Accelerator is the debut studio album by British electronica group The Future Sound of London. The album was first released in 1991 by the record label Jumpin' & Pumpin'. It is widely regarded as the group's most "club-oriented" album in that almost all the tracks have a sonic, dance-friendly vibe and it does not contain much of their later, more off-beat, complex, ambient techniques.

Popularly believed to be their first album, Accelerator is their first full length to use the Future Sound of London name exclusively but it is their SECOND album. Originally they released tons of singles and eps under various band names, and their first full length was a fake various artist album (a "various artist album" where every band was them) called Earthbeat.

Their first full-length Accelerator charted their dancefloor-friendly early career, after which FSOL moved into deeper, more album-oriented world. Lifeforms was a double-disc set spanning long stretches of breakbeat-flavored ambience.

ACCELERATOR from 1991 was the first full-length album by The Future Sound of London, the duo of Brian Dougans and Gary Cobain who already had a long history of innovative singles behind them under various aliases. This album is often sharply divided from the FSOL albums that followed, called a straightforward dance record instead of the ambient explorations of Lifeforms and beyond. However, listening to this over two decades later, I mostly see this album as of a piece with FSOL's other work. Sure, there is a straightforward 4/4 beat in nearly all the songs.

I was just listening to this and I was moved to post a comment. This album to me is easily in my list of top 10 electronic music albums. It's really meant to be listened to as a CD, straight through, as an experience. Foresee myself in my 60-70s if I live that long playing this. Thank you guys for making this. PNG single-highhandedly changed my life by opening me to the world of techno (even though I'd long been an EBM/industrial guy) in 1991. I used to think it was just about PNG but there's so much more here. Every track incredible. On a lovely spring day, I'll have another.

There is no higher praise than that due of F.S.O.L., and furthermore.the importance of this LP in the evolution of electronic dance music, cannot be overstated.It's the equivalent to dance music, what "Dark Side Of The Moon" was to rock, or prog rockwhen it was first released. Both have had a profound effect on their respective styles of music.Jumpin' & Pumpin' was already firmly established as one of the most cutting edge andforward thinking dance labels in the entire UK by '91, and "Accelerator" by F.S.O.L. wasmore or less their crowning glory, being a sort of mish mash of some of their other alias releases on that label such as Yage, Mental Cube, Luco. From start to finish,every track on this album is pure brilliance, and the production quality is stunning.multidimensional and compelling in a way that very few full length LP's can everachieve. A "Future Sound " indeed then and now. It easily qualifies as one ofthe most epic electronic dance LP's of the 1990's. Everyone who enjoys thistype of music needs to listen to this at least a 100 times in their lifetime.

Popularly believed to be their first album, Accelerator is their first full length to use the Future Sound of London name exclusively but it is their SECOND album.

The 4 eps have been reprinted as one full length album, but they started as eps so they don't count as their 1st album. This is where the "Future Sound Of London" bandname was first used (as one of the 4 "different" bands on the eps).https://www.discogs.com/The-Future-Sound-Of-London-The-Pulse-EPs/release/1340421

Thanks for the references, but Earthbeat was released in 1992, whereas Accelerator was released in 1991.

A 5 star LP and a very important LP in the evolution of techno. 'Pulse State' rates as one of my favourite tracks ever committed to vinyl. I can easily loose myself in that 303 bass line and those 808 claps intertwined with some heavenly chords. I wish it lasted for 60 mins..... For me the highlight on a exemplary LP.For those looking to source the sample on 'Central Industrial' take a dive into Throbbing Gristle's '20 Jazz Funk Greats' from 1979. The track 'What A Day' has the riff you are familiar with over all these years

Global Progression
Just snagged a copy of this at my favorite local record store here in Oklahoma (Guestroom Records) and it sounds terrific! I'm going to need to get a vinyl sleeve for it though because the disc is simply put inside the thin cardboard sleeve and I don't like my records being stored that way. Otherwise I'm totally stoked to have this and the rarity is going to cause it to get into much higher prices probably. Snag this now if you can.

Coidor
I can understand when a repress tries to honour the original design, but why have the remaster on the one disc with 25 minutes of sound on each side?

Broadcaster
Horrible pressing. The disc is extremely thin. The size is a bit bigger so you can't listen to it on cheap turntables. Avoid this release.

Gholbirdred
There was 2 releases in 2016 (25 Anniversary Edition) - 180gram + bonus 7'' and this one. If I were you, I would try to find the 180gram one and stay away from this one. I had to use a rasp to smooth out the edges so it could fit on my turntable lol.

Binar
I'm little confused as I want to get this album but i want the original for my collection are you saying that there is first addition pressing out better then this sorry as i said I'm confused to what you've posted set me in right direction .....

Vuzahn
There is also reissue without the extra 7 inch on Jumpin Pumpin, got mine from Juno.co.uk for 15 GBP.

Nilarius
This is still for sale on FSOL Digital http://www.fsoldigital.com/product/accelerator-25th-anniversary-vinyl/don't over pay for this album

Of this album, Lifeforms, and Dead Cities, I would have to consider Accelerator to be my favorite. It's a tough choice, I'd give them all 5/5, but Accelerator is just so elegantly simple. Lifeforms and Dead Cities both consisted of a very dark, dystopian atmosphere, especially Dead Cities. Their strong suit was that they were able to place you into an entirely new, foreign setting. This album is more like transcending into another dimension, one that can't even be imagined, as it is completely abstract in nature. Techno at its core, while the other two are more ambient.

EXIBUZYW
one of my favorites.jealously guarded.

