Remember the Stereo MC's?
Their top 20 hit single "Connected" featured on many mobile 'phone adverts and "Step It Up" their biggest selling hit single was huge - but that was way back in the early 1990's.
Since then, a few albums were released but Mr. Birch & Mr. Hallam failed to quite match the success of their #2 selling UK album "Connected".
That is until now....
Emporer's Nightingale is full of intelligent, catchy, mature man's dance songs, using up-to-date sounds, vocals, electronica, guitars, drums - great beats, memorable hooks, harmonies and floor filling anthems.
They appear to have moved on and are sounding exciting and fresh, less emphasis on the Rap / Hip-Hop side of things but still using plenty of sounds that tie in with those genres, so old fans should not be dissapointed.
"Boy" (feat. Jamie Cullum) has "hit" written all over it!
"Manner" is just so catchy too, a superb feel to it, soaring chorus backed by an infectious rythym & has the potential to hit high in the charts.
"Tales" is yet another track which shows that the Stereo MC's can still write hits for the discerning listener which will also pack many a dance floor!
Every time I listen to this album, a different track becomes my favourite - it's not just the 3 or 4 songs that immediately grab you, the others grow and grow.
It's definitely the time for you to either Connect or get re-Connected with the Stereo MC's. Emperor'S Nightingale
