4.0 out of 5 stars ac dc 7 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
this album has a dual nature .there are some really good tracks and there are some mediocre trakcs. now this should not come as a great surprise to those who have heard their last album 2 pages.meaning that first page was propably the most beautiful piece of recorded music this side of miles davis's sketches of spain.and second page full of mediocre drum and bass.that duality is more pronounced on creating patterns because there is only one cd and 13 tracks on it ,the really excellent tracks like ,time, les fleurs and others with live instruments are far superior to those with only programmend beats and stuff. but none the less the tracks that are good are very very good indeed .of the musicians on the record i especially love drummer luke parkhouse and bassist andy hamill, their palying lifts the music to breath taking hights. but alas i really do not like those tracks that are mainly produced by dego, sorry but i cant help it. all in all even with these misgivings i rate this album very higly. remember even diamonds have rough edges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 26 Feb 2002
Format:Audio CD
As the title suggests, brilliant, although it might take a little while for the ears to tune in to the harmonies / subtle intricacies. This music is most certainly not simplistic at the best of times, and if someone can appreciate more demanding music and is prepared to give it time, when it all comes together it really does. Different approach to '2 Pages' but yet with some similarities! Some of the techno tracks on this (Dego's creations) like especially '8' I find a bit bizarre and lacking in musicality, but on the whole most is superb. 'Time' with Ursula Rucker, 'Golden Solitude', 'Another Day', 'Les Fleur', many classic tracks within. Tuff, funky, soulful music with a very contemporary approach - looking behind and to the present musically to create future landscapes. Definitely not weak as some might suggest. I'm very happy with this, but expected no less of 4 Hero anyway!

5.0 out of 5 stars Marc & Dego triumph again........ 6 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you bought 'Two Pages' and loved it then don't bother reading any reviews just buy 'Creating Patterns' - you really won't regret it. For those who didn't, this release further highlights 4hero's ability to create beautiful soundscapes using both synthesizers and live instruments, including a creative use of strings that has become 4hero's trademark. Certain tracks appear to be heavily influenced by the production talents of Charles Stepney and his work for Cadet in the late sixties and early seventies (included here is a cover of Minnie Ripperton's classic 'Les Fleurs', if you can still find it try to find 4hero's interpretation of Rotary Connection's 'I am the black gold of the sun'; both originals were Stepney productions). Certain frustrations are vented by those who remember early 4hero releases as having a harder, more industrial sound and their recent work as being watered down versions of past glories. I have followed 4hero avidly since they released their Jacob's Optical Stairway project in the mid-nineties, which began to move away from the 'instant fix' club format of drum & bass and move towards the more intelligent side of electronic music production. I was initially aware of their earlier releases as 4hero (The Scorcher, Mr Kirk's nightmare etc...) and Manix as they struck a chord with my tendencies for hardcore raving in the late 80s & early 90s; fusing that sound with hip-hop beats (my first love). However, possibly due to my musical tastes maturing, this release and '2 Pages' really are masterpieces in my mind. I cannot understand why 4hero have not achieved more commercial success as they easily equal & better the Likes of Air, Groove Armada, Zero 7 etc. - maybe it's due to less aggressive marketing strategies.

This is not the right album if you're looking for classic drum n base. Continuing in the style of page one from Two Pages, this is all smoth jazz and laid backness with a heavy smattering of new age mysticism and alternative histories. All the talk of mother earth and the wisdom of the ancients can be a little hard to take, after all the perimeter of the the great pyramid at Giza isn't 10000 times the distance to the sun, it just isn't true, but that really doesn't matter. The tracks presented here are lightweight and joyful, and towards the end of the album when they start going all Tom Jones, some of the most energising music around. Whilst sylistically there has been almost no progression since page one, the songwritting itself is of a much higher quality and the excellent guest vocalists all make significant contributions. Some may bemoan the move away from drum n base, but there are still plenty of others working that seam, and the experimental sci-fi tunes of the second of the Two Pages can hardly be called essential listening (try Spring Heeled Jack for that style done much better). If 4 Hero have chilled out a bit and come over all hippy, so be it. This may well be jazzy musac, but if I was put on hold listening to this, I wouldn't complain.
