Boomkat Product Review:
"‘Music For A New Society’ is a fully re-mastered album of the long out of print 1982 classic album with three previously unreleased bonus tracks from the original multi-track recordings Library Of Force, Chinese Envoy and Thoughtless Kind ..
‘M:FANS’ is a radical new reworking of the 1982 masterpiece ‘Music For A New Society’. Back and forth ‘M:FANS’ goes, sampling the original while creating brand new soundscapes, giving Cale the opportunity for closure on one of the most testing eras of his life and a way to keep moving forward. In 1982, ‘Music For A New Society’ sounded exactly like its title: something futuristic, a new kind of songwriting exercise. In 2015, ‘M:FANS’ is exactly that too, full of electrical crackle and disturbed frequencies, a different kind of dystopian future awaits. John Cale forages on; it’s the only way he knows how.
‘Music For A New Society’ and ‘M:FANS’ is released as a double CD package featuring both albums."
