4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting! 22 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
Didn't know what to expect but pleasantly surprised. Almost tribal percussive beats with a healthy dose of dub. Some unusual instrumental sounds thrown in too. Danceable and quite hard in parts, yet chilled in others. Difficult to pigeon-hole but recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Austrian electronica/dub 22 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
I must disagree with the fella who reviewed this album before me - Austrians are famous (I dare to say this) for it's Kruder and Dorfmeister masters who, by the way, mixed one of the Sofa Surfer's song on their K&D Sessions - that's how I got to buy this album. I saw Sofa Surfer's concert few weeks ago in Prague and it was something I honestly did not expect. Under this influence I bought this album and though at first listen a bit disappointed I discovered a subtle chill-out streaks behind the beats. It's very good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album in last 5 years 18 May 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A chance buy following a magasine review this was the freshest sound I had heard in recent years. As far as I am aware Austria is not famed for its fine electronic music but this is well worth purchasing and is much better than the second album 'cargo'. This album is one of those rare pieces of electronic music that doesn't date extremely quickly.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Overly-Ambitious Experimental Blend 9 Dec 2003
By "boxingelena2000" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Like Kruder & Dorfmeister, Sofa Surfers are from Vienna, Austria. The European vibe can be felt in `Transit's every track, whether it's the accent of the sporadic mc, like on `Walking Ghosts', or the continuous down-tempo grooves, subtle and classy and rare in the US (Sasha & Digweed come close, as well as Aphex Twin, at his least aggressive and most lyrical). Despite evident comparisons, Sofa Surfers are smart enough to, while sustaining the K&D element, stray away from it and delve into their own harmonious `testings'. On `Transit' it works to a certain degree - the band's skill is palpable, but they lack focus, consistence and confidence. Which is forgivable. They were newcomers, after all.
It is the kind of album that would appeal to jazz-lovers, electronic geeks, stoners and those who strive for musical variety. THAT `Transit' has a barrel-full of, yet, while appealing, it sounds unfinished, or inadequately assembled. Take the opening track, `Bon Voyage', the album's highlight. Slow and methodical at the start, it astonishes with an abrupt tirade of precise drum-n-bass that is unexpectedly bracing. The problem is, the next three tracks after that make the listener long for the `bombshell' that `Bon Voyage' had hidden for them - unfortunately, they don't.
Which is not to say they're not dexterously produced. A little bit of saxophone; a fragment of African drums; rich, dexterous layers of understated beats over stretched uncanny melodies generate positive reception, predominantly on `Monoscopolis', `Tse Tse Fly' (which has otherworldly vocals over a plausibly dawdling drumming hum) and `Lada Taiga'.
K&D create definitive chill-out albums. They accentuate the fine power of music to express more than words ever can. Their devious, velvety rhythms have already propelled them to stardom - their sound is recognizable, it's distinct. Sofa Surfer`s "Transit' is NOT distinct, yet introduces a skillful new promising band to the European world of refined down-tempo grooves.
PS Check out their better, 2d album `Cargo', and their masterwork, `Encounters'.
GET this if you like: Red Snapper, Plaid, Tosca, K&D, Four Tet, DJ Krush

4.0 out of 5 stars definetely worth that money! 8 Sep 2003
By CoolActive - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Nice, trippy european based sound with all kinds of arrangements - from reggae to classic downbeat techno. Sofa surfers are showing that they are mature band. Very similar to Spacer, Juryman....
Good buy for sure
