Product Description

Product Description

Fila Brazillia - A Touch of Cloth

Amazon.co.uk

Fila Brazillia have been honing their art for over 10 years, and this seventh studio album bears the mark of that experience. More uptempo than many of their previous outings, Touch of Cloth still carries that trademark quirkiness that the Hull-based funkateers have come to represent over the years. As usual with Fila albums, a definite style is difficult to ascertain, as their sounds range from funk to dub to soul to hip hop to broken beat to ambient--usually all in the same track. What makes Fila stand out is their knowledge of all kinds of music styles and their ability to weave it all into a cohesive whole. Starting with the confident kick of "The Bugs Will Bite", the album offers example after example of intriguing musical craftsmanship. There's the unassailable mellow funk feel of "Airlock Homes", the ambient expedition that is Spore, some animated optimism on the cheeky "Swann Todd" and straight-up quirk on tracks like "Ridden Pony" and the slamming "Pigsblood and Chalk". Once again, Fila rise to the challenge of making new and original music with a recording packed with so many ideas and influences that it manages to stay fresh and lively from start to finish.--Paul Sullivan

4.0 out of 5 stars Warm Sweet Coffee and Cinnamon Danish. 26 Sep 2002
By Chris
Format:Audio CD
This is the first Fila album I bought, and I admit that it took a couple of listens to get into. Disco,funk,and laid-back smoker's tunes are all here,and they're good ones too.It is most certainly not an album for the cheesy-dance minded out there, nor is it necessarily an album for those who want to tune in and drop out (though it can serve this purpose admirably!).It's quite difficult to come up with a "sounds like" for this one, but I would point out that there is an excellent balance between up tempo tracks, and more relaxed ones, so it won't have you nodding off half way through!
If anyone is tempted,give it a go, and if you're a DJ, I defy you not to use the first track at a stage when your audience needs a lift (provided they are intelligent enough to appreciate it).
In summary, I'd say this album is like warm sweet coffee accompanied by a cinnamon danish.It makes you feel nice in your tummy!
Cheers,
Chris

5.0 out of 5 stars In my opinion this is Fila Brazillias best album 4 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
Not only do I think that this is fila brazillia's best album, it is also one of the best albums that I have ever heard. I don't think there is a bad track on it and it is completely different to anything else you will listen to. It effortlessly blends electronica to other genres like folk, jazz and funk music. Like all of the best albums it takes a few listens to get the most out of it, but it is album that I still listen to regurly even though its a good 5 years old. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Music Lover? This is absolutely essential 24 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
FB's first 'proper band' album, after its largely 'electronica' predecessors. Fantastically self-assured and original - elements of jazz, reggae, funk and synth are all blended into this whirlwind concoction. Just check out track one (The Bugs Will Bite)- Frantic beat... strange vocal bursts... what sounds like a Pat Metheny sample... then after 2mins the bass player arrives at the studio and kicks off an epic funk workout. Inventive, fun, serious, innovative, exciting and (here's that word again) essential. Buy it. Play it. Love it. Forever.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best from Fila 19 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
As the title states I would not view this as the best album Fila have produced. This accolade would go to Maim that Tune. I feel there are too many weak tracks on here or perhaps some of them have dated too soon. That said there are some really good funky tracks with the typical fila stamp on them.
I will probably get slated for this review from true Fila fans but if you are new to them buy Maim that Tune first, and after that Brazilification.
