Format: Audio CD
16b delivers us his 2nd album, this time on Hooj Records. His first, Sounds From Another Room, is now a deleted deep house classic and this looks like it may even go the same way with Hooj having all sorts of difficulties at the moment.
Ever since teaming up with Deep Dish for a remix on his Falling single from his first album, Omid 16b has had a certain Deep Dish pump creep into his electronic jazz house sound. Punchier percussion, echoing claps, dark progressive moods ... in fact alot of his tracks and remixes have become classics for the likes of Digweed, Sasha, Deep Dish, Danny Howell (who always seems to have a place for him on his mix CDs), all the big guns essentially. So what does How To Live In 100 Years give us. The opener Inbetween Your Choice paints a wonderfully chilled electronic breakbeat picture more like 16b of old, and then moving into the club biggie Escape (Driving To Heaven) featuring Deep Dish's mix engineer Morel on vocals, you definately get the feeling that Omid has created an album for listening and chilling rather than going hands in the air crazy for. Escape has its echoing 16b housebeats replaced with a nice chilled yet pacy electro break, a nice touch PLUS breathing life into a track of old, kind of a 'for the album exclusive'. Keep On Changing Shape is more like the clubbier 16b that we're used to at the moment, this little deep electronic house groover is no doubt inspired by the Changing Shape EP on Hooj's Airtight label, nice and deep. De-Org Song keeps the same deep electronic house vibe going while Doubt adds some vocals into the mix which ends up sounding like US House gone electronic, nice if you've got fond memories of US house music of old.

Omid Nourizadeh, aka 16B is here with the long awaited long player on Hooj... and it doesn't disappoint. 12 beautifully produced electronic house tracks are on offer here from the sasha-esque sounding ambienty intro to lovely deep house, acid tinged progressive and vocal house with a number of guest vocalists including Morel. Fantastic album that you'll come back to, time and time again.

This is one of those rare, great, versatile albums that works in almost any situation. Moody enough to chill with, funky enough for driving, groovy enough for the dancefloor, you get the picture. It is almost impossible to catagorise, deep house or tech-house, who knows, who cares, what matters is it is of superb quality but then Omid has never let me down. A production carrying the 16b name is guaranteed excellence. If you want a point of reference then perhaps you ought to think in the region of Circulation's classic 'Colours' albums, yep, it's that good. If quality electronic music with an emotional aspect is your bag then this album needs to be in your collection along with the equally brilliant debut, 'Sounds From Another Room'.

Format: Audio CD
Now sometimes(or a lot as I do) you take risks on amazon with buying CD's which you have never heard off but go on either peoples recommendations OR as I do 'if you like this, you like this' section of amazon, and this album was a prime example...Having read up on it and seeing the list of DJ's with whom this man is associated I was expecting an awful lot and when it turned up I hurried to whirl it onto the CD player..I gave it a listen through and then another and then selected tracks and now although it is in the CD player..it is being playeed less and less...Its not to say that this album is particulary bad becuase it is and there is some good stuff on it..its just that it is neither a knock you back and say blimey I must phone my mates at once and get them to buy it...it is really an ineffectual album, which meandours along..
Buy this for an album where you want something to skip in and out of, but dont expect it to blow you away neither!

Splendid sophomore release 17 Feb. 2003
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ignore the editoral at the top of this page, this is 16b's second release, but don't even bother trying to find Sounds From Another Room, or his first singele, Voices In The Sky. That being said, the two albums blend incredibly well, and would make excellent back-to-back random playing CDs in a cd changer, but staying foucused on How to Live 100 Years...16B uses nearly 100 % vintage equiptment, for creating sounds. That's why this is as melodic and organic as an early 808 State record. The vocal tracks are well executed, and add a little sexyness to the overall track selection...I have a feeling this CD would play well with the Neverending Story on mute. I'd have to call this dreamy, deep tech-house...Production work is splendid and is somewhat reminicent of Arihl Brika or John Tejada, guys who have a similar, reverberant-but-sparse house sound

How to Hear 10,000 Sounds 21 Jan. 2003
By Donard Dwyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Omid Nourizadeh is a master of sounds! Each song has so much going on, but it all blends into a wondrous whole. The production is excellent with top flight musicianship. Unlike some of his other work, there are a number of vocal cuts here. Those who enjoyed his earlier sounds such as "A moment to stop," "TR mood," or "Falling" will want to add this to their collections. It's house music with brains, but it's moving as well and contemplative at times. I mean this as a high compliment. As for the songs, "De-org song" is great. It builds and changes with deep bass bubbling underneath synth-strings and syncopated beats - a hint of a Brazilian feel to this. "Doubt" is classic house music, again with groovy bass. "The room" borders on being full throttle techno. "Virus" is a vocal track that brings a smile to my face. A couple of shorter ambient tunes fill out the mix. I thoroughly enjoy this album.

One of the best Prog House Albums ever... 9 Jan. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Note worthy tracks are the infamous "Escape (Driving to Heaven)" and "Doubt"... but my favorite is "Inbetween Your Voices"... Don't know why.. I guess it the euphoric breakbeats with some highs and lows... almost soulful.... intense but calm... the ying and yang of the album.
Your house tracks are Keep On Changing Shape, De-Org Song, Doubt, The Room, and Behind The Face
Your breakbeat house tracks are Inbetween Your Choice, Escape (Driving To Heaven), and Virus... the rest are like really melodic chilled out tunes worth not missing out.
excellent deep progressive breakz album 29 Sept. 2012
By Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A masterpiece, one of my top10 favorites of all times, Omid Nourizadeh at his best. This was a golden era of deep progressive sound, with stars such as Deep Dish, Hernan Cattaneo and many others at their apogee, and I'll never forget those days. "How To Live 100 Years" is sampled in Omid's original progressive/trancy/deep sound and runs in breakz/chillout rhythms/ambience with stunning Morel's and other artists' vocals. Make sure you don't miss best tracks from this album which in my opinion are Inbetween Your Choice, Escape (though Omid Full Vocal Mix is even better than original version on this CD), Keep On Changing Shape, Doubt (though I prefer Instrumental version to vocal mix that you can find on this CD), Behind The Face and Colours Reprise (one of the most beautiful chillout trance accapellas ever, as rightfully pointed out below). Njoy!
nice production, few melodies, unmemorable, but nice "wallpaper" 17 April 2011
By howard yap - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I heard 16B's remix of a Natasha Atlas' song and it was phenomenal!
Deep, melodic, spacious.

How to Live 100 Years, HOWEVER, has the same production values,
but is pretty shallow and has no hooky melodies.
