808 State - Don Solaris
Music on Vinyl
Limited double 180gm gold colored vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket with printed inner sleeves.. Includes four page booklet with text written by Ian Peel. Expanded edition of this 1996 album includes six bonus tracks. In the late '80s, 808 State was at the forefront of England's still developing electronic music scene. Don Solaris, the group's first widely available album in more than four years, was something of a return for the group. The music on this album is diverse, exploring many formats and styles. This album may upon first listen sound too much like a techno-rock crossover. But it is far from that - this music is foremost moody, deep, and full of risks. If you love music, you'll enjoy Don Solaris. It was experimental in the right ways and well ahead of it's time. Includes guest vocals from Mike Doughty, Lou Rhodes, James Dean Bradfield and Ragnhildur Gísladóttir.
