4.0 out of 5 stars It grows! 10 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
Being a huge fan of The Magnificent Tree after finding it in a friend's collection I was eager to find more of Hooverphonic's stuff, when I listed to Blue Wonder Powder Milk for the first time I wasn't sure if it hit the same chord but it has grown and grown and the vocal's are just as unique and enjoyable. The Magnificent Tree is still my preferred CD but you shouldn't be too disapointed if you add this to your collection too.

Think Portishead. Think Single Gun Theory. Think Mono, think Goldfrapp, think wonderful, moody music... It's hard to give Hooverphonic a genre but we'll leave it at trip-hop although it is more dance-tinged than Portishead. Listen and dance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Title.... 30 Jun 2002
By Clarissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As you listen to all three Hooverphonic albums you will hear a difference in sound which seperates each one in their own distinct way but I think that BLUE WONDER POWER MILK is their most mature album to date, thus deserving a ton of recognition. And despite the fact that I strongly feel that their first album, A NEW STEREOPHONIC SOUND SPECTACULAR was a bit disappointing just because of all the excess hype, their third album THE MAGNIFICENT TREE seemed to smooth out all the uneven edges, despite the fact that it took an unexpected turn toward the dreamy yet very mainstream pop scene. BLUE WONDER POWER MILK, however, seems to sit perfect in the middle as their most impressive work yet. I also think it wise of them to have replaced the lead singer Liesje Sadonius with that of Geike Arnaert. She just seems to have more feeling to her voice which adds an unexpected warmth to the cool, chilled-out electro beats amidst the smooth string arrangments that rise with the momentum of the songs. "Renaissance Affair" and "Battersea" are prime-examples of this while songs like "One Way Ride" and "This Strange Effect" have more of a dream-pop sound that'll remind you of groups like Mandalay, Olive, Morcheeba and Joydrop. Even Alex Callier lends his rapturous male vocals on songs like "Dictionary" and "Electro Shock Faders" which elevates the album to a haunting effect. I also really dig "Eden" (which my favorite pop singer, Sarah Brightman, did a cover of) and the cold "Magenta" with its mystique speak-singing that grips the soul with an icy chill that's refreshing and new...
This is by far the best Hooverphonic album so buy it without a thought and enjoy...
This is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Trip Hop, but definitely a trip 16 May 2000
By Y. Ronnen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I guess that this album is classified as a "Trip Hop" album, and Trip Hop lovers will probably buy it. I'm a trip hop lover, and I bought this album of course, and found out it is not trip hop. Still, it's a fanatastic album.
Trip Hop uses the drums and sinths of Hip Hop to make sound more like ambient. This album doesn't have this sound. It doesn't sound like Portishead, Massive of Mono. It sounds like Hooverphonic : a sound that is almost pure acustic (they use orchestra) but still will be a favorite of electronic sound lovers.
The album begins quite fast, with a strange drum & bass beat over slow string tune ("Battersea") and kind of slowing down until a noisy break in the middle ("Lung") and then goes down to slower and a very darker sound.
Three tracks in this album have a male vocal. That's an interesting thing, because most of the bands usually have one leading vocal, and it adds to the diversity of sounds.
Pay attention to "Club Montepulciano" and "This Strange Effect", which are, for my opinion, the best tunes in this album, listen to the voice of the singer almost breaking every glass in the house, and be hypnotized - like I was.

By I. Inc - Published on Amazon.com

I loved this album. The vocals, sounds, music, etc, are very original and unique.. If you enjoy this type of music, I recommend these artists: Portishead, Statik Sound System (hard to find), Single Cell Orchestra, Mono, Cranes (early cranes).. Let me know if you found my recommendations helpful!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great CD 7 Dec 1999
By J. Jewell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I had never heard of this band until a few months ago, when 2 of this album's tunes were featured on the tv show "La Femme Nikita." Now I am so glad I bought this CD! "Eden" and "This Strange Effect" are both great songs, but so is the rest of the album, especially "Club Montepuciano" and "Magenta," just to name a few. Every time I play this CD I find that there is something else I like about it. A lot of people won't buy CDs from non-mainstream bands because they are afraid that they won't like the entire album. I used to be guilty of that myself! I am so glad to finally get tuned in to some great music and found out what I have been missing all these years. Take my word for it--you will love this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Beautiful Album! 14 April 2002
By Jeff Steinberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Wow!!! What a beautiful album! It starts out simply with a string section playing a chord progression in "Battersea". Then, a fast trip hop rhythm enters, but it sounds a little awkward with the slow progression of the strings. Finally, the vocals come in and I am blown away. The voice, heavily layered with echoes, blends in perfectly with the other instruments and makes this song incredible.
The rest of the album keeps up the pace of the first song and blends together beautifully. The weak voice of the female singer and the softness of the pads and strings allow for a smooth, pleasant sound. Weak female voices are much too popular in electronica and are rarely used well, but like Portishead, Hooverphonic knows how to use the vocals.
One of the problems with the album is that Hooverphonic relied too heavily on strings and ambience to make a good sound, but hey, if it works, it works. Even so, there are songs like "Electro Shock Faders", which seem to be nothing special at all, so they layer it heavily with strings. There are also songs where the strings are indispensible, like "Battersea" and "Eden". Another gripe with the album is that the female vocals do not fit the music well in a few songs, like in "Lung" and "This Strange Effect".
However, it does work for a majority of the songs. These small problems do not detract significantly from the album. The fact
is that this album is one of my favorite albums to listen to. It is not terribly diverse, but the music is great. My rating is actually a 4.5 because this is not a perfect album, but I can guarantee that you will like it if you like the cool grooves of artists like Portishead and Morcheeba.
