7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Mr. J. J. Niland VINE VOICE on 31 Oct. 2005
Format: Audio CD
Herbaliser's previous albums have been pretty cohesive i.e. they all sound pretty much the same- funky hip-hop and jazz-tinged instrumentals, with some excellent collaborations with vocalists such as What What (aka Jean Grae), MF Doom and Roots Manuva. It's a formula that works well, and it's a formula they have perfected in 'Take London'.
There are some fantastic singles on this album- 'Generals' is a fantastic posse cut by Jean Grae and friends, and brings back the sort of quality group tracks that were the staple of mid-90s hip-hop e.g. Wu-Tang. The Herbaliser also demonstrate that they can slow things right down, demonstrated best by the wonderfully relaxing 'If You Close Your Eyes'.
However, like the other Herbaliser albums, the tracks on 'Take London' are best enjoyed as an album i.e. if you are going to listen to one track, you really should listen to them all. This is the sort of album you'd pop on after getting back from a hard-days work and you are opening that ice cold beer. It's far more than the sum of it's parts.
In conclusion: With 'Take London', The Herbaliser retain their spot as the most hip-hop orientated act on the Ninja Tune roster. If you liked their previous work, you'll love this. It really is impressive that they have managed to consistently produce to such a high standard.

Excellent work. One of the best albums of the year. Check out Generals and Gadget Funk for my highlights. You should buy this, it will enhance any collection out there. They're back to their best and can't wait to see them live next month.

They've done it again 2 Jun. 2005
By Keith Gillard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Jake and Ollie have done it again. Another truly GREAT album in the same vein as "Something Wicked". Their excellent live band is pushed more front and centre here, with Ollie's turtable skills moved more into the background. Hot and heavy horns with some serious funk and plenty of surprises, this album is great. Half the tracks are vocal hip hop, with the other half instrumental, and the whole thing listens well from start to finish. Highly recommended!

Herbal Return 7 Sept. 2005
By terebi-kun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After the not-too-memorable "Something Wicked", The Herbaliser cook an excelent collection of songs in the vein of their "Very Mercenary" album. Roots Manuva is excellent, and the female MC spot in this album is taken by Jean Grae, bringing back fond memories of Herbaliser's collaborations with Bahamadia. Great beats, with a nice orchestral sound and a soundtrack-like quality. Great album.
