I'd only heard a couple of tracks by Mount Kimbe before I bought this CD, but it was a massive surprise. It is a beautiful little album. If you're into anyone electronic from Aphex Twin to Zomby, it is highly recommended.

This is one of those albums where a track finishes and rather than getting more of the same, you're surprised by something totally different, that still manages to maintain the pace and flow of the album. It feels like a real record, not a collection of random singles. Songs take their time to blossom, melodies and rhythms cleverly flutter around before you fully get the picture. It manages to sound extremely organic and natural, yet it employs a lot of woozy.. even maybe funky bleeps and bloops warp-style.

Overall I would say this is a stunning album. Call it dubstep, garage, IDM or house, call it whatever, but it most definitely could not describe the clever orginal sound that these guys have cooked up with their beats. I look forward to when these guys get even better at their craft.

It's been said before, but Dubstep is a fascinating genre. And it's one that is fast losing a middle ground, as it splits between mainstream friendly acts like Skrillex who focus on 'drop' intensity and belligerent synth riffs, and the Post-Dubstep community - populated by acts like James Blake, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Mount Kimbie, who favour ambient loops and abstract rhythms over adrenaline pumping decimation filters. This album is a fantastic flagship for the latter, buttery with chords and honey-soaked samples oozing over intricate beats - constantly unfolding and evolving as it progresses.

Crooks and Lovers kicks off with Tunnelvision, featuring soft guitar strums, distant vocals and wonderfully off-kilter rhythms, giving a taste of what's to come. As the track fades away, chatter and ambient noise rises from the ether, and is soon joined a head nodding melody and beat combination reminiscent of 'chopped and screwed' hip-hop. This of course, is the arrival of the second track Would Know, which not only delights with soothing chords but also surprises with synth refrains which break up the action beautifully.

And so it goes on, a constant series of surprises, unexpected sounds and delicately assembled production - from the heart warming beats of Before I Move off, to the frantic agitation of Blind Night Errand. From the toe-tapping vibes of Adriatic, to the slow rocking of Ode to Bear, it is an acoustically dazzling reassertion of what Dubstep is. If you like lo-fi sounds mixed with warm reverb and crisp drum patterns then there really is no question, this is the album for you.

Slip off your blazer, smooth down your deck pants and get your finest show pony set for a gambol through Mount Kimbie's engrossing new Garden of Electrotainment. Holster that riding crop and let your charge leisurely lead you through this carefully cultivated landscape of audio cuttings, babbling bass lines and meandering electric licks. By turns playful, pulse-quickening and splendidly soporific, Crooks and Lovers may not be profound enough to entice you to pitch your tent, but it's an extremely pleasant place to take a stroll this summer.

prodction, but ultimately somewhat uninvolving; some if not most tracks feel if not a little half-hearted, then kind of unfinished.
Some good use of their sound palette, but can feel a little too clever and cold at times for me.
Look at product from such as Burial if you like a little more soul or emotion in your glitch/dubstep or whatever.
Had this for maybe a year, and although I'm fond of tracks like Carbonated and Mayor, this rarely gets played, so it's a 2.5/3 for me.

This deserves 5 stars.

It took a while to get into but if you persist you will be rewarded. Also check out the EP's.
