MOVEMENT IN STILL LIFE

Amazon.co.uk Review

Back in 1997, Brian 'BT' Transeau unleashed the widely acclaimed ESCM, his second album of melodic trance and progressive house cuts. Two years later BT has moved on, ditching much of the pounding trance in favour of a new, more progressive breakbeat sound. Roughly two thirds of the tracks on Movement In Still Life feature filthy breakbeats overlaid with Transeau's traditional lush, musical soundwashes; the resultant tracks are tough and dark, yet sublimely dreamy and very, very good. Many of these are collaborations with the likes of new school breaks boys Kevin Beeber and Adam Freeland. The remaining tracks mix breakbeat breakdowns with BT's more traditional melodic trance sound; they tend towards the wilfully euphoric, but mostly fail to match the dreamy brilliance of the Hybrid collaboration "Running Down The Way Up" or the dirty dancefloor grind of "Hip Hop Phenomenon". But where previous albums showed glimpses of brilliance amongst weak, progressive driftwood, Movement In Still Life is consistently tight: put simply, it is one of the best dance albums of 1999. --Matt Anniss

BT's been dropping some of the sweetest sounds this side of the Rio Grande since 1995. His 2-disc debut IMA (the 2-disc was the U.S. release) was a trancey journey that actually dabbled in, of all things, disco ('Loving you More (BT's Garden of Ima dub)'). Yet his mastery of the genre remained unrealized until 1996's ESCM (U.S. release) with the album's crowning glories 'Lullaby for Gaia', 'Solar Plexus', and 'Love peace and Grease'. Movement in still life is far, but not unwelcome, cry from the previous releases. Accented with an undeniable hip-hop influence (the U.K. release includes a song entitled 'The Hip-Hop Phenominon') which makes this one an instant club classic. 'Madskillz-Mic Chekka', which was featured on the plasylist for the PS2 game 'Gran Turismo 3', is a verbatim example of perfect Trip-Hop. 'Never Gonna Come Back Down', an edit version of which was included on the 'Gone in 60 seconds' soundtrack, had me using "Right on" gratuitously for a week. The title track re-mixes a seriously old-school hip-hop track, and 'Love on Haight Street' is a basic rap song that demands a remix. Other, more classically BT, songs like 'Dreaming' and 'Godspeed', which has been a club hit for years, are in disapointingly short supply, but the replacements are nothing to sneer at. 'Shame' is just plain cool.

The mark of a truly inspirational musician must surely be the ability to have his or her music classified as "un-classifiable". To his total credit BT is such an artist and this is such an album! Each track here reveals its secrets through a rich tapestry of awesome editing, superb mixing and blissful arrangements. All of which are underpined in a good dose of sheer passion for his craft. Highlights include "Satellite" an almost etherial rock anthem introducing real drums over beautiful guitar voical arrangement. Compare this to "Godspeed" and "Namasti" (not listed on this version for some reason) and you go from rock anthem to sheer mastery of what progressive dance music should be all about! The highlight for me (as in ALL his albums - hope you are listening BT!!) is when he mixes the effortless movement of synthisised drum and sequencers agianst sensual hypnotic female vocals. Combine this with a total understanding of building a song up to its peak and leaving you breathless as it hangs there and you have the track to end all tracks on this album - "running down the way up" Can this female singer here really only be a "session" player - She does not sing this song - thanks to BT's arrangement she "becomes" this song!
Anyone who does not like this album (or at least parts of it) is missing out on something special! Those who wish to explore more simply must buy ESCM - the opening track explains precisely what I mean about this genius being "unclassifiable". Im sorry but after BT and Way Out West everyone else is second division!

When i got this album i was initially disappointed. This is a VERY different album to his previous records. But once i'd listened to it a few times i found myself loving it. The bass guitar, the lyrics and the spirit which leaves you feeling great after listening to the record.
It is excellent and has the usual BT quality sound. BT has moved away from his old sound to prove to the journalists and reviewers that he can change his style. This is precisely what the album is about as BT moves through Trance, Bigbeat, Hip Hop and other genres in between.
The best bits of the album though are still pure BT with Mercury and Solace and Godspeed proving to be incredible.
This album is a must buy for any BT fan and the quality of the remixes goes to prove that even further. With remixes by Hybrid, Sasha and Paul Van Dyke you have right here a brilliant record.

BT come back with a superbly crafted 3rd album, I bought it on the day that it came out and I havn't stopped listening to it! The first 4 tracks take the Ima vibe and twist it a little, integrating other genres into BT's familiar flavour of progressive house and trance. Then the album flows into some of the most beautiful trance and progressive house that I ever heard, and well up there with the genre defining standards of ESCM. The highlights for me were: *I'll Go Dreaming *Running Down The Way Up *Namistai
There are also many colaborations on this album including ones with Paul Van Dyk, Hybrid, DJ RAP, Kevin Beeber and Adam Freedland. On balance this record has come up with the goods and is at least as good as the mighty ESCM, a brilliant piece of work.

This is the American version of BT's Movement in Still life album.It loses to an extent the epic proportions and all-out sonic attack of the Yellow UK edition. However, Bt's more measured approach with the green edition more than makes up for the omission of some tracks. Guitars play a larger part on this album, and is showcased to perfection on Never gonna come back down and Shame. These tracks while different in style and tempo to any previous BT work, serve to highlight the peerless variety of BT's work. Personally I think the UK edition is slightly better as it is almost 15 minutes longer but tihs is a superb album, from the best musician in the world.
