Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Kokopelli is a curious choice as the follow-up to Kosheen's debut album (Resist). Where, on Resist, they made plain their Bristol heritage with their emotive take on dance, here they let slip a previously unexpected affection for goth rock. Gone are the urgent breakbeats and surging choruses; replaced by metallic guitars, desolate melodies and smothering melancholy of the kind that Evanescence or Skin rejoice at. And while the leap from brooding dance to brooding metal isn't the biggest, in the process they've lost one of their greatest assets: the ability to make emotionally wrought songs out of drum & bass. Thankfully then, their other key feature, singer Sian Evans' haunting, folk-hued vocals, remain just as potent and affecting. More than equipped with the drama and longing needed to pull off their transformation, she brings alive "Wasting My Time"'s tech-metal, adds substance to the FM-radio thrust of single "All in Head" and breathes an air of malevolence into "Avalanche" and "Wish"'s murky Depeche Mode synths. So even if Kosheen aren't quite the unique entity they once were, they're still easy to pick out of the crowd. --Dan Gennoe

3.0 out of 5 stars mmm, not quite sure what to make of this....... 13 Aug 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I absoloutly loved Kosheens first album Resist and therefore bought Kokopelli. Kokopelli is nothing like Resist. I am not saying that this is neccessarily a bad thing as you do not want two albums that are the same but Kosheen seem to have totally changed their style of music. Where Resist was obviously very much influenced by drum and bass, Kokopelli is sort of a mixture of rock and trip hop and the drum and bass roots are barely noticeable. There is alot of guitar on this album (almost like someone learnt to pay the guitar since the last album and now feels they have to include it everywhere!!). Sian's voice is still fantastic though.
Where as Resist had really rememberable tracks such as Catch U and Hungry I feel there are not really any standout tracks here as they all sound pretty similar. There are no tracks really that you would find people dancing to as this album is more the type of music you would just listen to when you were feeling a bit depressed (it is not as uplifting/foot thumping as Resist, it is a lot darker). If I had to pick a track that I liked best it would probably be Avalanche
When I first heard Kokopelli I didn't like it at all as I was expecting more drum & bass sounds like from Resist. However after a few listens I actually quite like it now after accepting it for the type of music it is as all the tracks are well thought out and there is no 'filler'.
Overall if you liked the first single "All in my Head" (and guitar sounds) you will like Kokopelli, if not my advise is to give it a miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Explosive and rump-kicking 19 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
I am an American who heard "Resist" by chance. Unfortunately as is the case with many great UK acts, Kosheen were not promoted very well in the US (never mind the fact that the US has a shocking shortage of musical talent). Anyway, Kokopelli is a killer follow-up to Resist IMO. Yeah, the d&b sound has largely vanished, but that doesn't make these songs any less appealing. This band knows how to craft gripping and catchy melodies. And let's not forget Sian Evans singularly DEADLY vocals. She puts most American R&B singers to shame with her soulful and rich voice. This woman is seriously one of the best singers to hit the scene since Beth Gibbons. She is just amazing. Although Kokopelli is darker and more "crunchin'," it is hard not to be blown away by the powerful music and vocals. Kokopelli is at the top of my list for best CDs of 2003!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this Album! 23 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is truly a great album. Yeah it doesn't have the D+B style of "Resist" and many people may be disappointed with that, but nevertheless this is still worth buying. Heavy guitar riffs interchange with acidic sounds to create a dance/rock/trip hop fusion that is very pleasing on the ears and once again Sian's lyrics and vocal range are amazing!!! My personal favourites "Suzy May" and "Ages". I can't seem to get this album out of my car stereo....

5.0 out of 5 stars Kokopelli-kosheen continue to change 9 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
The eagerly anticipated follow up to Resist has been in the pipeline for a while now, but is the wait worth it? In a word, yes. Fans were promised "the dark edge of kosheen" in regards to the next LP and Kosheen have produced the goods. Sure there are happy "pop/rock" tracks, like first single All In My Head and Suzy May for example. But Kosheen have NOT sold out but have evolved.
The appeal of Kosheen for me is that there music is original, different, somewhat genre less and more importantly, good. Kokopelli is all of the above. Kosheen's smooth trademark sound is still as present today as it was in Resist the band's debut album.
Avid Drum and Bass fans may be disappointed that this record lacks the Drum and Bass content that Resist contained but each track still demonstrates the band's d n b influences. Tracks like "Swamp" for example, which has no vocal content stays true to Kosheen's d n b roots. As does Ages and Wish. But Kokopelli as a whole is a rockier album.
This is a natural progression for the band. Anyone who has seen them live would tell you that there strengths lie in acoustic rock. Also, tracks on Resist such as Hungry and Gone for example contained the rock guitar elements present on Kokopelli. Kosheen have never hidden their "rock" side, so the rock characteristics of this album shouldn't really come as surprise. Perhaps if the band had stuck to their more breakbeat sound they would have been criticised for re-hashing the same old-same old. So it makes more sense therefore to evolve their sound. The key to success after all is introducing new fresh ideas and adapting. This is what Kosheen seem to have done.
Sian's vocals are as strong and as haunting as ever and this LP illustrates the full diversity of her voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glad I didn't hear Resist 7 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
Having heard all the knockers who hate this because it's a complete change from Resist then I'm glad I didn't hear Resist. If I had I would never have listened to this great collection of songs. I heard a couple of tracks on Pandora and bought it on the strength of that. A great album with some fabulous vocals. If you like real music - buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Musical Excellence 21 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
Following on from their last album 'Resist' I didn't think that 'Kokopelli' would be able to live up to the superb standards of the first album. How wrong could I be, the truly superb vocals of South Wales rocker Sian Davies and the rest of Kosheen are back with their wonderful chillout sounds, if you loved the first album then this is truly worth a listen.
