Advance is the second studio album by British electronic music duo LFO, released 29 January 1996 by Warp. The album peaked at number 44 on the UK Albums charts and was the final album to feature Gez Varley before he left the group shortly after its release. Advance was followed up with Sheath in 2003 with only contributions from Bell. After the release of their album Frequencies 1991, rumors of LFO's follow-up was discussed from time to time without any new material being released. LFO is the debut album by American pop group LFO. It was released on August 24, 1999 under Arista Records. It has sold over 2. 5 million copies worldwide and over 3 million singles. The album has two of the band's well known songs, Summer Girls and Girl on TV, which was featured on The Amanda Show. Can't Have You contains elements of The Glow of Love, written by Wayne Garfield, Mauro Malavasi and David Romani. Nearly legendary as the album-that-almost-never-happened, Advance was a full five years in the making, with hardly a peep of new material in between. The result isn't as essential as their debut, but growth and maturity are evident, particularly in the focus and depth of composition. The material flows nicely, with the heavier, more body-oriented material broken up by contemplative, atmospheric ambient interludes. Advance warning: Low frequencies.

Mature work during a time when techno (and me) just grown up. My favorite work of LFO when I was sliding from alternative music to Tekno. In my oppinion this is more kinda industrial techno music. There were a lot of creative artists (even Bowie) crossing boundaries in mid of 90s.

One of the best albums in electronic music of all time .. R.I.P Mark Bell
this is a great album.
LFO one of my favorites.
Until the year of the dissolution, in 1996, the group was composed of Gez Varley and Mark Bell. In 2003, Bell has reformed the project as one member after the name LFO.
The group is considered one of the pioneers of the bass-heavy techno music.
Probably the finest album of electronic music ever released. 'Frequencies' is nice too but this one has so much more depth to it. The Pioneers strikes back, so to speak, and they leave a permanent mark in the timeline, once again....
This is an great electronic album. Masterwork.
What an album, and what a step from "Frequencies".

From the electro-porno of "Tied Up"(this is what AIs listen to during sex) to the swirling ambience of "Ultra Schall" and the floor-filling techno stomping of "Shut Down", "Jason Voorhees" and "Kombat Drinking", Bell and Varley have really branched out from the tight acid-drenched electro-disco of their debut.

A shame this probably won't see a re-release; people now are really missing out. A classic through and through. If you find it, treasure it!
I dont see why everyone raves about the album "Frequencies," for this IS LFO's finest album. I listen to it frequently. There SHOULD be a reissue of this album.
Despite the nostalgic praise heaped on their debut, 'Advance' is the duo's finest hour, a subtle update on the beats n' bleeps of Warp's Artificial Intelligence concept.

Brash, bold, brave and beautiful, 'Advance' is timeless in its own mid-90s kinda way. 40 years ago, this is probably what people thought pop music of the future would sound like.
As both, Bell and Varley shifted towards solo projects and studio production in the mid-90s, 'Frequencies' and 'Advance' remain with other precious jewels of perfect electronic dance-music. Unlike house-influenced 'Frequencies', 'Advance' continues with more ambiental spaces, but to keep up the atmosphere, it is spiced alright with bombastic 'Tied Up', 'Shut Down' or 'Kombat Drinking', enough to get down the dancefloor for a start. Simply, this is the right measure, the perfect beat, a true masterpiece. Sadly most people will miss it. And most sadly, they will miss it in favour of some cheapest dance-trends. Whatever happened to revolutions?
