5.0 out of 5 stars The Grooves go back to their roots 10 April 2000
Format:Audio CD
What a surprise! A pleasant one, I might add. Pulling in every style under the sun, the Groove Armada duo deliver a fine selection of blissed-out summery grooves. One can immediately see where they draw their inspiration from, and anyone who has listened to 'Northern Star' and 'Vertigo' will be pleased to get such an insight. The beach towel is laid out in fine style with Groove Armada's fine remix of A Tribe Called Quest's classic "Description of a Fool", followed by the sublime tones of Barry White. As the mellow chill slides along lazily, we up the tempo slightly to Sir Raymond Mang's now-classic "Number 1", a much underrated track coming out of the Idjut Boys's Noid stable. Stand up and salute this man, he has a real talent. The Al Green/Mica Paris section may distract a little from the general landscape, but things finally come to a fitting end with Chaser and Tears for Fears, the latter perhaps surprisingly appearing to roll up the beach towel and go home for a sangria. All in all, a well-thought out, touching and often groovy selection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mmmmmm, Nice! 6 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Yet again Groove Armada have proved they can live with the best when it comes to Chill Out albums. A superb selection of relaxing tracks, melted together beautifully. From the torrid Al Green to the wistful Tears for Fears. Great!

5.0 out of 5 stars top mix 22 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
One of my favourite 'Back to Mine' selections. Rate it up there with the Faithless, Dave Seaman and Talvin Singh selections. It's very eclectic and mellow and it's one I play over and over. A truly top mix

5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with the best 18 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you are looking for a selection of cool, groovy tracks then look no further than this. Being a back to mine selection of the highest order ensures that this classic album never dates.Although produced in 2000 I have only recently purchased it and it still sounds fresh and new now.
If you are familiar with other Groove Armada whether their own albums or compilations you will be aware of the outstanding quality of the tracks and the special magic they bring to their output. This is no exception.
From the outset GA place a relatively contemporary track by a Tribe called Quest and layer it into the Love Walrus himself, Barry White. GA then continue to fold in quality track into quality track encompassing exceptional instrumentals alongside quality vocals, they even manage to sneak in a Tears for Fears track.
This certainly ranks alongside Everything but the Girl and MJ Cole as best in the Back to Mine series. Quality!!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just remove your coat & relax... 29 Dec 2000
By Borat
Format:Audio CD
So chilled, they make us think Tears for Fears are cool. From Raymond Mang's deservedly titled "No.1" to the largely ignored British rap of Roots Manuva, the Armada deliver the perfect soundtrack to a winters night in front of the fire. With Barry White crooning away, what woman could have resisted your advances by the time Al Green's telling her to light his fire? Superb.

Groove armada deliver one of the best mix albums of the last few years. Taking you back to there's with an electic mix of friends delivering smooth funky tunes, perfect for that summer vibe. Along for the ride are the love walrus himself Mr Barry White, the rockin reverand Al Green who delivers the silkest version ever of the doors light my fire. Strangly Tears for fears turn up to finish the night off, but do so in style. The seminal BBG show there faces too, accompanied by A tribe called quest who deliver the funktastic' description of a Fool' aided by an impressive remix by the armada boys themselves. Stand out apperance at the armada house, has to be Sir Ray Mang with the epic 'Encounters'. Quite a night, i'll go back anytime!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ecletic Mix! 31 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought Vertigo on the strength of At The River and was pleasantly shocked at how good it was. Back to Mine is a collection of superb tracks most of which I didn't know but trusted GA's judgement. I like the tracks immensely and the subtle mixing blends it altogether beautifully. If you don't have Vertigo buy it first and then buy Back To Mine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful - living in the past, as usual
I bought and liked a couple of GA's singles so I risked this album, seeing as I read good reviews about it. I bought it, played most of it and slung it straight in the bin. Read more
