BBC Review

4hero are that rare sort of group whose career refuses to be summed up in the narrow bounds of a 300 word review. Suffice to say, they were there at the birth of Jungle and have played the role of the scene's eccentric uncles ever since, following their muses under a slew of aliases. Though they've been busy with other projects, this is their first new album since 2001's Creating Patterns. Where that album alternated classic tunes with driving left-field instrumentals, Play With The Changes is much more straightforward.

The album bursts into life with a lightning break before acquiring strings, horns, harp and Carina Anderson, familiar to 4hero fans from the previous album's standout cover version, 'Les Fleur'. 'Morning Child' is best described as anthemic soul. 'Take My Time' continues in like fashion with a slightly more electronic, funkier edge. 'Sink Or Swim' is all Fender Rhodes and a stop-start broken beat rhythm. Two exceptions to the album's silky flow come towards the end with 'Why Don't You Talk', a track that sounds surprisingly like jazz rock and the brief guitar-led finale, 'Dedication To The Horse'.

Almost every track has at least one guest, including the likes of 70s superstar songwriter/producer Larry Mizell, broken beat musicians Bembe Segue and Kaidi Tatham, and street poet Ursula Rucker. The latter's mother earth focus signals a rare moment of unease and echoes her lyrical contribution on 'Loveless', the opening track on 1998's Two Pages. The ever-shifting personnel gives the album a sense of variety, both in terms of vocals and rhythms. However, there's no loss of cohesion due to 4hero's production skills and, in particular, their string arrangements. Play With The Changes is a breath of summer sunshine. Its sophisticated affirmation is welcome, though it's difficult not to mourn the loss of 4hero's experimental edge. --Colin Buttimer

When you look back retrospectively at 4hero's lengthy career over the early nineties to present, what strikes first is that it can be described as two distinct movements. First, from their proto-rave days ("Mr Kirk's Nightmare", anyone ?) to drum'n bass innovators status (1995's classic "Parallel Universe" LP), when Dego Mc Farlane and Marc Mac fuelled all their respective talents in one full sonic assault altogether.
Afterwards (and that is from 1998's "Two Pages" and since), their music clearly showcased their duality: if Dego's contributions went ever further into beats'n bleep trickery (which also meant being at the source of the "Broken Beat" sound, i.e. pals New Sector Movements and Bugz In The Attic), Marc Mac focused on a much more soulful and acoustic approach, all string-soaked and heavenly vocals. Therefore, and several years ahead of Outkast, 4hero became the first act since The Beatles ("White Album" period onwards) to showcase so fearlessly their artistic schizophrenia, culminating in their last proper LP, 2001's "Creating Patterns", where you could tell within a few bars which of the two guys had produced what track. If on "Two Pages", this diversity was segregated to two different discs, "Creating Patterns" was a mish-mash of both, radically changing styles from one track to another (which made its full-length listening somewhat frustrating, as you would sometimes wish for more of one genre instead of being busted from one to another all the way through).

Being a total 4hero fan and followed every album (incl. remixes, jacobs optical) - Play really is the absolute definitive album - it all makes senses, the sounds are lush, the production tighter than anything before - previous albums have been experimental, this one really is the best - i've read conflicting reviews, critisiing that the production is maybe too good?? how is that possible? they helped shaped drum and bass, and well once you've conquered that space- why not conquer all the influences - this album is injected with drum and bass, soul, funk and jazz with modern day lyrics that will blow your mind the moment you listen to it- it just will refuse to leave your cd player...... truly brilliant.

"Play With The Changes" clearly showed that despite the fact that they were gone for six years (since 2001), they were not the least bit rusty. The tracks were hot like an Indian summer giving me comparisons with US3's return in "Say What." This was an exciting classical neo-soul rhythm-type of an album that true music fans will enjoy. It combines deep creativity and originality from several different cultures to result in this hot fiery collection. The production was excellent on just about every track. I don't understand why this album has not gotten as much exposure as it deserves.

My favorite tracks include "Morning Child" ft. Carina Anderson, "Look Inside" ft. Face, "Take My Time" ft. Jack Davey (The First Three Tracks!), "Give In" ft. Darien Brockington & Little Brother, "Sophia", "Bed of Roses" ft. Jody Watley. "Superwoman" ft. Terry D. was a feministic yet uplifting track for all women feeling rejected.

There is much of a positive atmosphere expressed throughout the album. This group, 4hero, is responsible in introducing me to the genre of "drum and bass" (also know as jungle music). They deeply estalished their well-created footprints in this genre that can appease music fans of all genres. That is what has been so strikingly special about this group since the 90s.

It was impressive for them to collaborate with such artists such as most notably Jody Watley (who you can never forget from Shalamar) followed by the ever-growing Phonte and Darien Brockington. You need to buy this album especially if you like artists such as Us3, Nicolay (Dutch Producer) and Foreign Exchange.

I have to agree with dbouqet below - this album has a couple of weak parts but when it's good it's oh-so-good. Tracks like 'Look Inside', 'Something In The Way' and the Ursula Rucker-featuring 'The Awakening' would be the best track on most other albums, but the title track here is mindblowing; the direction change is stunning and the last three minutes are something else. Discover for yourself. I think 4Hero have found their sound.

Lush orchestration and depth of production is the key here as 4hero release their strongest album to date. It pays true homage to their key influences- The Brothers Mizell, Charles Stepney, Rotary Connection and Richard Evans. This is some of the best quality music around today- in any genre. 4Hero play close attention to the sound as much as the use of instrumentation. If you like strings and drums you will like this album. The standout is Play With the Changes which has a heavy heavy change of direction mid way through. The guests, Kaidi Tatham, Larry Mizell, Jody Watley, Phonte from Little Brother bring quality to the mix while 4hero maintain their core sound. I did feel that some of the tracks- such as the Stevie wonder cover Superwoman- lacked an edge- there is little broken beat here and the emphasis is on songs. But, really, no-one else could do a better job. In summary, I'd have been happier with a ten track killer album but this is the sound of a band making progress and defining themselves. They are head and shoulders above the competition.
