Early 808 sound
Includes the 1989 hit Pacific 202
ZTT label
90 is a brilliantly innovative album combining the early 808 sound and looking forward to unfurrowed musical ground. Rated by many as one of the best electronic albums ever, it set 808 State apart from a mucky morass of dance hacks.
Beginning with the lush pop synth sounds of 'Magical Dream', 808 vocal stylee, and expanding with the tear jerking 'Pacific', the State whiz through a hard bank of '8080808' acid bubbles and then on to mellow 'Sunrise' (remember the sun dance guys?).
