeatable combo. Cherish this relic. 27 May 2008
By Alexander C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Much of Quadrastate evolved into Utd. State 90 (as it was released in the US). I suspect most arrived at this product as fans of 808. For the uninitiated, start with Utd State 90 (samples on Amazon). Quadrastate was the predecessor, more raw, if that's possible.
If I had a personal Back to Mine comp, Fire Cracker would be on it.
This has been remastered and is now available for the first time on CD !
Great relic from the late 80s. Hear the connection between Detroit-NYC-Manchester in all its remastered glory.
Also, check out 808 State's website for many great downloadable tunes that never made it out. Lots of great stuff there.

The wait is over 16 May 2008
By Serena Louise Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been waiting for this to be released on CD for many years and never thought it would ever happen. This version also includes material from the Let Yourself Go/Deepville EP which is a real plus.

Yuppers! 8 July 2008
By Pacific808 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Yup....you can definitely tell where the roots of Utd. State 90 lie. Don't discount it on the basis of that, though. It's great to hear these songs in their more raw "state" and it's fun to hear the finished versions on Utd. State 90. There is plenty of other music that didn't evolve to the next level nor make it to other releases so fans will not be disappointed. Quadrastate, along with the 808State Fan Club CD is a gold mine of great music. After being unavailable for so long, Quadrastate fills out the collection. I think it was worth the wait. I realize that this is not really a "review" - more like a "rant." I can't help it. I love this band and I love all of their releases, especially this "lost" treasure.
