5.0 out of 5 stars Roll a fat one and warn the neighbours....., 31 Dec 2001
This review is from: Mezzanine (Audio CD)
It is very hard to pigeon hole this album, not really hip-hop, certainly not dance, pretty much unique in the contrast of the tracks, which to me encapsulates Massive Attack's approach. If you have a good cd player this album will bring it alive. With powerful engaging bass lines, smooth vocals, this has a much harder edge than Blue Lines, with a touch of Portishead thrown in.
Moody and Atmospheric, this album is not background music and your mum will probably not like it, but for me this album will not be bettered for a decade. If your into your wacki backi, this album will be more welcome than a tube of Pringles.

5.0 out of 5 stars hmmm sexy, sultry, 31 Dec 2001
This review is from: Simple Things (Audio CD)
Yes Yes Yes alright, Zero 7 do sound like AIR at their smooth best, but who cares, this is simply a majestic album. Any one of these tracks would grace any of the Chillout albums, of which there an abundence at present. "Destiny" aside do not expect to find tracks to storm the singles charts, just lay back, dimm the lights and let this album take you to that nice place. Every track oozes class with harmonic keyboards infused with subtle stings and woodwind cameo's and of course the sexy vocals. Move over Barry White this is my new weapon in the war of seduction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply an outstanding reflection of the 80's Dance sound, 21 Nov 2001
This review is from: The Very Best Of Change (Audio CD)
I was already a Change fan having purchased a couple of albums in their hayday of the early to mid eighties, but even I was suprised just how good many of the tracks sound today. Change may not be an artist all are familier with, most will be pleasantly surprised to unearth a classic and I mean CLASSIC from the past, of which there are at least 5 on this album, "Change of Heart" and "Searching" to name but two. Although in my opinion the quality dips in the middle of the cd the tracks either end will bring memories flooding back. Obvious comparisons are to be made with Chic but the tracks on this album have a harder edge with the same infectious groove. The tracks do evolve through the 80's from the early disco bias, with help from Luther Vandross through the Funk era and on to the mid eighties soul sound. I thought the later tracks, represented here by the brilliant "Lets go Together" were as good as their early work, proving Change to be one of the greatest acts of this genre of all time.
This is as good as funk gets, I have no hesitation in awarding 5 stars.
