The members of Future Sound of London enjoy a significance in electronic music that has as much to do with their extroverted technological savvy as their introverted music, both of which are represented on the greatest-hits collection, Teachings from the Electronic Brain.

FSOL's diversity becomes most apparent when experienced as a package.
