Ninety is the second full-length album and first on ZTT Records by British electronic music group 808 State, released in 1989 and featuring the UK Top 40 single 'Pacific State' which reached #10 in November 1989. 808 State's debut album release on ZTT Records wasn't the first major U.K. house/techno release, but arguably, it was the most important at the time, gaining a reputation over the years as a true classic in the field of electronic music.
