More Songs About Food and Revolutionary Art
by Carl Craig
Released: Jan 1997
Label: Planet E
Carl Craig proved techno's adaptability to long-players with Landcruising, and he did it again two years later with More Songs About Food and Revolutionary Art, confirming his own mastery of the form in the process. Anyone who still thinks electronic music is irredeemably "inexpressive" need only check the plaintive vibes of "Televised Green Smoke" or the tentative counterpoints of "Goodbye World" to realize techno's expressive potential. The downbeat "Red Lights" recalls Craig's work in Urban Tribe, and "Dominas" remains one of his most powerful, hypnotic club tracks.
