the 1989 hit Pacific 202
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
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?).
