5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 14 July 2006

P. D. Griffiths "Sweeney" (London) - See all my reviews

This review is from: The World Is Gone (Audio CD)
This album will blow you away. Various have built up their reputation with a string of white label 12inches followed by 3 immaculate limited edition 7inch singles. They have been compared to Portishead and Massive Attack, but they offer so much more. They have leveraged off of the Grime and Dubstep scenes but their sound(s), as their name suggests, is much more genre defying. They mix hard beats with folk and hip hop and anything else that grabs their fancy. You really need to listen to this album all the way through to appreciate what they are about. No doubt they will continue to defy expectations over the coming months. Get in there now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very ecclectic - in a good way, 30 Aug. 2006

This review is from: The World Is Gone (Audio CD)
Difficult to pin a single description on this one - the tracks are so varied (hence the appropriate band name - though don't know why they dropped the Productions from Various Productions)... But the album successfully takes in a huge range of musical modes - from folk to crunk, heavy electronica to pop, trip hop and some bluesy goth stuff too... if any of that makes sense. If you like Portishead, LCD Soundsystem, any of the Output label bands in fact - you'll like this. I'd recommend starting with the track called Don't Ask - it's the easiest route in to what is a pretty challenging album - but the rewards are great... Set to be a cult winner I think...
