4.0 out of 5 stars Electronic music for a party with close friends 13 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
We are a group of friends loving to listen electronic music in the shed of a female friend who is DJ. The song "irreplaceable" on this album is our summer 2003 song. I think that means that you won't disappointed with this album.
Have a try seriously.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funky Lowlives, The - Cartouche 24 Feb 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Funky Lowlives finally release their debut album, Cartouche, after a slew of great singles and remixes. And it's both exactly what I expected and nothing at all like what I expected. Sure, the Latin rhythms and Brazilian influences are there, but the album as a whole is also much more mellow than I had expected -- and that's not a bad thing. Clare Szembek's soft vocals on "Breathless" and "Irreplaceable" give those tracks a romanticism that's startling. A few tracks ("Urban Illusion" with its own low-key rap and the percussive workout "Cumagain") pitch the tempo up a bit, but more often than not, you're in for a mellow evening. And that's perfectly fine with me.

It is a geat album! Not homogeneous as regard of the mood of the songs but in essence this is a good album!
2.0 out of 5 stars Eh... 4 May 2008
By ItsRebec - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of the Funky Lowlives from Groove Salad. Their song "Stay" was very "Zero 7ish," and since I love Zero 7, I immediately purchased the entire CD. In retrospect, I wish I had listened to more of their songs before purchasing the entire CD. I love "Stay" and it is definitely in my top ten of all times, however, the rest of the CD left me wanting. As another reviewer wrote, they are definitely inconsistent, and that makes me sad. I am glad I bought "Stay," but I could have happily lived without the rest of it.
3.0 out of 5 stars Solid CD with a few stellar tracks. 14 Jan 2004
By bordersj2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of the Funky Lowlives through a few remixes on various Nu-Brazil compilations. Other than that, I'd only heard the track "Irreplaceable" on a compilation somewhere. Seeing this in the shop, something told me to pick this one up to see what they were really all about.
To my surprise, this was a pretty good release. It's a little tough to label them - to be honest, they remind me a little of Zero-7 with their more chilled tracks. Especially in "Breathless" and "Games We Play". The Funky Lowlives have a neat sort of electronic/nu-jazz sound on the tracks without vocals, and mix different effects and atmospheres into their sound. The most popish of their tracks is "Irreplaceable", and it has just the right kind of vibe to get you going.
In the end I would recommend this. I'm a little surprised that not more of the tracks from this CD were on different compilations, electronica/nu-jazz or chillout. As it stands I've seen mostly TFL remixes on different cd's instead of their own cuts. However some of the tracks certainly didn't get me going like "Berceuse", and the rap in "Urban Illusion" seems pretty cliche, so to be fair there are better nu-jazz cd's if that's what you're into. But for a solid and alternative mix, this is a nice pick-up.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Funky Lowlives live up to their name 14 Aug 2004
By silhouette_of_enchantment - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I listened to this album based on a recommendation. Again, I know musical tastes vary, but for me, this album was not what I'd hoped it would be. Like a previous reviewer said, there are a few good tracks on The Funky Lowlives Cartouche.

Personally, however, I prefer consistency: something the Funky Lowlives failed to do on this album. The few good tracks don't save the album as a whole. When the Funky Lowlives' songs are bad, they truly stink, thus living up to their name. Some of their hooks start off with the promise of evolving into a really nice, but then that promise is "snatched" away. The hooks into segue something unlistenable...as if the hooks themselves transformed into some megalithic Robeast monster (see Voltron, to know what I'm talking about with this reference.) On some of the other tracks, I found them stale and predictable.

I could only listen to this album once - and for me that was like listening to a person grate their fingernails against the chalkboard over and over. The "nice songs" were like "nice breaks" in between grates. The nice tracks enabled me to give this two stars instead of one.
