Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

George Evelyn--experimental sample expert, soul aficionado, club manager, DJ and founding father of the trip-hop genre--is the name behind the groove collective known as Nightmares On Wax. As laid back as the vibe on the beaches of Goa he loves to frequent, Evelyn's second album displays a startling lucidity. Strings that caress and plodding drumbeats are deftly arranged to leave a subliminal sound guaranteed to soothe even the most stressful of days. An eclectic and well-implemented array of live musical influences and the raw resonance of the production define Smokers Delight, marking it out as an album that rises above the too often bleep-orientated ambience of the leftfield movement. --George Lees

From beginning to end this CD never pretends to be anything but what it is - a relaxing head trip for all those who like to flow into their music. Listening to this album is an experience the likes of which you rarely come into contact with in modern music. Each song is a personal interpretation of previous music forms, combining layers of melodies to sometimes amazing effect. This album is recommended to anyone who appreciates or wants to know what the meaning of the words 'chilled out' really is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Appropriately named evening listening 27 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful CD. It is different to their first album, not better or worse. NoW have produced some beautiful tunes on this eg. 'Pipes Honour' has me enthralled every time I hear it; I put this on at a party and a good 15 people asked me what it was because they wanted to buy it. Some have said that this is just average trip-hop, but I think there is something more to it than that. An enjoyable soundtrack to a smoke. DW

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent album for the collection!!!!! 2 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this album more on word of mouth rather than actually listening to it before I bought it which some might say was a little daft. But after a few listens I became very fond of the laid back collection with some clever deft touches added in. At first listen you may feel this isn't quite to your liking but if you leave it on and don't skip the tracks I can guarantee you will not be disappointed it is a great mix of all sorts of different sounds which blend so well together and leave you feeling relaxed but focused

5.0 out of 5 stars shhmokin' 25 Sep 2000
Format:Audio CD
If your'e like me and can't buy any old cd just on a whim this album has to be for you because its a solid peice of work, and it's consistant throughout the album. I've had it for ages, and I still listen to it simply because it's beautiful music, the whole album moves along at a stoned pace, strings laid on smooth beats.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice chilled beats 2 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is certainly worth the buy - it's chilled with its smooth beats and rhythms. The very first track is particularly good, with some snippets bubbling through of Quincy Jones' 'Summer in the City'. Fantastic! Might I add the record I've just mentioned can be found on 'Mellow Mellow', a compilation album of 70's grooves and chilled breaks.. that's on 'Harmless Recordings'. On it, you'll find the original 'blueprints' used and mixed by many artists such as Nightmares on Wax, Massive Attack, Portishead and the Spanish collective 'Cafe del Mar'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vastly Underrated 17 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Some absolutely superb tunes surrounded by others that are merely excellent. If you need something to chill out to then this is the one.

Then get this one. Along with Carboot Soul it is the best. A little more beats than Carboot Soul but equally chilled out. 'Groove St. and 'Wait a Minute/Prayin (For a Jeepbeat)' are the ones to look out for but the whole album is great. 'Nights Interlude' is good but not as good as 'Les Nuits' on Carboot Soul. If you're even looking here and reading this review you should probably own this CD.
