5-0 out of 5 stars Number 9- the best of the lot!
Being a Costes fan for four years and having collected the lot, I was rather apprehensive about the new installation after having read the reviews on this site. Nothing comes close to #4 and #5- or so I thought. #9 is everything that Costes should be. It starts in a rather nondescript fashion then luanches you into the tango lounges of Argentina, along the streets of london and into the clubs of Paris. Track 4 ("one")is almost ethereal in its repeated avalanche of beat.Here and there a hint of tango, rap, deep house and the sound that you are loitering in a moulin rouge green room.
5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!
Don't be swayed by those dumb reviews that belittle this album, it has to be one of the very best in the series! Just the right amount of soul and French chic in every track. There's nothing out there that has the personality and class of the Hotel Costes series. Roll on no 10!

2-0 out of 5 stars pretty boring
I look forward to the newest Hotel Costes each year because it usually has at least ONE song that really grabs me, that really sounds "new"--e.g., Organ Nights, Pt. 2 - Scott Grooves (#4) or Love Is Queen Omega - Zuco 103 (#8) or Leaving Monte Carlo - Physics (#5). (Obviously, I prefer upbeat.) This one is pretty much a dud. Usually there's a good mix of atmosphere/loungy stuff which segues into something fast or jazzy that has some new sound. This is is all very laid back. Guess I'll have to wait for #10 for something new. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good but it depends on what you want...
Thievery Corporation are very good... they can mix a song and, as most of these remixes show, almost any song, into something breathtakingly different and, when they're in the mood, they can produce their own stunningly innovative tracks. But above all, they know how to appeal to a market... which is, in this case, high quality "downbeat" music.
5-0 out of 5 stars A down tempo cd
I really like the cd, the music is very downtempo, the song "shiva" on the track I like and another song was bebel gilberto remix cada bejio, if you like down tempo music this is the cd for you!

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for Thievery and for Paris and SF under a groove albums
This collection showcases some of Thievery's remixes of back catalogue material like the Doors and Astrud Gilberto.

Stop the hating, folks! Just because the record doesn't match your preconceived notions of what you think the artist should do, doesn't mean you should lash out. Think of all the great musicians and other artists who were pilloried in their day for branching out in a new direction - only to have history vindicate their efforts! Think about it!

1-0 out of 5 stars pure rubbish...
I've been a fan of Dj Shadow from the very first album, and have followed him since then. I was super excited to see a new release from him, but upon seeing a few bad reviews, I had to investigate for myself. I sampled each track intently waiting for that wonderfully eclectic sound that Dj Shadow is so famous for... however I was never satisfied. This cd reminds me of a mix you might be handed after a rap concert. Its not worth going into analyzing each track, because its simply a waste of time. My only side 'comment' is that Dj Shadow has been in the game for so long that he probably tried something different, and it failed...just be patient and wait for the next (hopefully better) release.

4-0 out of 5 stars So it's not earlier Shadow...it's still a fine album
This album is quite a bit heavier with guest Hip Hop appearances than any of Shadow's previous work. I believe that explains all the negative reviews. Some Shadow fans simply aren't Hip Hop fans...sad as that may be (Q Tip was quite the nice suprise on this one). Those seeking the tripped out days of Entroducing won't find it here. That said, I still enjoy the hell out of this album. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that it didn't get me going quite enough for an immediate repeat listen; with the exception being Track 10...good stuff right there. My recommendation, take a sample listen to the tracks. Too "Hip Hop" for you?....then walk on, but I doubt that'll be the case. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Indeed one of the best Massive Attacks
Ok, this is trip hop at its best (and not pop like some reviewers called it).
5-0 out of 5 stars The best album ever!
Even better than DJ Shadows Private Press (which is the second best album ever).

5-0 out of 5 stars Massive Attack's Finest Hour
Easily this ecclectic group's best album, "Mezzanine" is really a strong testament to how well developed this band's sound became up to this point in their carreer. Although this album suffers a bit on the back end, the first 4 tracks (skipping the 5th track) and then the 6th track are probably the best rapid succession of trip-hop (with a darker, more organic edge) songs one could wish to hear. My only complaint is that the final five songs can almost be dismissed although to do so would probably not allow the first bunch of songs shine as much as they do. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Mike Patton does quality porn music?
Am trying to work out how to describe this record but I can't think of anything better than a genre based around how the soundtrack would be on a quality porn movie, not that I'd know, but it's sort of like a very slick, sexy grindy sound which is really seductive.Might sound silly but what he has acheived is a loungey sort of feel, with a very sexy sort of sound - lots of huge bass and beat noises and so on.Definitely not the sort of thing radio will flock to, but not a revisiting of the rock or heavier stuff he's done with FNM or Tomahawk etc...
4-0 out of 5 stars Mike Patton excellence
Definately some of Mike Patton's best work this side of Epic.I highly recommend this CD to those that like mixed work CD's and explorations of technique and electronica.For the price this CD really can't be beat.

