Something you may have missed...

Essential. In a word, this CD, is. Forget the naysayers carping that this is spoilt by Mr Craig freestyling over the top, from a DJ's perspective it tells me this; that he was loving every minute of this mix as he did it, he isn't doing it for effect, my guess would be he was either chemically enhanced or simply deeply into the tunes as he was mixing this, I sing and talk all the time when I mix. You can tell he enjoyed making this, it shows in the best parts of the album, the syncopated tribal african inspired percussion and funky guitars layered over the top in Africanism, cutting straight into the mighty Precious Love (instrumental smashes the vocal version IMHO). Blade dancer and various other tunes make this a very accomplished mix in my opinion.
All I will say beyond what I've said - listen to this before you slag it. Make your own mind up. You might find, like me, you really like the style of the album (one of my best friends who knows me well, shares a similar taste in music MADE me listen as he swore I'd like it, he was correct!) and the spirit it's been produced in.