Calcium begs to be heard by everyone on the planet. Papua New Guinea became the worldwide underground hit. Generation Y'ers can probably recollect hearing this song at least once, although they may not know the title or author. FSOL are unlike trance or house which tends to sound spooky, angry, or happy. The sadness and precise placements of certain sounds gives the overall album a professional, timeless feel to it without the effect of cheesy and over-edited others. In future LP's FSOL become adventurous, leaving behind less interesting tunes in their wake. This is not to say that they still concoct some magnificent tracks per album. They just don't pack the levels of concentration that this one does. As with Orbital, Daft Punk, Leftfield, and Armand van Helden, it is a little disappointing that these musicians didn't attain the fame that they could have. With the mere injection of an unknown diva, these "underground" artists could have become pop icons. I feel that this album is the pinnacle of that era of underrated pop. Oh well...

greatest
"Pop icons" tend to be some of the biggest influences on music or history. Look no further than The Beatles and Michael Jackson to recognize this.

Lonesome Orange Kid
But why would you even want to be a pop icon? Just so you can end up on some ridiculous and heavily tampered with chart?

A classic of epic proportions. This LP was way, way ahead of its time and I can still listen to all the way through, Im sure partially due to the fact that I had it 91, which gives me a sense of nostalgia but also due to fact that this really is amazing stuff. Considering that a lot of these tracks were on previous EPs and predating the LP by a couple of years even, you cant help but be astounded. This was, and is in my top ten albums of all time and really should be owned by all, even if you only like Papua New Guinea. It is the full version too. That track alone never fails to send a shiver down the spine and set off feelings of all encapsulating joy. Show me one LP of electronic music from the same year that comes anywhere even slightly near to sniffing around its heels and ill eat my hat. A piece of electronica history that without any doubt paved the way for many followers. Warp records in 91 didnt even get near this! An absolute giant killer

Skunk Black
Perfectly said.I offered a comment but every word of this could have saved me the time. Cheers.

FSOL's debut album, Accelerator, opened a lot of windows for electronic music in 1991 when it was first released. Never before had an artist came along and fused electronica, trance and house in such a successful way. Accelerator was not my introduction to FSOL.. infact it was the very last album I bought of their's. This didn't take away from my listening experience though because each album they release is quite a bit different then the next and there isn't logical progression (usually) so there was nothing to be desired in the sound. This album contains their monster hit "Papua New Guinea" which even to this day still gets occasionally club play. The 2nd disc is actually the remix single for Papua New Guinea that was orginally released separate. A nice bonus but begins to sound a bit repitetive.

"Welcome to Central Industrial - we ARE the future!" FSOL are arguably one of the most influential acts to arise from the late 80's / early 90's electronic rave scene. This album is their signature moment and it set a standard that few have tried to equal with a debut album. Here FSOL proved that techno / trance / house was a serious, mature musical genre. The production was clean and deep and the music was much more varied than 4-4 beats for the pilled-up generation. It's difficult to imagine the electronic music scene without FSOL as they opened the door for other acts. Even now certain tracks on this album sound well ahead of the pack. Worth owning just for the seminal track 'Papua New Guinea' (if you don't have the CD single version) a piece that practically defines the early 90's. Also to be found here are 'Expander' and 'Moscow', two tracks that FSOL contributed to the soundtrack for WIPEOUT on the PlayStation. All the tracks have something to offer the post-Kraftwerk house generation and serious music fans should not be without this.

Zepavitta
Stunning beautiful electronic music. Very much on a mellow house tip but hugely inventive and nothing like average deep house. This is electronica par excellence. Obviously Papua New Guinea is the standout classic which has very mellow breakbeats & there is a great bonus disc to see a number of quality remixers give their interpretation of this electronic masterpiece. However many of the other tracks have 4/4 beats but their beauty is in the sonic electronic landscapes weaved around them. One of the great electronic dance albums of all time.

Memuro
What an amazing album, from start to end it is awesome and well ahead of its time. The only track that is sort of disappointing is "Moscow". That track, although it isn't bad, just got on my nerves after a while. Other than that, this album is a must have. Particualr faves of mine include the infamous "Papua New Guinea", "Calcium" and "While others cry".

Mr.jeka
An absolutely historical album Originally released in 1991 this album is essential for understand the development of the electronic music during the nineties. From all the aliases that Brian Dougans & Garry Cobain could have selected for this publishing, they creted this name that actually is the most wellknown: The Future Sound Of London. That was exactly what "Accelerator" supposed on 1991, nothing else and nothing less that the sound that will dominate on the next ten years at London City. For two persons that come from the Acid scene (Humanoid), published an album with breakbeats, trip hop, downtempo, ambient, house, techno and some drum & bass rythm structures was really absolutely visionary. Those were the cardinal points of the map in which London music (and electronic music in general) will be moving during the next years. Today maybe could sound not as visionary, but it have passed practly fifteen years. And it stills sounds actually! Absolutely great, and absolutely essential. And in this ten anyversary edition with a free bonus cd with "Papua New Guinea Mix Anthology". What else do you want?

The Apotheoses of Lacspor
Accelerator. If you don’t have this album, you don’t know anything about electronic music. It’s a classic through-and-through. Although it may sound slightly dated, it still stands head-and-shoulders above most techno albums today. With impressive range, from the moody “While Others Cry” and the trance-forerunner “Calcium” to the nu-industrial of “Central Industrial” and the storming “Moscow,” Accelerator still is a great listen. This re-release also includes 10 mixes of “Papua New Guinea,” a title that should inspire devotion among all fans of electronic music. Blue States does its usual downtempo magic on the track, while Simian makes it sound like the carnival from hell. Hybrid (of course) adds some hard breaks, while Satoshi Tomiie makes some dark house. Some good mixes, but do they hold up to the original? What do you think the answer is?

Qus
I am the first to comment of this album??? Incredible! I am absolutley stunned and confused. Simplistic, futuristic, dark, moody techno music with a distinctive sound. One of my favourite albums ever.
