5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing forward-looking electonica 30 Sep 2013
By R.a.C
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Love this album, everyone should listen to it. Gold Panda is probably one of the most interesting artists in contemporary electronic music, and this record proves it. The sound is at times minimal, sparse soundscape, but more often a lavish festival of rhythm which borders on a kind of avante garde dance music. Highlights for me are Community and Brazil, but this whole album demonstrates that the best artists around today are not rehashing vintage styles but inventing things which are genuinely new and progressive. I suppose if I had only one word for this record it might be 'inventive'.

Lots of love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exotic Journeys 10 Jun 2013
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I declared an interest with Gold Panda's 2010 album 'Lucky Shiner'
and with the release of his new project 'Hall Of Where You Live' see
no good reason, as yet, to abandon him. Derwin Schlecker has turned
in another intriguing set here. There's an tantalizingly exotic quality
to Mr Panda's music. The beats, though solid and clearly intended to
make us dance, are dressed up in sparkling synth arrangements which
unite simple but effective melodic elements with cut-and-paste vocal
fragments to intriguing and absorbing effect. It's a right rich mix.

Although complex and densely-structured there is a light and airy quality
to many of the eleven compositions in the collection. (Imagine a warm breeze
blowing between palm trees on a tropical white sand beach and you're
somewhere close). Opening track 'Junk City II' and 'My Father In Hong Kong
1961' both contain sonorities suggestive of an Indonesian gamelan orchestra,
while 'Brazil' (an especially addictive invention) demonstrates an innate
understanding of the passionate physical energy underpinning Latin rhythms.
'The Most Liveable City', however, is in many ways the most enchanting piece;
a bubbling, chattering dreamscape touched gently by the spirit of drum-and-bass.

Mr Panda's fine album fully deserves our appreciation and applause.

Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Half... of a Comeback 12 Aug 2013
By Eric - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Gold Panda's second release offers many of the same tried and true elements that listeners fell in love with on Lucky Shiner, yet many of these musical design structures are the reasons for this album's full potential not being realized. The first half of the album is perhaps the most lively and entertaining, with fluttering bells and deep synth work - something most GP fans will readily enjoy. If only the same could be said for the second half. Misplaced, seemingly unnecessary samples, and cacophonous barrages swell in the last 4 or 5 songs on the album, and more often than not, will leave listeners feeling either underwhelmed, or simply annoyed enough to skip to the next song. Half shows a progression in GP's musical arsenal both stylistically and technically; with higher production values and more emphasis on beat oriented song structure, but it is not enough to overcome the great amount of hype he set up for himself after releasing Lucky Shiner. We can only hope that he learns from this and delivers on his next release.
5.0 out of 5 stars Really Like this Album 26 Jan 2014
By E. Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is really good album that you can play any time of day or night. You'll find yourself dancing to the fast pace but not manic grooves. There's plenty of Gold Panda's signature sounds such as electronic beat tracks overlaid with indian musical instruments. However, this album has inspirations from other cultures as well.

My favorite by far is "We Work Nights". This song has been my anthem while going to work to get my head right for another long day at the office. Then there's the song "Junk City". It sounds like it's inspired by hip hop booty music. I can imagine a dancer bouncing her junk to the beat on this one. You'll be mesmerized by "Brazil" which of course takes hints at Brazilian Samba.

The entire album is well worth the money.

I like this album. It has a good mix of sounds and a calming vibe to it. A good one to listen to while you relax.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great for studying/writing papers! 23 July 2014

This has become my go-to album for studying a writing term papers. Something about the rhythm keeps you alert and undistracted. It helped me think creatively. Also check out Lucky Shiner - same effect.