4-0 out of 5 stars valid
One of my favorite films of all time is Peeping Tom. Michael Powell is one of the great directors of all time. It's funny that the closely named Mike Patton has used this name for his new project. It is a big collaboration with many people that Patton has never met. The first track "Five Seconds" is much like Faith No More and features Odd Nosdam. Other people who show up on this are Dan The Automator and Amon Tobin. I am a big Kool Keith fan. So the song "Getaway" reminds me a little of Black Elvis and Prodigy. Good stuff. I also like "Kill The DJ" with Massive Attack. It's a little like some stuff off of 100th Window. Other people who show up on this are Kid Koala, Bebel Gilberto, and even Norah Jones. It's a sort of record that shows who are Patton's friends. It's all pretty good, but unlike some of his recent material. It's a valid statement. ... Read more

I have loved this cd for many years and while I do not listen to it very often it is one of my favorites.It is the greatest cd to "get it on" to that I have ever heard.Try it and you will agree

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
I recently discovered Portishead's music and I am absolutely amazed!Beth Gibbons voice is almost heavenly in nature and the production throughout "Dummy" perfectly compliments her soothing vocals.While not a CD to listen to on a bright, sunny day, "Dummy" is one of my favorite CD's at the moment and it sets a wonderfully dark mood.This is trip - hop at its best!

4-0 out of 5 stars It's a trip.
It looks like it's all been said about this album by now. Few would argue that "Dummy" is the essential Portishead disc, and possibly the epitome of the genre. Smooth, creepy, sexy, and hypnotic. It definitely sets a mood. The production and beats are a perfect match to Beth's vocals. If there was a hit here it would be "Sour Times", but the entire disc holds up to that track, and some are much better I think. This album seems to have no equal, and if it did I suppose it would be Massive Attack's "Mezzanine". Just opinion of course. If you suspect you might like this, you won't. You'll love it. ...

Washington, D.C.'s Thievery Corporation purvey a very mellow, deliberately international mixture of sounds that might be called "lounge music"--not in the kitschy sense, but in the sense of a laid-back local bar (much like the one the duo happens to run) with no dance floor. Rob Garza and Eric Hilton are professed admirers of Brazilian music, and they're determined to inject as much warmth into electronic music as possible. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Finally
I finally got this album and it is exactly what I have been looking for: short tracks of relaxing trippy house. There are lots of middle eastern effects, which add to the music and rhythm of the album. It is just a joy to finally find a relaxing house album.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fun worldwide electroparty
The kind of album with many decent songs but few amazing ones, Mirror Conspiracy does fulfill on it's promise of one fluid world electronic mystique of an experience, if slightly generic and exploitive of it's supposed influences. Rationalizing aside, this still beats the beats of the majority slop passing for club music to these days.With enough variety to constitute Thievery's eclectic mix, this is good "chillout"(whatever people actually do when calling it that) music for fans already initiated into the Massive Attack legions of somewhat creative beat influenced work, neither overwhelming with innovation nor dulling with a lack thereof. One thing is certain, this unit could potentially have a sound that creates a far more compelling atmosphere then their chilled but less involving style more akin to this album's closer, but that is just my (way to serious for my own good) taste!

5-0 out of 5 stars Top 10 CD
The Mirror Conspiracy is another great blend of electronica, lounge, raga, afro-beat, latin-stylings and downright cool tunes. There are a lot of musical stylings going on. The World element really makes this album shine. I like the Jazzy element too, it reminds me a bit of "Air", "Spicehouse" and "Nuspirit Helsinki". If you're familiar with Thievery Corporation then you'll be familiar with their engrossing downbeat style and sound. If you're not familiar with Thievery Corporation - then you should be. There are a few points where the tracks jolt your ear because they don't blend into the album as well as the others. That said this cd is not one to miss. ... Read more

This is an amazing piece of work: haunting, memorable, captivating.It was in my CD for weeks last summer, couldn't take it out.I can't say the same for Fisherman's Wife though - if you're into acoustics, it will be right up your alley.It's definitely not in the same vein as LitToS.Try Daugher Darling or Baxter if you are looking for similar 'moods'.

