Amorphous Androgynous (aka Future Sound Of London)
- The Isness (2002) (FLAC-EAC-CUE)
Future Sound Of London Biography by allmusic.com.
Biography by Sean Cooper
One year before Garry Cobain and Brian Dougans released Lifeforms, their breakthrough album as Future Sound of London, the duo recorded Tales of Ephidrena as Amorphous Androgynous. Charting an intriguing fusion of industrial techno with the free-form organic passages that would become the norm in ambient techno several years later, Tales of Ephidrena was the first hint of what was to become the trademark sound of FSOL.

The Isness album review from Discogs.com
Review by anthonymerrill
This is not like the usual electronic FSOL as we know them. \"The Isness\" was a total shock and surprise in musical direction turning \"Cosmic\" in to a music genre! AA have been inspired to create an album to near perfection which took 5 years to create. Influenced by everything \"cosmic\", from Prog Rock, Psychedelia to Folk with a spiritual type feel. AA even got Donovan to write them some folk poetry on their album! Everything about this album is different from their past works, from proper instruments, singing, and there are even gaps between songs! I love all the tracks on this album, but the one\'s that stand out are \"Divinity\" with charming feel good lyrics to the far out \"The Galaxial Pharmaceutical\". \"The Isness\" is an album which opens not only your mind but your heart aswell. Amazing!!
