Overview

Future Sound of London returned to active recording with The Isness, a record that trumpets a host of through-the-ages psychedelic influences, from the Beatles to Gong to mid-'70s Pink Floyd to Spacemen 3 to the Chemical Brothers. The opener, "Elysian Feels," has the back-masked strings of "Tomorrow Never Knows," a surprisingly AOR guitar solo, and a few Chemical Brothers breaks. "The Mello Hippo Disco Show" has a hippy vocal floating over a series of funereal chords and some Mellotron effects. It's clear that Garry Cobain and Brian Dougans are still great producers; check out "Osho," an excellent piece of light blaxploitation funk grafted onto film strings.