4-0 out of 5 stars Iceland Rocks!
Love In The Time Of Science is an interesting mix of Emiliana Torrini's haunting voice and lyricism and Roland Orzabal's synth loving producing.I've heard Torrini compared to fellow Icelandic chanteuse, Bjork.Their voices sometimes do sound alike, but there the comparison ends.Where Bjork likes a heavy disco beat, Torrini prefers a jazzier, more ethereal sound and unexpected chord changes.Her cool, understated style is nicely complemented here by Orzabal's synthesizers.

Great compilation of songs from Massive Attack, all of their singles plus new never release songs. The videos are great and their new single 'live with me' is a great song (very sad video though). Includes new version/remix of 'I want you' with madonna. The combo is great you can own ALL of the videos, is a lot of fun to see the videos from blue lines until 100th window from the 90s all the way to the new single, the changes in the way they used to make music videos. There's even the first video with Tricky).

Her father may be the legendary Brazilian guitarist Joao Gilberto, but in 2000 daughter Bebel proved that she understands the bossa nova, too. There's a subtlety throughout this recording that makes Bebel's voice entrancing, as she re-creates the sensual essence of bossa nova before running with it into electronic territory toward the album's end.

Best album in my collection.Good job Bebel I'm looking forward to your next album.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Love It
I know little about Brazilian music, Bossa Nova or Latin music in general, but I really like this. This is the most beautiful non English speaking music I have ever heard. The perfect intro to contemporary Brazillian tunes. Bebel is relaxed jazz stuff with upbeat sounds, different from the everyday music you normally hear. I just finished reading a few of the negative reviews and I just don't understand them. This CD is one of the few that I own where all the songs are really great. This album brings together so many different musical styles, but it doesn't feel contrived or over produced. The elements and songs flow so smoothly, effortlessly. "August Day Song" is a sexy, song with deep Afro-Cuban beats and sounds like a hot summers day. My favorite CD at the moment.

Hip-hop confabulations don't come much more forward-thinking than this. Working from solid atomic principles, Deltron 3030 takes one producer, one MC, and one DJ and throws them beyond Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Oh snap! 3030 took hip-hop into a new level
Yo, this is where hip-hop should be now in the 2000's. Deltron advanced the game of the art. I didn't know hip-hop could come like this! I mean,Deltron 3030 sounds like it could be an ill soundtrack to some live move that really came out in thearters.3030 brings you into it's world on a serious tip, this sh#t is far from the hip-pop your going to hear on the radio and videos.The introduction and opening track to this album is like, "Oh sh#t we about to go somewhere, we about to get deep with this one!" And don't even really try to listen the lyrics because it's going to be droppin some sh#t! Plus Del's flow and delivery is sick with it! Automator's beats just,just come with it! And the scraching heard within the songs, makes me want to learn how to rock a turn table my dam self.This is not some 80's, 90's style of rap and don't get me wrong, I love 80's and 90's rap, T La Rock's It's Yours or Main Source's Snake Eye's come on now! But I didn't know rap could do this, could be advanced like this! I don't want to over do it, but this album just caught me off gard. I mean, this album takes you through a vission of the world/future world, drops knowlage and wisdom on you, gives you hip-hop in a form and style package that I never witness before. 3030 just coming at you on some new creative next level stuff.I got and heard Del's other albums, I know about the Hyrogliphics crew, but this Deltron 3030 is just it's own manafestation.Get this LP, you don't want to read about how much this album makes me feel good and exsited about hip-hop when it's done creatively. Games over! I'm stayin 'underground' where that sickness works to be created.Yall can have that hip-pop that's getting aired and played right now as your reading this home boy. Once you get that true sh#t into you, just like I felt when I heard hip-hop back for the first time in the 1980's, you can't feel the bull.Deltron 3030 brings this hip-hop art up!

