Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available

Mute presents a colored vinyl reissue of A Certain Ratio's mid-career highlight Force, the Manchester band's fifth album, originally released on Factory in 1986. It finds the perfect balance between the band's understated impulses and their desire to take it large. As a snapshot of where A Certain Ratio had ended up following their starker but still danceable earlier years, Force immediately pushed the band close to the success they always deserved, striving for new levels of musicality. Force mixes the robust funk grooves of single "Mickey Way" with downtempo tracks, as well as "Si Firmi O Grido," the percussive tour de force which often provides a reliable climax to their live shows. In addition to pin-sharp rhythms and grooves the album also displayed real consistency, and even a pop sensibility, courtesy of guest vocalist Corinne Drewery of Swing Out Sister. The album was also one of the first to utilize the brand new Akai S900 sampler. Force remains A Certain Ratio's purest moment.
