5.0 out of 5 stars The roots of Faithless!! 12 July 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is where is all began for the collective know as Faithless, and this album is deffinatly a must for anyone who likes the much loved God is a DJ or Insomnia. The track Salva Mea is absolutly amazing. Its worth buying the album just for this track, but the rest that you get with it are equally worth there money. If loving you is wrong has an immense bass line and deals with a subject i'm sure we're all familar with. The classic track of this album is obviously Insomnia, we all know and love it, need i say more? Oh yeah those of you who watch Trigger Happy TV will probably recognise Drifting Away too. This album is made up of several stonking tunes, and belive me, its greater than the some of its parts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Destined to be a modern classic 24 Dec 1999
Format:Audio CD
Reverence, quite simply, is an awesome album. Blending a traditional club music feel with distinctive, sleazy vocals the album provides a varied and unique sound. Standout tracks: well, all of them really. You could mention "If Lovin' you is wrong" (the music from the Boddingtons advert) for it's fantastic, dirty feel, or you could mention "Don't leave" for it's sweeping, uncomplicated elegance, but you HAVE to mention "Insomniac" with it's quintissential chord sequence which is to Dance music what the overture of "Beethoven's Fifth" is to Classical. There are too many fine qualities of this album to mention, Faithless undoubtedly belong within the ranks of Prodigy and Massive attack, simply put, I couldn't recommend this album more highly, BUY IT!!!

A multitude of musical styles adorn this fine album.Three particular tracks stand out; Insomnia, Salva Mea and Reverence are all club classics, all of which make fantastic listening. Don't Leave is a soulful slow ballad, and the spoken Rap-style lyrics of If Lovin' you is Wrong and Dirty Ol' Man can't fail to raise a smile. I have never before listened to an album that combine tracks that include ballads, dance music, rap,house,blues and the odd classical segment. This sounds like a recipe for an absolute disaster, the reality is that this is an album that will become a classic.If I had to describe this album in a short phrase I would say "I love this album but I'm not sure why"? Buy it and see for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is really AMAZING music!!! 10 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
WOW!!!!! This album has an absolutley amazing range of music but it is definatley the best chill out album in the world! There's some dance music; Salva Mea, Insomnia, and Drifting away, some rap, and 100% of music that will be classic some day! Faithless, a group made up of, Maxi Jaxx, Jamie Catto, Sister Bliss, and Rollo (brother of better known artist Dido) have made an album that is really inspirational, and dont be put off by the beginning of some songs, they change dramatically after the intro. You have to listen to this all the way through, and once you have, you'll be glad you bought it and only wish you had their other albums!!! Whatever happens, BUY THIS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars So good i'll never stop loving it 27 Aug 2002
By Tozznok
Format:Audio CD
My introduction to faithless was the track insomnia. being too young to have experienced in a club when it was released, i first heard about 2 years ago, and i thought it was amazing. A year later i bought Outrospective - which i thought was good, but didn't live up to Insomnia, so i bought Reverence - and i was just knocked out of my seat. This is one of those rare albums where every single track is so good you can listen to it over and over and not get bored. This is essential - even people who aren't fans of dance music should own this, as it definitely works outside a club and provides one of the truly amazing musical experiences in British music of the last few years. the best album i own, no contest.

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning... 1 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
well, what can i say but wow. this cd obviouly isn't rated highly enough anywhere, because i only found out about it a couple of months ago. every track oozes class, from the relative fast beats of insomnia, one of the best dance tracks ever written, to the chilled out and mellow vibes of track 2, to the now famous trigger happy tv track. every track is different, but each one in their own right deserves attention and respect. this is one of those albums where you feel guilty if you have a fake copy, because the artist has done so well, that they deserve evey penny they get for the album. buy it, for a cd that will blow your mind. one of the few albums where every track is classy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully eclectic 16 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album really is quite remarkable. The incredible diversty, ranging from poppy guitar songs (Don't Leave) to classic dance beats (Insomnia, Salva Mea) mean that it is continually interesting. Although there are some tracks that are a little below par (If Lovin' You is Wrong for example) the standard is, in general, very high.
The track Reverence reminds me of some Leftfield tracks from Rhythm and Stealth, perhaps Dusted or Chant of a Poor Man. Don't Leave features Jamie Catto's excellent voice. A simple but touching love song it is an unecessary but pleasant change from Maxi Jazz's deadpan. Salva Mea is a standout track, getting more and more interesting with each new section. You keep expecting that as the beats change the next part can never live up to the previous one, but it consistently rewards. If Lovin' You is Wrong gives the impression that maybe it's trying a little too hard to be sexy, certainly a lowlight of the album. Angeline is a return to form, and a return to good old-fashioned singing and songwriting. Unusually in three-time, it is simply a great song. Insomnia needs little description it is such a classic track, the only caveat being the lyrical difference to the radio edit. Dirty Ol' Man is another weaker track, but is by no means a bad song, it simply suffers from a poor chorus. Flowerstand Man is somewhat meandering and hard to follow, but, again, by no means a bad song. Baseball Cap is another Maxi Jazz rapping vehicle, and works quite well. Drifting Away is a return to the club sound. The two remixes included on the limited edition are quite reasonable as bonus tracks, but neither is better than the original.
Simply put, this album is a wonderfully eclectic mix of songwriting, hip-hop and British club sounds, leading the listener through genres as diverse as trance folk with a generous amount of London hip-hop and a touch of soul here and there, and deserves a place in any music enthusiasts collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still fresh, still pleasure to listen
It's hard to categorize Faithless but I think it's safe to say that the most of their songs are "dance" or "electronic". This album was recorded many years ago, in 1996. Read more
