All Music Guide - John Duffy
Predating the 1990s international dance music explosion by several years, Information Society took a decidedly European approach to synth pop music, creating songs as much at home on FM radio as on the dancefloor. Fully embracing new studio technology, the then controversial art of sampling, and combining them with catchy hooks, the Minneapolis group became the U.S. response to New Order.

Included in this collection are three bonus tracks, including a looser remix of that very hit from Junior Vasquez. Lesser-known tracks worthy of rediscovery here include the new romantic disco of "Running" and the sensitive but not too sappy ballad "Repetition."

    Awesome cd!

    This is a great cd. I really like the remixes. The song "Running" gets wierd at the end but it's still great. There's one song I really do not like. It's "A Knife and a Fork". I do not understand that song. It's the same phrase over and over again and doesn't have a good beat. But other than that all of the songs are great, especially "Strength" and "What's on your Mind".
