2.0 out of 5 stars bad news, 24 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Slime And Reason (Audio CD)
Sorry to drop this on anyone who's looking forward to a great new album from roots manuva based on the so-far glowing amazon reviews, but this is a very bad album.

I've been a fan for years and years and my honest first, second and third impressions (it didn't get a fourth listen, i'm afraid) were that he's hard up and put out an album as quickly as possibly, despite having no content and nothing to say. I hope this is true, because if not this a blight on his artistic record.

In 'collosal insight' on awfully deep(get hold of the limited addition bonus cd if possible, called 'the noodle pack')roots manuva sings "this could well be my last LP; i've had a good run, i've made a few G's; now it's time to rest my knobbly knees..."

I wish he had.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb album, 1 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Festival In The Desert (Audio CD)
Amazing live album. I bought this on a recommendation from a journalist reviewer a while back, and it really is stonking. The recordings really capture the atmosphere of the festival, and are of an incredible quality. The artists are mixed in style,- blues, rock,and even a little rap are blended easily and naturally with more african sounds from traditional instruments. Studded throughout are pure tribal pieces - traditional chants and wails. I'd be really surprised if anyone with a keen love of music and an open mind regarding style disliked this album. The quality of artists, songs and recording, the mix and blend of styles - and the raw edge that it maintains - really do make this a wonderful compilation.
