An upbeat Fila Production
on 12 May 2004
Already owning the majority of Fila Brazillias back catalogue inlcuding various mix and compilation excursions I purchased this album as soon as it was released on Amazon.
The previous release - Jump Leads, received mixed reviews from Fila fans mainly due to the fact that they had used vocals (shock horror) on some of their tracks. Had nobody heard their quality remixing of tracks like Radioheads 'Climb up the walls'?. Obviously not. Overall though Jump Leads was a fairly downbeat affair.
The Life and Times of Phoebus Brumal (LTPB) is on the otherhand a more upbeat affair and the starting track kicks off with a beat which rarely drops throughout the album. However, this is Fila Brazillia we are talking about here and the quality of each track is brilliant. Some of the tracks do include vocals so those of you who dissapproved of the vocals used on Jump Leads may want to steer clear of this one.
I do prefer the more downbeat stuff from Fila, but having said that this album provides a funky, uptempo lift if that is what you are looking for.
Keep it up boys!!
