Product Description

Product Description

Strange Cargo Vol.3

Amazon.co.uk Review

Before joining the a-list as deskman to the likes of Madonna (Ray of Light) and the All Saints, William Orbit was a jobbing producer working with Laurie Mayer and Rico Conning as Torch Song through the eighties before producing his own instrumental material as Strange Cargo, the first volume of which was released back in 1987. This, the third in the series, has an eastern theme, which extends from the sleeve art through to occasional samples that cut through the bleeping electronics. It inspired an extreme of love it/hate it reviews on its release and was in fact dropped before finally seeing a release on Virgin. Despite all of this baggage, the album has grown to be the most widely acclaimed of the four to date, with the opening "Water From A Vine Leaf" featuring the vocals of Beth Orton the epitome of ethnic ambience while "Gringatcho Demento" clearly sets the seeds to the later Hinterland. Looking for an album that sits between trance, techno, dub and world music? Look no further -- Kingsley Marshall

.......than an absolute five star classic.

I have been an electronica fan since my childhood and this is most definitely up there in my top five albums of ALL time.

Water from a Vine Leaf always has and always will bring a shiver to my spine.

This album has stood the test of time and sounds as good now as it did when I first heard it back in 1993.

William Orbit..........you surround me.

From the outset this CD is a classic, even years after its initial release it sounds unique & fresh. So much other `electonica' fails to deliver in the `repeated listing' test. This disc does. Every listen brings forward new textures & themes buried deep within a multi-layered production. `Water from a vine leaf' is a total landmark track taking you through a real melodic journey. `Into the paradise' throbs with the driving beat of a club you have always imagined but will never see. The whole work is washed over by organic sounding analogue effects and Williams' trademark experimental reverbs & effects. These now `world recognised' production skills (Madonna - ray of light )lift every track beyond the ordinary. Other standouts include 'My best friend paranoia' which speaks knowingly to whole generation of `comedown kids' while `water babies' lullabies their children. Find out why Madonna describes William as a `genius' and why my babies were born to this CD...........

At times, I question Amazon's pricing structure, especially when they are asking £11+ for a 12 track download of music which is, surprisingly, 22 years old! As for me? I "cheated" and bought a mint-condition used copy for £1.60, including P&P! And I'm delighted with it as it's so relaxing whilst still being relatively "complex" in its' structure. I'd call this "Marmite" music, you'll either love it or hate it. Before you invest in either a new CD or the download, listen to the 30-second samplers as this might save you writing a 1 or 2-star review and quite a few pounds to boot!
