This is a story of the three states of matter: solid beats, liquid funk and vocals that waft by in gaseous clouds. Coming from Danny Bukem's "Good Looking" stable, the intense almost evangelical belief in drum & bass that Progression Sessions 5 exhibits, will come as no surprise. The man famed for such seminal 1990's releases as Logical Progression and Earth, has kept up a phenomenal output of music over the last five years, but probably because of his purist, uncompromising vision the standard has rarely slipped from the highest level. On PS5 we get some of Good Looking's top performers in one seamless mix: rapper MC Conrad throwing down the verbal gauntlet, new kid on the block Big Bud in blessed-out mode, well-kept secret Lacarno offering up gnarled pieces of raw funk, and of course The Man--Bukem himself. As Conrad explains: "We wanna make you feel like it's June when it's December". Backed by a 4-4 house beat such a sentiment would appear trite and cheesy. But set against the powerfunk of Bukem's protégés it makes perfect sense. Truly progressive. --Tom de Castella

Format: Audio CD
What can I say? Following my first Bukem-Conrad gig in Newcastle I rushed to get this on Conrad's own reccomendation, and it blew me out of the water. FRom the opening 'Skyline' coupled with the vocal talents of MC Conrad and DRS, the scene is set for the defining Progression Sessions album. Every track is sublime, with 'Indian Summer' by Big Bud being a highlight, and the amazing vocal talents of Conrad coming across perfectly on Makoto and Akira's tune. LTJ Bukem's mixing firmly cements him as the most technically accomplished dj I have ever heard, his effortless cross fader is awesome. Since buying this my faith in drum and bass MC'ing has been restored, and I have discovered one of the best labels in music.

Format: Audio CD
With 4 releases previous to this, the format is familiar. Take a selection of Good Looking Records most recent releases, get Bukem or Blame to mix them all together, and then get MC Conrad to lay some smooth and well thought lyrics over the top. And going by the fact that this is the fifth Progression Sessions release, it works well. Very well in fact. I already have the other 4, aswell as all the Logical Progression releases, and this is certainly one of the best mix albums Good Looking have done in a long time. The whole thing sounds classy, the mixing is as always superb and Conrad rolls with the flow of mixing perfectly. If I had to rank this with the other Bukem mixes released over the past 5 years, I would say it comes 2nd just behind Good Looking at the Ministry of Sound, part of the One Half of a Whole Decade Ministry box set. First Class, but then was it ever going to be anything less than excellent?

This album is sure to have you totally converted if your not already. Buy it now! If you've been to a logical progression rave and felt shivers down your spine as Conrad gently an smoothly chats over the floating breaks and then the deepest bass line kicks in, oh man its just ******* wicked. This alburm has it all. Loads of breaks and deep flowing beats. If your not into this type of Drum & Bass your seriously missing out.

Instrumental version is the diamond in the rough 14 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Of this 2 cd set, devotees will probably agree that the instrumental version is the better of the two cd's. As an owner of just about every Bukem disc available, I can definitevely say that the vocals provided on disc 1 can be done without. There are some fantastic tracks on this disc but MC Conrad and DRS seem to be going through the motions of idly rambling through some of the tracks rather than meshing lyrics and beats as in previous Progression Sessions'.
Point being, invest in this set and enjoy disc 2 without the vocals. Track 4 is one of my favorites as is track 10. Big Bud's tracks are also choice material.

A disappointment 12 Oct. 2000
By Iain Macdonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was eagerly anticipating the release of this mix - I think almost everything Good Looking has touched for about the last three years has been outstanding.
I normally really like the MC'ing of Conrad and particularly DRS but on this CD, it's just total overkill - there's barely a pause, and while some of the lyrics are cool, it's all just a bit much.
Thankfully, there's an instrumental version included. The opening four tracks are excellent but after that is a track by MC Conrad which just isn't happening, "Close to the Source", which is by far the worst track on LTJ's album and three totally anonymous tracks which passed me by completely. A recovery at the end is led by a brilliant track by Makoto and a lovely bouncy piece by Big Bud.
The Good Looking Organisation is the coolest and best label (s) there are - you really expect more from them. As a CD, it's not bad but when compared with previous stuff by Mr Bukem, it's pretty week.

Instant groove :) 6 Sept. 2001
By mcgowan_rob@yahoo.co.uk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this album shortly before seeing LTJ and MC Conrad play live in Tallahassee, Florida. The show was amazing and this album captures the performance brilliantly. While not recorded live, there is a definite energy about the whole album with the ebbs and flows in all the right places. Conrad's vocals blend effortlessly into LTJ's silky smooth mixes and to havw one without the other would be wrong. Brilliant.

Disappointing 25 Sept. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sorry people, but I found this one disappointing, the continual mix seems to go on a bit, not like Bukem's other stuff at all.
It does indeed sound like the live set he played last year, but somehow there just isn't enough variety. The second CD being purely instrumental is a bit of a rip off really.
Smooth... 26 Jan. 2002
By "mcbalaban" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
LTJ has done it again. Bukem performs his acetate wizardry the way James Bond deals with his enemies. Effortlessly. I guess that would make MC Conrad Bond's Walther PPK... Not too far from the truth as he mercilessly dominates the scene with his sharp-shoot rhythmic punctuation and orthoepy of marathonic proportions. More like a sub machine-gun really.
This number of Progression Sessions flows smoothly from start to end. Tracks from Pariah, Nu Moon, J-Laze and Itersperse bring fresh energy to the sound while Makoto, coaching his younger brother, brings in the mellow element. If you put Big Bud and Lacarno onto any record, well, you've got my number then. One of the things I like about the Good Looking Series is that they stay more or leas the same. Thus you always know what you're getting. (The possible exception being the Earth series, but as it changes in a... ...logical manner, that's ok.) I wouldn't want it to change to something new (they can always spawn new labels if they want), rather change to new ways of doing the same thing.
The second CD testifies to Makoto's musical prowess. The Japanese version features a completely new mix from Shimizu-san instead of the now standard, instrumental-rip-off-mix, they put in the package in Europe and USA. Aaahh. This is why I love Japan! (Actually, that's why I hate it too, when I'm unable to buy records there and also when I am able to do so, but I see the price.) Enough on fishy label policy. The mix is top-notch. Makoto knows his stuff and now he can concentrate a bit more on his smiling. For mentioning one, Akira's Yellow River (...or was it Liver?.. Ok. Ok. Bad joke.) proves that Makoto needn't stand around the backstage's corner and worry anymore.
