Will Holland is one of the most talented and prolific artists in the world of alternative dance music today. Recording under various guises, Will first found acclaim as Quantic.

This sophomore full-length, Apricot Morning solidifies Holland's reputation, building upon the chilled foundations of his 2001 debut The Fifth Exotic with a body of tracks that deftly slides the soul and funk of his acclaimed Quantic Soul Orchestra project into the slow-motion down-tempo vibe characteristic of his earlier work. The opening title track lays out the sonic stall, with plentiful strings expanding into loping percussion, the click of a woodblock eventually giving way to some classy guitar riffery. Throw in a liberal scattering of afro beat, plenty of cheeky brass lines (both sampled and courtesy of sax wielding sister Lucy) and the resultant blend makes for some great home listening. Add a further dimension courtesy of the vocals of EQ, Bristol based hip hoppers Aspects and the wonderful Alice Russell--who gives it up like Carleen Anderson on the slick "Search the Heavens"--and Apricot Morning proves itself the most accomplished and ambitious album to date for Tru Thoughts. --Kingsley Marshall

Quantics second album has slowly grown on me, at first I wasn't impressed and if you don't own a Quantic album I'd still recommend buying the 5th Exotic first. However the more upbeat sound and the vocal tracks I've started to appreciate more and the title track and Trouble from the river are both excellent.

Sorry but... I was really disappointed with this after 'Fifth Exotic'. Apricot Morning is filled with inane unchanging happy beats which come nowhere near the depth of 'Fifth Exotic', which for me, was almost a work of genius. There are some really nice tunes on this CD, especially 'Trouble from the River', but the number of glowing five-star reviews is a bit much.

Holland combines elements of some of my favourite laid back, soulful producers to come up with an album that is, as one reviewer has already perfectly summarised, 'summer in a box'. I heard the funk of Mr Scruff, the soul and warmth of nightmares on wax and the jazztasticalness of St Germain and the laid back atmosphere of Red Snapper, yet it remains as individual as all those mentioned. Alice Russels vocals shine, especially on Sweet Calling. I heard a snippet of it whilst buying some shoes, asked the girl who it was and promptly went out and bought it. I was not let down. Each listen revealed a deeper layer of enjoyment until it has become one of my most prised Cds. Buy it, play it to people you love and appreciate and watch the smiles appear.

You have to be a bit aware these days when good bands release material fairly soon after their debut albums, and if you are into this kind of music then you might have been disappointed by Blue States latest effort, but with Quantic's second album in as many years, you will be blown away with how much the sound has come on.
The 5th Exotic is the slightly jazzier affair (and is my slightly preferred album of the two), but the soulful delights of Apricot Morning will leave you stunned from start to finish.
Having a few vocal tracks this time has certainly added a great deal to the overall feel of the album and Sweet Calling featuring Alice Russell can be left on permanent repeat without becoming annoying.
Far better than other stuff like it on the market at the mo, Nightmares On Wax beware, Quantic are here to stay.
Buy this and your speakers will love you for it.

Quantic were a recommendation from a friend of mine. Having never heard them before, I'll definitely be investing in their other stuff. Since I got it, everyone who has heard it has commented on it.
