Lush Full Power riff at the start, almost bordering on a bit to much, but still works, bit of female vocal, again almost to much but some how it all comes together really well?!? 2. Nice b-line, loadz of squelch factor, ethnic chanting stuff you know it makes sense. 3. electro sounding atmospheric intro, full power, guitar splash but not to much. 4. classic (if a track that young can be classic) Bamboo Forest track remixed to good use here, slightly more power than original, vocal fits well with rest of CD, I can see why they wanted to borrow it. Don't know why they cut back into vocal right at end makes it harder to mix (dj criticism only) 5. More thought put in to making this flow, loads of lush sounds, bit more intelligent\grown up for me. More of the female vox that characterise the CD, and a jazzy element - nice! 6. Flows from the speakers, love the riff that kicks in about 6:30mins electro!! Silly Sample stuff, good to confuse on the floor. 7. A Bouncy Remix of the track from Neurobiotic Neo-Robotics CD, sounds quite different apart from using that big riff, which works so well. 8. Funky dudes, you mean they can turn there hands to this too, like a remix of some funky latino acid house tune you heard in the 80's, quality horn's, good fun lets boogie. 9. Track 9 syndrome (thanx Pslightly) is usually present on Psy Albums, (oh god we have made 8 caning full-on tunes we had better put a chill out track on the end so show we are proper artists) but this is different, oozes quality, they could make an album full of this, although uses a few too many recognisable samples, I like it loadz and it fits with the rest of the album. How can an act so new have mastered so much!! In brief a more full power and diversable (is that a word) Bamboo Forest... Proper squelchy ethnic psy trance. An act to watch, you need this in your life! One of my fav artist albums for some time and I expect for some time to come, (and I buy loadz), Good to mix and listen to, all the way through, which is rare.
