5.0 out of 5 stars Cuttin to The Chase
An old school man, with little knowledge of the garage scene, I picked up this and Sincere simutaneously, almost in error. But this was no mistake.
Cut to The Chase is a hugely accomplished and confident piece of work. Great harmonies, strong individual vocals and a kickin beat throughout, makes you wanna Live you Life. British female rap, garage, drum and bass, a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy.
Brilliantly produced, well written and catchy pop tunes with some big names to boot. It should really be quite an impressive album...

But it's really, really, really cheesy.

Sincere is a million times more classy than Cut To The Chase, and if you're considering buying this album on the strength of Matt's aforementioned debut, I reckon you'll be...

Cut to The Chase is a hugely accomplished and confident piece of work. Great harmonies, strong individual vocals and a kickin beat throughout, makes you wanna Live you Life. British female rap, garage, drum and bass, a delicious ragga turn and some sweet soul (courtesy Mr Escoffery) this album takes a multitude of disciplines and blends then into one great piece of music. Stand Out track is Ghetto Queen which is worth the entrance fee alone. Quality

4.0 out of 5 stars Cut To The Chase-Is It That Good?!?, 26 May 2003
This review is from: CUT TO THE CHASE (Audio CD)
If you're looking for an MJ Cole album that is reminiscent of his earlier masterpieces (e.g. Sincere), then approach this album with care-you will be suprised. MJ Cole aka Matt Coleman has come a long way since then. Turning producer on this wonderful album, Cut to the Chase proves that very fact. Don't get me wrong-he hasn't forgotten his UK Garage roots as demonstrated by tracks such as Ruff Like Me feat. PD Syndicate. However, MJ has branched out bringing his fans some of the finer vocal house tracks as demonstrated by the tracks Wondering Why feat. Vula & Perfect Pitch feat. Jill Scott. There's even a bit for Drum & Bass lovers where MJ has teamed up with Fallacy (who has done tunes with Shy FX) in a tune called Live My Life and for all the R'n'B lovers there's tunes with Shaun Escoffrey (Lost Our Way). All in all this album is an all-round album bringing the listener a wide variety of different musical flavours proving that MJ Cole is more than just the UK Garage DJ that he has come to be known as.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Stuff, 12 May 2003

This review is from: CUT TO THE CHASE (Audio CD)
For those that are unaware MJ Cole is the biggest Producer on The UK Garage scene today. But he is more widely know as a verstile producer as he creates he own unique blend of Garage blending Jazz, RNB and heavy 4X4 basslines and beats with some quality vocals in for good measure.
If you bought his debut album "Sincere" then the follow up "Cut To the chase" is right up you're street if you didn't buy either album or are not a lover of Garage music then like me then MJ Cole will open your eyes and ears with his style well worth the money so buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elegant, 11 May 2003
This review is from: CUT TO THE CHASE (Audio CD)
I'm really glad Mj has released his new album. After listening to it I realized that it's much more than what I was expecting. After the success Sincere had in the USA, I thought it was going to be a little bit more r'n'b or hip hop, just to match most people likes. But he didn't. He kept all his 2step skills and made a great album with beautiful voices from Vula and Niara. There are no big surprises in what this album is compared to his previous work, but it's pefectly done. You won't stop dancing while listening to songs like Live My Life, and you won't stop kissing while listening to beautiful tunes like Nice and Slow.
A must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars The finest album so far this year!, 6 May 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: CUT TO THE CHASE (Audio CD)
'Cut to the chase' delievers exactly what it promises, as it carries on exactly where 'Sincere' left off in 2000.
Even though there is a huge diversity in the style of these 15 tracks, Cole yet again manages to perfect every one in his own unique, now famous style of clinically smooth production. From one of the best opening tracks on any album I've ever heard in 'The pianist', to the uplifting vocal talents of Jill Scott in 'Perfect pitch' through to the dark and dirty basslines of 'Ruff like me', it is impossible not to enjoy at least one of the many different musical styles which is showcased here.
The two and a half year wait for this album was certainly well worth the wait, and I know I'll still be listening to the album in two and a half years from now! If only more producers would follow the lead of M J Cole and embrace as many different styles of music, the world of UK garage music would surely be a much richer place!
Highly recommended, compulsive listening! Buy it now!