4-0 out of 5 stars (9 out of 10) World Domination 101 via Computer
About a month ago, I was out in Los Angeles at this record shop and saw that this was labeled Out Of Print, and I immediately snatched this up in a heart beat. Well good news, it's not Out Of Print yet, because Amazon is still selling this at regular price, but they did stop producing copies of this album. So if you don't have this album and are sitting and debting on whether or not you sould buy or not, go ahead and buy, because if you wait too long the price is going to jump up.
5-0 out of 5 stars Perfection!
A concept album, futuristic hip hop, tight lyrical delivery, beats by one of the best in the biz, this album is perfection. Del never dissapoints, he is one of the most intelligent and positive emcees in the game and remains underground and true though he could be mainstream if he wanted to(he's that dope and versatile). His flow is one of the tightest and complex ever and none can match him. Dan the Automator runs the turntables along with Kid Koala, and they crafted classic yet futuristic and atmospheric and ambient beats that rival those past, present and future. Based in the distant pot appocalyptic future, Deltron 3030 is a story about an ex-mech soldier who grew wise to the government's corrupt ways(holding the people down and destroying relics of past freedom, music and funk) and formed the resistance against them in the year 3030 in a pursuit to restore funk and music to the peoples of the future. The album follows Del and his partner Automator on a journey through their lives in the resistance, escaping authorities through the gritty, run down futuristic streets of the city, roaming the appocalyptic wastelands and galaxies and planets in search of relics of the past and freedom from the corrupt government. They participate in the Fantabulous Rap extravaganza(a fierce intergalactic emcee battle), create viruses to bring down the world's computer dependant societies as well as spread messages of thinking for yourself and being wise to whats going on. An amazing album that I still listen to over and over and over. The lyrics are witty and chock full of sci-fi references and video game throwbacks and Del's lyrical delivery makes this album a MUST have. One of the best concept albums of all time and the best futuristic hip hop album ever made(rivaling anything by Kool Keith, Cannibal Ox, El-P, anyone!), and arguably one of the top 5 hip hop albums of our generation. If you haven't heard of Del or Dan the Automator or Kid Koala, they are reinventors of the game and you need to check out Deltron 3030!!! PERFECTION! Infectous rhymes and choruses, there is no flaw in this album. Virus, Breymor Collage, Time keeps on slippin, Turbulence, Positive Contact, Mastermind, Madness, Battlesong, Love story, Memory Loss, Things you can do and 3030 are all amazing tracks that deliver time and time again. Wait, thats every song on the album!!! The rest of the tracks can be classified as segues, Cleofis Randalf the Patriarc is a little ditty with lyrics and it is really tight. GET THIS NOW!!!! ...

Editorial Review

French duo Air's debut album is a superlatively happy collection of experimental disco-mood sound nestled between ambient soundscape and breathy pop. It's jazzy and melodic, and mostly laid-back, but not excessively so. There are a few shake-it, shake-it numbers, too, like the absurdly daft hit "Sexy Boy." It's snap your fingers and hang out (while reading) music or dance around sexy-slow with your mate music. It's also the perfect music to do your ironing or some other chore to; it's hypnotizing wallpaper music. It slips in and out of your consciousness, forcing you to move around with a relaxed smile before you even realize it. Oh, and contrary to sampler fashion, Nicolas Godin and Jean Benoit Dunckel played the instruments themselves. Bravo. Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Didn't take me to the moon
this album just really didn't do it for me. i looove loooove loooove looooooooove Zero 7 and there are many comparisons of Air to Zero 7 and vice versa. but Zero 7 just has a better execution of their music and just kinda has this magic that Air doesn't possess.
5-0 out of 5 stars The best CD I've ever heard OR owned in my life.
It's the CD that keeps on giving, and giving, and giving! I bought this CD 8 years ago, and it STILL sounds fresh and current, Air actually made a timeless record the likes of "OK Computer". Serious. Whenever I buy a new CD case for my car, it's AUTOMATIC to keep the first space open for "Moon Safari". Whether you're driving at night, chilling with your chick/guy, throwing a party, or just feeling reflective, you won't find a better album then "Moon Safari".

5-0 out of 5 stars woth it just for "La Femme D'Argent"
I bought this CD after hearing the tune "La Femme D'Argent" as the background music on a very funny youtube video. These guys make some awesome music with old-school electronic instruments - moog, vocorder, etc.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding Album!
I got this album about 2 years ago at a mall. What made me get this great album was after hering a song of a music channel playing a song titled:"Building Steam With A Grain of Salt". After hearing that awesome song, I instantly knew I had to get the cd. I listen to every song on the cd and all are very goog indeed. Right now, "Building Steam With a Grain of Salt", "What Does Your Soul Look Like" (Part 4), and "Midnight In A Perfect World". Im sure I left out a couple, but still, all of them are great. Recommendeed to anyone. Enjoy this great artifact.

