5.0 out of 5 stars Great new style 29 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD
Acoustic is a skilful reworking of selected tracks from the albums Tri-State, Group Therapy and Sirens of the Sea (under the OceanLab name) as well as a new track, Making Plans.

The switch to an acoustic and more orchestral sound has the effect of slowing the tempo of a lot of the tracks, giving greater focus and clarity to the lyrics and impressive vocal performances. Also, it’s likely this album will appeal to new fans who haven’t heard the trance originals.

The tracks that stood out the most included You Got to Go which was slow, chilled out with Zoë Johnston’s soothing voice and a piano motif, as well as switching into a downtempo section that reminded me of Zero 7 in their Simple Things era. Can’t Sleep works very well with flourishes of strings and a jazzy trumpet. Good for Me, perhaps my favourite track from Tri-State, is also included with the addition of guitar strumming and percussion. Love is Not Enough adds to the later stages of the album with a bit of a folky influence and warm sounds.

The acoustic approach is a worthwhile move and displays Above & Beyond’s skills in multiple genres. The depth of instrumentation and the live band add a more timeless feel to the tracks and fans of the originals will enjoy hearing their favourite tracks in a new way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking album 7 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had the rare pleasure of being at the Porchester Hall to watch this being recorded. It was a wonderful event, but what was most incredible was how some of the songs brought several audience members to tears. They were genuinely emotional performances by A&B, Zoe Johnston et al, and you can feel this when listening to this album. In any case it is fantastic to hear classic trance tracks re-arranged in this manner, I just wish more so-called 'trance' artists were brave enough to do the same.

Very few albums are of this calibre.

I've always loved A&B for their cutting edge tunes. This album is certainly in amongst my top 5 ever albums. A chill out twist to the boys trance/dance tunes. Amazing
