Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Tom Findlay and Andy Cato have steadily been dismantling their chill-out crown ever since the single "At The River" saw them float into coffee-table ubiquity. Lovebox finally stretches the duo's eclectic tastes beyond any semblance of continuity or restraint, finishing the job started on last year's Goodbye Country (Hello Nightclub).

Named after Groove Armada's bi-monthly London club night, the duo's fourth album captures the excitement and diversity of pace you would expect from a masterful DJ set. While the opening track "Purple Haze" doesn't have a sniff of Hendrix's majestic histrionics, it is certainly Groove Armada's most rock & roll moment to date. Neneh Cherry lends her sultry voice to the lusty funk-fuelled hip-hop of "Groove Is On" and the urban soul of "Think Twice", and "Remember", with its languorous beat and swirling effects, nods toward their down-beat prime.

Feisty dance-floor shakers are here in force though. "Madder", mixing the raps of MC M.A.D. with a pulsating bass and itchy guitar hook, kicks hard, and "The Final Shakedown" is an undiluted house anthem, albeit with a feisty ragga vocal. But one of the most surprising tracks is the rich, soul-drenched sophistication of "Hands of Time", a gorgeous reflection on love lost featuring the spine-tingling voice of Woodstock folk legend Richie Havens. Lovebox is a disarmingly eclectic album, its infectious, maverick, party spirit defying preconceptions. --Christopher Barrett

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Groove Armada album, another mixed bag 13 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
Yep another Groove Armada album and this is right on the same tracks the boys were steering down with Goodbye Country, Hello Nightclub. Injecting yet more musical styles with infectious beats and electronic ear-candy, this album steers even further away from chill-out/dance/electronica and some songs seem almost straight rock, funk, hip-hop and soul.
But like the previous album there seems such a mixture of real gems and songs that you'd quite easily leave behind on your trip to a desert island. Particular highlights are Groove Is On, a real head-nodding hip-hop tune, the down-beat beautiful Think Twice, the Beatles-A-Like Tuning In and the elegant tearful, packed full of the soulful voice of Richie Havens on Hands Of Time.
I had the pleasure of seeing Richie Havens play live at The Jazz Cafe, Camden two years ago and he blew my mind. Groove Armada's resurection of this excellent singer/guitarist/songwriter has produced some of the best moments of their last two albums. Lets have a whole GA/Richie Havens album guys!!
For all the great tunes, there are those duds such as Be Careful of What You Say that you'll be dying to skip over.
But hey, its like pizza, even bad Groove Armada is good. And there's some great stuff here, so if you liked the last one you'll want this one, if only to kick-back to the sound of Richie's voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, the 'Groove' is apparent 5 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All three of Groove Armada's previous albums have been heavily based around well-produced laid back tunage, but this is a step into the more upbeat. The album is still brilliantly produced, and the music high quality, but this is something that clubbers will find more easy to dance to.
Around three quarters of the tunes are deeply influenced by Chicago House or heavy breakbeats, bringing GA's reputation more into line with the quality live act that they really are.
Highlights of the album include Madder, a house/hip hop hybrid with spine-tingling lyrics from MC MAD, and a chorus you can't help but sing-a-long to, alongside Be Careful What You Say, a deep house track fused with stuttering breakbeats that warm the cockles of the heart.
This album, safe to say, has helped Andy Cato and Tom Findlay finally shake off their reputation as Coffee Table Fodder, and anybody who enjoys uptempo music with the slightest hint of chillout (See FC Kahuna), should be champing at the bit to buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius 21 Dec 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the best album Groove Armada have made, and it's one of the best dance albums of the past ten years. Really funky, with lots of lush textures but also a good deal of badass hip-hop, plus some great vocals from Redrat and Sunshine Anderson. "Madder" and "Easy" are the stand-out tracks, but there's maybe just one track that falls below excellence. Great for after hours vibing, or in the car, or to get a party started.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where did this come from? 7 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
I love my music, but recent buys have slid me towards the "chill out freak" end of the scale; as was probably the intention when I bought this.
From the off, this is a very different album to GA's repertoire (especially if you have followed their productions for the "Back to Mine" and "Another Late Night" series) and I love it. It has excellent range, wonderful sound and a feeling of evolvement; particularly if you are well versed in GA's previous outings.
It gets four because it's not an all time great but this is definitely one of the better albums around - raising the standards for modern music. I'm wondering how Fatboy Slim and company will be able to mix these into dance tracks however!
Watch out for Tracks five and eight; although not the fastest or funkiest they are beautiful tunes that mellow you out - good showing by Neneh Cherry too.

5.0 out of 5 stars grooving like a fool... 23 Dec 2002
By CherryB
Format:Audio CD
I can’t stop playing this album. I’ve been listening to it on my walkman and find myself grooving round town grinning like a fool. It’s that good. The Groove Armada lads have obviously been listening to the finest music the 70’s had to offer and have gone off on a retro one with an album crafted from some of the finest elements of the era. Coherently weaving disco, reggae, folk and rock, together with dubby housey vibes, into a big, kitsch, sparkly silver thing, “Lovebox” is interspersed with some beautiful soulful tracks, such as “Think Twice” and “Remember.” Sounds random in theory but it works spectacularly. I particularly love “Remember” because it features a sample of Sandy Denny’s vocals on a wicked Fairport Convention track that I thought nobody else under 50 had ever heard of…
I personally don’t think there is a bad track on this album. It occasionally is reminiscent of Vertigo, but is a much more eclectic album. Fans of their earlier stuff may not be so enamoured, but Groove Armada have evolved, and why not; musical stagnation is death, ask Status Quo…This album has been the high point of my music buying year; whack it in yer walkman and see if you get as many odd looks as I do…

5.0 out of 5 stars Grooving Again 4 Nov 2002
By "prixd"
Format:Audio CD
Having never been let down by Messrs Findlay and Cato on previous purchases, i assummed that this would be a safe bet as another cracker. And I haven't been let down. Again the varying styles the boys like to experiment with, are very much on show with their new creation. From funky, to chilled, to reggae, to housy, to a new rockier side that hasn't really been shown before, this album has the lot. Add to that some spanking vocals from the talent that is Neneh Cherry, another beauty with legendary Ritchie Havens, plus many other guests including M.A.D over a heavy rock lick! Thus proving that GA are now an established force in the music industry. This is an album that will remain in your player for a long time. If its not in your collection, your missing a good, good thing!!
