5.0 out of 5 stars Heard this playing in Debenhams! Awesome., 22 July 2000

This review is from: Suzuki (Audio CD)
I have discovered the music from Tosca through various compilations such as Future Sound of Jazz, but now it's time for the full album. Suzuki is filled with 11 tracks, and if you're looking for that typical dreamy future jazzistic Tosca lounge sound, you won't be disappointed. And dreamy it is ! That typical smooth trippy music, with light dreamy whispering voices on top is omnipresent. Smokey indeed ! I especially like "Orozco", with a slow smooth fat funky oldskool bassline lithered with dreamy chants. Or take"Busenfreund" for example, going more into the atmospheric lounge-houze directions with moody keys all over. "Ocean Beat" is here too, which is by now already a classic essential lounge track ! "John Tones" and "The key" explore more into future jazzy soundscapes, again super dreamy for sure! Finally, the delicate soundscape of "Peartoff" closes the Tosca album. Yes, it's lounge time with Tosca, the Suzuki album is fully packed with warm smokey music you'll enjoy for hours! It proves once again that the Vienna scene is alive !

4.0 out of 5 stars Polished trip hop for a chilled evening in., 22 Mar. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Suzuki [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Cleanly produced melody driven grooves from Richard Dorfmeister and some other guy I'm not familiar with. More ambient hip hop or trip hop or hip trop or whatever we're supposed to call it these days. If you've heard the K&D sessions this may sound like more of the same. If not go out and buy that first. This is background music really. Vocally samples replace the tweaks, swirls and scratches of Dorfmeisters collaborations with Pete Kruder but worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Studiously crafted and beautifully atmospheric..., 22 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Suzuki (Audio CD)
Looking for some cleverly structured, tightly played, wonderfully laid-back music that avoids the boringly lush waters that sink many of the current flood of “chill-out” albums? Well… you’re here! Tosca’s (aka Richard Dorfmeister’s) skills as a serious electro-jazz/hip-hop innovator get the “easy listening” make-over to produce an album that’s underlying complexity augments rather than destroys its melodic content. The end result?... a record you’ll play over and over again because you keep finding more and more layers behind its inherently “catchy” tunes. A sell-out?… well if making high-class tracks that keep drawing you back for more is a bad thing then we’ve got our definitions wrong. Rather a brilliant celebration of what studiously crafted & beautifully atmospheric studio music is all about.
And, if you want more, look no further than disc one of his two CD follow-up – “Dehli 9” – which extends the boundaries of “Suzuki” even further. Get both, play them back-to-back, and revel in two hours of some of the best sounds around.

5.0 out of 5 stars K&D style vibes for the 21st century, 14 Jun. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Suzuki (Audio CD)
If you liked the K&D Sessions but thought it sounded a bit dated, then this is for you. Morcheeba vs. Massive Attack mixed by Afterlife. Can't be missed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top Chill-out album, 22 Mar. 2000
This review is from: Suzuki [VINYL] (Vinyl)
I listened to this round a friends house and bought it the next day. It is perfect for chilling out to. It is a mixture of nostalgic, soft tunes and some interesting, slightly ambient ones too. If you like top background music you can sleep to, and also "different" tracks to block out the world whilst travelling on the tube to, it's all on here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vroom vroom, 5 Aug. 2003
This review is from: Suzuki (Audio CD)
Put simply, this is one of the most finely crafted aural experiences available, ever. Period.
Defining it as 'chill-out' music does it a great disservice. This is far more complex and rewarding than any number of those Ibiza-influenced compilations. Put it on, close your eyes and let 70 minutes float by in what will seem like minutes. A masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 19 May 2001
By 
Stephen Ritchie (Tunbridge Wells, Kent United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Suzuki (Audio CD)
This is a dark album, very chilled and down-tempo. At times drifting into the faintest of sounds and ambient moods.
I found it beautiful, and has some very funky beats at times. A must for K&D fans or anyone riding the "chillout" wave at the moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOSCA - OPERATIC?, 19 Sept. 2007
By 
B. Mehmet "birol40" (London, England) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Suzuki (Audio CD)
This is an album that I keep going back to time and time again and never get tired of listening to the cleverly crafted tunes. Some tracks are soft and downbeat, whilst others are positively funky, but taken together they create the perfect lounge CD. And is it surprising? One half of Tosca is Richard Dorfmeister of legendary duo Kruder & Dorfmeister and so you would expect a quality product. This isn't a quality product, it is an exceptional one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Subtle and Chilled out beats with a dark edge, 24 Mar. 2000
This review is from: Suzuki [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Again Mr. Dorfmeister comes up with the goods with a background/chillout collabaration just that little bit superior to the mass of similar releases on the market. The relaxed and downbeat tempo's are brought to life with the trademark Dorfmeister sounds which add a darker edge to the tracks. Perfect listening to unwind to after a hard day's work.
