5.0 out of 5 stars The Czars of Downtempo & Lounge Music, 14 Oct. 2010
By 
Vikrambir Bagga (Gujarat, India) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: It Takes A Thief (Audio CD)
The Thievary Corporation is undoubtedly the biggest name in the Lounge genre. They're in a league of their own in downtempo music, & started a new wave of electronic lounge music in the late 90s with their unique sounds & productions, with releases such as DJ Kicks, The Mirror Conspiracy, Richest Man in Babylon, Cosmic Game & Radio Retaliation.

'It Takes A Thief' is the best of The Thievary Corporation. It strings together their biggest, most successful career-defining productions, with 16 hand-picked songs, all featured on one compilation. Highlights include massive hits, such as 'Warning Shots', 'Sweet Tides', 'Satyam Shivam Sundaram', 'Until The Morning', 'Sound The Alarm' & 'Lebanese Blonde'.

If you're new to their sound & admire good lounge music, you'll love every bit of this album. Over the years, they've produced some amazing tracks, and most of them are on this one.

Grab your copy. For this price, you cannot go wrong, with such fabulously produced, quality lounge music in one CD. A Must Buy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Introduction to Thievery Corporation, 28 Dec. 2010
This review is from: It Takes A Thief (Audio CD)
I only got into Thievery Corporation a few weeks back, and I was not disappointed, I had been looking for a chilled out lounge/dub band and they tick all of the boxes. What surprised me most was the incorporation of world music particularly from the India through instrumentation. So it isn't just atypical lounge music, it has its own qualities which make it eclectic and accessible.

The album itself I would recommend it to anyone as an introduction to TC, only problem I can say is tracks like 'Tomorrow' aren't included on the album, but that is the band's choice and perhaps for the best given the amount of other good chilled out tracks that are on the album. Stand out tracks include 'Amerimacka' and 'Lebanese Blonde' (which have dub-like bass lines) and 'Satyam Shivam Sundaram' which perfectly demonstrates the world music feel. If I could sum up the album I would describe it as a late night club scene mixed with buddha bar-esque atmospheres intertwined with hypnotic trip-hop grooves.

The albums music is wide-ranging, using electronica as a base and incorporating many elements of music from across the world and mixing them to delightful effect, perfect for late night listening or for lounging around in a bar.