This record is a perfect example of how a sampler can be used as a instrument to make a album. Midnight In A Perfect world is my favorite track on this album and is probably one of the 25 best songs written or composed in the 20th century. If you see this record missing from someone's collection or know someone who hasn't listened to it , you need to step up and turn them on to it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Remember When
Do you remember what you were doing when Princess Diana died? When the towers were hit?What is it about this CD that many seem to remember where they were when they first heard it, or first bought it.

Editorial Review

Blame Tricky and Portishead. They started this whole Bristol sound thing, with sleepy techno beats overshadowed by the chirrupy vocals of some slumberland chanteuse. And--just when you think the approach has lost all its steam, all its relevance--along comes a new outfit to make the music a few degrees sleepier, the singing a tad more dreamy. And singers don't come any dreamier than Skye Edwards, whose lissome trill infuses every track on this sophomore outing with a tranquil ennui. You don't jump around to Morcheeba numbers like "The Sea." You sit back and let them creep up on you, as steady as the tides. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars the best album from morcheeba
Who can you trust? is a great album. Big Calm is their best. Hands down. Compared to WCYT? this one is just more dynamic musically, and vocally. My favorite album in my whole collection and the most played on itunes. Morcheeba mastered this genre with Big Calm. Skye's voice is absolutely breathtaking like always from Blindfold (my favorite track) to Part of The Process (or as Skye sings it "It's all part of the Pro-cess," such a turn on!).
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums of this genre
I think this is the best album in this genre. Everything good about modern music is here. Good songs, interesting sounds, great production and a really good singer.Big Calm is calm, perfect for relaxing or whatever. You don't usually come across music this well rounded.Each track is unique and each track is recognizable and has it's own sound. One of the things that makes this cd so great is the blues style playing guitar, not something you hear in this type of music all the time. This album makes me feel like I am walking in a cloud.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff
Wow, I just love this CD. Sound blends are my new favorite thing with these types of bands. And, they give me all that I want. Great grooves and a great vocalist. Good relaxing, chill music and oh, those sound blends. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Album
This is my second album by Thievery Corporation, The Cosmic Game being the first. I think I like this album a bit more due the the more organic nature of the instrumentation here. "Facing East" is my favorite song on the album, as well as one of my favorite songs at the moment. The exotic Middle Eastern groove and instruments really make this song something very unique. The song "The Richest Man In Babylon" is a real gem in more of a soulful/jazzy/reggae kind of mood. The mix of cross cultures really brings this kind of music to life. "Resolution" has a cool dreamy atmosphere, the perfect way to end this album. I will explore more of their music soon.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow
I can't believe Schirmer's review is highlighted, this album is amazing!!Babylon has as many bold shifts in style, experimental, innovative melds of music, RICH instrumentation, interesting & relevant lyrics and great vocal work as a late Beatles album.Except there's lyrics not only in English, but French, Farsi and Spanish!!There's Indian, dub, Latin, jazzy, rap, instrumental, fast, slow, fun, reflective all on one album with a very cool political stance.This is SO original, seriously, who sounds like Thievery Corporation??This is one of the best albums of 2002, if not THE best (I'd put the Chemical Brother's Come With Us up there too).I feel this is Thievery, Inc.'s best album (I have them all, too), but that's a seperate argument.This is so much infinitely better than most of the totally wretched garbage that gets played on the radio/MTV these days.Also it's independently made, which is hard to hear these days as well, with total corporate control of the mainstream media.Which the group's name is a 'hip' take on.Speaking of, sure some of the songs sound 'hip,' that's a compliment, isn't it?
5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite albums at the moment
The thing I like best about this album is the exotic moods and grooves on this album. There is everything from Moroccan to African to Jamaican and a whole lot more. I can listen to this album with all of its different styles and never tire of it.Some people seem to think too many styles of music make a disjointed record, I disagree I think it keeps the music interesting. It's hard to believe only two guys made all this cool music. Emiliana Torrini's vocals add a nice sound to the tracks she appears on, but my favorites would have to be the more reggae type tracks.
