The future sound of london accelerator full album


Accelerator is the debut album by British electronica group The Future Sound of London. It is widely regarded as their most "club-oriented" album in that almost all the tracks have a sonic, dance-friendly vibe and it does not contain much of their later, more off-beat, complex, ambient techniques.

Content

Accelerator was released in Britain in 1991, and re-released a year later with two remixes after the commercial success of the single "Papua New Guinea". Due to record label difficulties, it could not be released in the United States until 1996, where it contained a further remix. It was re-released, enhanced, in 2001 worldwide, with a bonus CD entitled "Papua New Guinea Remix Anthology", which contained both old and new remixes of the band's most famous song. Half of the tracks from the album had already been released on previous singles by the pair, making it, a sort of compilation album.

"Papua New Guinea" became an instant club hit in Europe and the States and was featured in the soundtrack for the film Cool World.

Accelerator marked the first time that Future Sound of London worked with frequent collaborator, artist, Buggy G. Riphead, who created the album's cover art.

Accolades

The album (and single Papua New Guinea) was also included in the British music magazine Melody Maker's, end-of-year, best albums / singles retrospective.
