Product Description


Following a tide of critical acclaim and numerous appearances on every other chill-out compilation since records began, Groove Armada's Goodbye Country (Hello Nightclub) has an awful lot to live up to. Vertigo released two years previously was a phenomenal success both critically and commercially spawning hits like "If Everybody Looked the Same" and the mighty "At the River". Having found their niche of downbeat anthems that amble along smoothly, Groove Armada are exploring their style further. The opening track "Suntoucher" is a slow-burning dub plate featuring Jeru The Damaja which breaks into a supercool horn riff, a fantastic start to the album but at six and a half minutes does drag on a bit. Even the slightly more up-tempo numbers like first single "Superstylin" or "Fogma" don't rush into anything too hectic, letting it build slowly before the bass hook and drums kick in with a lukewarm impact. Goodbye Country is another triumph for Groove Armada in musical terms with every track as good as the one before, but with so little of the quirky house for which they are equally accomplished it seems a shame that they chose to veer so strongly in the relaxed, downbeat direction. --David Trueman

5.0 out of 5 stars best Album I've bought in years 23 May 2002
Format:Audio CD
Tracks like Superstylin, My friend and Suntoucher provide a chirpy, funky nod to the charts, but it's with tracks such as Edge Hill and Little by Little that the real quality lies. Granted, they may have 2-3 minute intros but these only serve to heighten your awareness for the sheer musical joy that follows: The rich, soothing and, frankly, life-affirming vocals of Little by Little could bring a jumper off a ledge and back through the window whilst the soaring strings of Edge Hill take the listener on a warm, stimulating, emotional journey and eventually leaves him/her in a better place than where they started from. I've had these tracks playing whilst friends have been round and without exception each one has asked who they were by and how come they hadn't heard them before. This is seriously good, intelligent stuff and shouldn't just be wasted on chill-out fanatics.

5.0 out of 5 stars LISTEN to this album!!!! WONDERFUL 7 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have all the albums by GA and this is definitely the best yet. No, there isn't an "At the River" but there is so much more! The first time through you will probably think OK but listen to it again and again and you will pick up something different each time, it really does grow on you. If you can pick up the depth in each track thats what I have noticed, there is so much in there.

I love the first track, Suntoucher great bass line and it really gets you in the mood for the rest of the album. Superstylin is a funky number great for the clubbers. My friend is a mellow track with a great vocal from Celetia Martin. My favourites are Lazy Moon and Edge Hill, I know they are long tracks but my are they worth waiting for, those strings just get to me. I think GA have matured their style and have come a long way since their debut Northern Star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite Groove from GA 16 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album, almost definitely their best yet. Great rhythms, nice vocals. Raps are not normally my thing, but on this CD they compliment and enhance the groove. Highlights: Suntoucher, fogma, my friend, raisin' the stakes....... Go and buy this now, and play as loud as you can, with immense bass in a darkened room!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two of my ALL TIME FAVOURITE tracks 3 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
SUPERSTYLIN makes me move my mind, body and soul. I love it soooooo much. Sometimes, can you feel the pressure just unwind, sometimes........ great! I must have listened to this track a hundred times, and I know I'll never get bored of it. Fantastic dance track, full of energy and build up and a great tune too. Can't beat a bit of: climb into position to synchronise things.
2nd favourite track on the album is SUNTOUCHER. Should be eaten with a tofu sandwich and cabbage. But that's cos you know this track ...... (wait for it)..... is not the average. Fantastic music with strong bass, different tempos and great vocals, all blending smoothly.
The music from all GA's albums is original and inspiring, and both Goodbye Country (Hello Nightclub) and Vertigo live in my car, so they spin most weeks. Long may Andy and Tom continue to create magic.
If I had to take two CD's to a desert island, it would be GA's Goodbye Country and Zero 7's Simple Things. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Boring but true...... 20 Jan 2005
By Stavros
Format:Audio CD
I appreciate there is a real tendency to have endless glowing reviews on amazon and that people rarely post negative feedback. Well, i'm afraid I am going down the glowing praise route. This album is absolutely supurb, without a doubt in the Top 5 of my entire collection and worthy of every star I have given it.
It has everything. The chilled out blissful tunes that made GA such a big hit with their first album Vertigo and the stomping floor fillers that get played out and about all the time. critics claim a good album must deliver from start to finish and take you on some sort of a journey. this album does exactly that, from the hip hop tinged Suntoucher via the upbeat Superstylin' and Fogma (which is an immensely dirty fat tune!) which both raise the pulse somewhat, the haunting but beautiful Edgehill (try this LOUD on headphones!) to what is a real hidden gem, the dub mix of Tuning In. Now this tune features in GA's later album 'Lovebox' in its vocal entirity and isn't nearly as good as the dub. It is so melodic and deep and again slightly haunting but so so gorgeous. the vocals are so very sweet and just pull you along with a deep powerful slow bassline. It's very basic and very simple but it really works.
this album is relatively old now but has not lost one speck of brilliance. It's fair to say i love GA and have all their albums but the others do not come close to this. It is such a treat. My girlfriend had this album and dismissed it after a couple of listens so I made her try it again and needless to say she absolutely loves it now!!
An essential in any electronic music lovers library.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Wondefully Groove Armada 5 May 2002
Format:Audio CD
Without doubt the best album of last year. This album starts of great and finishes great; there is not one weak track on it. Suntoucher, Superstylin', Little By Little, Fogma, My Friend, Raisin' The Stakes and Tuning In - Dub Mix (not The Incredible Bongo Man as it says on the track listing) the best tracks. But with a track like Edge Hill you have to sit up and take notice, probably the best track that has been made in the last 20 years, simply awesome. I am not really sure that you can better this album, and I feel that it is better then Vertigo. If you are thinking of getting it then hurry up and get it and give Andy and Tom the credit they deserve
