"In the late 80s and early 90s, U.C.P. were Sweden's majestic combined answer to The Stooges, Black Flag and the early freaked-out Pink Floyd." - David Fricke (Rolling Stone)

This 3rd LP is the beginning of Union Carbide morphing into what would become The Soundtrack of Our Lives, as three U.C.P members went on to form the original TSOOL incarnation.

Just read what a bloke from Melbourne had to say about THE GREATEST BAND EVER debut LP 'In The Air Tonight'. because well, he nails it.

"From Sweden hailed Union Carbide Productions and it's obvious to anyone with half a brain that these guys loved the Stooges.  They had the sound and they more than had the attitude to boot.  In some ways their sound, especially on the earlier songs on this album, sound too good to be true.  They certainly did their homework in 'imitating' that festering squall that made the Stooges such an awesome and ugly band.  The attitude here is one of absolute excess, fueled by whatever substance is going at the time.  I can very well understand the boredom that helps fuel the emotion that's on hand when you hear this great record." - James Jones

Originally released in 1991. "This third release was bound to disappoint fans of the outrageous Stooges/Beefheart-influenced band. The album swung through a wider variety of styles, including Stones-style boogie rock ('Be Myself Again,' 'Baritone Street,' 'Circles'), melancholy ballads ('Golden Age,' 'Can't Slow Down'), and one genuine psychedelic epic ('Coda'). Taken on its own terms, the 1991 outing is a masterpiece of dissolution, disappointment, and loss. Chiming Byrds-style acoustic guitars, tambourines, and piano underscored the evolution toward a cleaner production sound. The band's playing never sounded more assured, although some detractors would claim this was a detrimental point. From Influence to Ignorance displayed new maturity in Union Carbide Productions' growth as a recording and performing entity. Additionally, it represented a personal watershed for Ebbot Lundberg as a singer, lyricist, and producer." --All Music Guide
