5.0 out of 5 stars Bukem downtempo effort, 24 Sep 2006
Being the first reviewer of this album I feel as If I should at least give it the kind of review it deserves. 'Soul Obsession' released in 2002 on LTJ Bukems' downtempo and sister to Good Looking records label Cookin records is an absolute gem to add to any music lover's collection.

This is the most uplifitng, sensual album that I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. Ulrich's first album 'Far away trains passing by' was at the time an album which I naively thought could not be surpassed until he released this little gem. If you have the opportunity to get this you will no way regret this. A true master piece top marks Ulrich Schnauss!!!!

First album, what a disappointment!!!! There was absolutely nothing desirable about it, however having read a review about his new release and how supposedly it beats the pants off it's previous album!! I decided to give it a try as I love Ninja Tune and they rarely disappointment (please send me some freebees)!!! And I was not disappointed it is much more like music I expected from the Kid and Ninja. There are some quality tracks and sounds but he does not lose his trademark wackiness which is his trademark and with a beautiful comic book and album cover, how can you not want to give it a try!!!
