Met with a muddled chorus of hisses and hurrahs, Carl Craig 's 2005 overhaul of 1995's Landcruising is, for a lot of Detroit techno and IDM heads, a divisive issue and a possibly baffling way to look back at a touchstone. Rest assured, Craig knew exactly what wrongs to right

Maybe the other reviews don't say it clear: this album is a retake of "Landcruising", the first LP from Carl Craig (this being the third). Motivation to release it was kind of "Landrcruising sounded dated at times, so I wanted to make it again removing the dated parts and enlarging the good parts". The results? Good, but arguable. What I miss most is the so dated but god how I love it electric guitar part in Science Fiction (indeed it removes most of the melody), but the long takes of "One day soon" and other tracks that were too short in "Landcruising" are welcome. Two new tracks are added, which somehow are not at the same level, and in the end,it's a good work, though I clearly prefer the flow of the original album. But listen to "The album formerly known as" and draw your own conclusions.

I agree I think the original is better and I don't get what the fascination techno artists have with messing around with albums that they re-release, Sterac and Monolake have both done this also.

Carl Craig's name has almost become synonymous with Detroit techno -- that unique blend of futurism and soul. With _The Album Formerly Known As..._, he once again sets his footprint firmly in the musical foundation. From the smooth strains of "Technology" to the more frenetic electronic strings of "They Were," Craig never seems at a lack of musical ideas or emotions. "Mind of a Machine," for example, throbs and hisses as it skates along, while "One Day Soon" and "Landcruising" both manage to bring out the soul of the machine. The bright arpeggios of "Sparkle" lend truth the track's title, and Craig ends the album on three beatless tracks that shows he can do as much without percussion as he can with.

Not much more needs saying about the aesthetic quality and standard of this LP I feel - it's nothing short of magnificent: shiver down the back of the spine stuff, throughout. Just a point about the _audio_ quality. I'm curious about the unmistakable 'crunchy' although otherwise technically excellent quality of the 'sound'. It seems evident on most of the tracks save for 'One Day Soon (Version)' and 'Landcruising (Version)'. It reminds me of mucking about many years ago with digital recording and many different sample sizes and sample rates. These somewhat harsher sounding tracks seem to have been recorded or finished in something other than 16-bit 44Khz: so-called CD quality. Hints of aesthetic intent? It does aid the 'surface' retro flavor of this, in a good way, I think. Or perhaps, bearing in mind that this is after all a revamped version of an LP made ten years earlier, it's a trace of the sound of older digital recording technology. 24/bit 96KHz, simply didn't exist back then, certainly not for a burgeoning electronic music producer in Detroit. So no need to adjust your set. Just marvel at how good it sounds, in all ways, despite the limitations of the tech available when it was made.

At the time of writting this review I don't feel like I will ever regret saying it, but Carl Craig's "The album formerly known as..." time after time comes across as the finest post Y2K techno album I've heard. It embodies on one, thematically and sound wise integrated disc everything I seek for in techno, and is an always welcome reminder of why do I enjoy the genre as much as I do in the first pace. It's well intentional, honest, benign, melodic, and most of all, it's 100% self-reliant, ungoverned and uneffected by foreign trends, meaning its quality cannot be measured within a given historical context, if you follow me. It's just timeless music, which will overcome change, and accept the challenge against the best contenders, coming out head and shoulders above the rest.

2005 has seen some of the giants of "electronica" release new and very exciting material. Add Carl Craig to that list. This new album harkens back to "Landcruising" and "More Songs About Food & Revolutionary Art". This is grand, muscular, symphonic Detroit techno that is as good as it gets. It's 5 stars, a desert island disc.

Rolling Flipper
Sorry but u dont know what you're talking about. This isn't "new material that harkens back to Landcruising". It IS Landcrusing! Just brought up to date a bit and with a couple of added tunes. Surely you'd know this if you'd heard Landcruising!

I've still got my original on CD, but desperately wanted the LP version, and then I heard about this release. I was initially concerned about the 'Versions', but my fears were unfounded as the master Carl Craig tweaks, expands and subtley re-shapes the originals whilst all the time keeping the soul of the whole album firmly intact. Highly recommended, both to owners of Landcruising, and to those who have never even heard of it. A worthy classic given a spring clean. Nice one CC.
