5.0 out of 5 stars New Moderns, 8 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Travelogue (Audio CD)
Just good!
A time capsule of past futures, old futures, all futures can sometimes be the right futures.

All the soundscaping here sounds so far away in the future still I just can't wait till it arrives!
The Dr who's of modern music. New Moderns!
79's a good year for time travelling to the future.
Travelogue-ing the synth, to bright warm and new colourful sound hues and textures, simply wonderful.

Points of clarification.

Being boiled was eventually a huge hit single in early 82, No.6 uk charts.

Dare is Not the first fully sequenced album (as another reviewer here erroneously states) nor was it the first to feature the linn drum.

Herbie Hancock And Donna Summer Both used it on their 1980 albums respectively 'textures' and 'Grand illusion' were their tracks, released around september 1980 after they were recorded.
Talking heads 1980 album also used fairlight by the glutenous dozen!!
And trevor horns 'adventures in modern recording' started very early 81 released september 81 was the zietgeist of the whole medium!
There you have it.
And the pete shelley homosapian album used sampling and synths etc well before 'Dare
'
There are quite a few albums prior to dare to use all that kind of drum and sequencing techology! Just look for it you will find it, And to the fullest.
Reproduction, remains a bastion, of analogue electronic sound and imagery, the height of creativity the hieght of imagination and way ahead on many levels.
A marvellous album and truly fantastic synthiaship!
