A crazy experiment in music-industry manipulation, the KLF remain one of dance's more groundbreaking acts. Having already scored hits as the Jams and the Timelords, Bill Drummond and Jimi Cauty christened the KLF with Who Killed the Jams? Though they were originally considered part of England's acid-house scene, the KLF's high-energy mix of disco-diva vocals, rapping, breaks, and samples was truly club-friendly pop. The White Room contains three of the group's greatest moments, the top 10 hits "What Time Is Love?," "Last Train to Transcentral," and "3 A.M. Eternal." Amid their success, Drummond and Cauty retired from the music industry, deleting their back catalogue in the process. The White Room is a fitting (if somewhat short) epitaph that stands the test of time. Its futuristic musical themes are somewhat silly, but genuine musicianship makes the songs themselves quality fun. --Liisa Ladouceur

If you ran into James Cauthy & Bill Drummond today, they would probably tell you how much they hated the KLF (which stood for the Kopyright Liberation Front). After releasing "The History of the Jams a.k.a. the Timelords" LP on TVT (which features sample theivery that rivals the Beastie Boys' "Paul's Botique") and realising a #1 hit song ("Doctorin' the Tardis"), he two musical pranksters wanted to release a pop album, just to see how easy it is to win a #1 single. And you know what? They did just that.

If one listens to "the White Room" today, it's obvious that they were intentionally trying to make the most ridiculous album they could think up of. (Recall, they even released a book before this album's release entitled "The Manual: How to Make #1 Singles With the Least Amount of Effort"). This is a full-on yet masterfully constructed prank. Just listen to the lyrics of the version of "Justified & Ancient" that closes the LP (the one WITHOUT Tammy Wynette): "They're justified & they're ancient / And they know what time is love / Rockman, he's just made of bricks / and Kingboy loves his screws / The JAMS don't need no master plan / To do whatever, whatever they can / Oooh nah-nahnahnahnah" This is not high art by any means. Yet, the more one sees that it's a joke, the funnier the album gets.

But the music? For just about being 15 years old at this point, it holds up REMARKABLY well. Opening track "What Time is Love?", after the brief mellow chorus of "Justified & Ancient", a sample of MC5's "Kick Out the Jams" kicks in, and then full-on techno keyboards start up (which sounds like the theme that guys who made the "Mortal Kombat" theme blatantly stole from). It's a dance-floor grinder in the highest order, and harder than any of the songs on the album.

It's difficult to find something different and original in the dance scene, but the three dance tracks (What Time is Love, 3 AM Eternal, and Last Train to Trancentral) on this album are truly amazing, particularly considering that half of KLF's output consisted of stolen material (hence the name, Kopyright Liberation Front), plus the fact that this came out years ago. Those songs are the definition of stadium techno, songs that make a dance club seem not big enough to give them justice.
The quiter material should not be ignored, particularly the second half, more of an ambient/chill-out feel with some great lap steel and female vocals. The single included with the CD is an example of KLF's wacky creativity, bringing in country legend Tammy Wynette to provide vocals.
There's much myth and fiction that surrounds KLF, but this album is certainly their most solid work, and only frustrates the listener to no end thinking of the potential KLF held, had they not "left the music business". Damn and blast Bill & Jimmy for destroying the Black Room tapes...

If you will count the minutes on this album, you will discover that : A. Most of the album is not dance, but a very quiet one. B. The dance trax on this albums are probably the most revolutionary ever written.
After four years of releasing trax under strange names (Justified ancients of mu mu...), and after a not so successful career (except a single UK No 1 as Time Lords) the KLF really made it. They released "What time is love" - a shocking house/techno track that changed the world of dance music forever. After that, came four more hits, and it was over. The KLF were no more (well, not exactly..).
The first part of the album is the groundshaking one, with hits like "what time is love", "3 am eternal" (the most successful in the charts, but my less favorite) and their best track : "Last train to trancentral".
The second part is quiet, TOO quiet, and I must admit that I never listen to it (I think it's boring), but some may find it interesting. One track that I do want to talk about is the original version of "Justified and Ancients" that appears in it's original and lowbeat version here. This track has no chance to become a hit when you hear it in the album version, and yet it was one of their biggest when it was released with the vocals of Tammy Wiennet (hope I spelled that right).
A word about editions..I have the original UK edition of this album, and I have the US edition too (the one that Amazon sells). To my opinion, the US edition is a much better one. It contains the radio mixes of the singles (the original version of "Last train" in the UK edition is really not that hot), and it contains a bonus CD of "Justified and ancient" (the radio version).

Hey

the packaging is very missleading! I thought it was going to be two cds but then discovered that they added the single to JUSTIFIED AND ANCIENT onto the White Room Album which i thought was so cool! So i don't have to have two cds and keep trading.

I bought this cd for the JUSTIFIED & ANCIENT song but then found out that there are some great dance tunes along with some slow grooves. BUILD A FIRE is a great song to chill to. The other singles WHAT TIME IS LOVE?, 3 A.M. ETERNAL, LAST TRAIN TO TRANCENTRAL are very good and bring me back to the days in Bismarck. So if you remember when you first heard these song then they'll take you back!

My love though is JUSTIFIED & ANCIENT

STAND BY THE JAMS 7" (this is the radio edit and is only 3 min long)

STAND BY THE JAMS 12" (this is a longer version with a break that i think is very cool a guy comes on and explains about the Justified and ancient traveling in their ice cream van very cool)

ALL BOUND FOR MU MU LAND (this has Tammy singing the Chorus but Maxine Harvey sings the lyrics. This is 7 min long also. Very cool)

LET THEM EAT ICE CREAM (this is like a dub version it has the guitar form the song and the hype men talking but no words just the music)

All in all i love this cd!
