Some great tunes, but not a good mix,
This review is from: Godskitchen Classics (Audio CD)
Godskitchen: a classic itself. This album though isn't.
All the ingredients are there with tunes you've forgotten you've loved, evoking memories of long nights of your earlier blissful sessions. Yet in the same way as I was a mess at 4:30 on those mornings so too are the mixes in here.
Some of the tunes just don't make sense in the mix moving very disjointedly from upbeat majors to dark minors and back again. Where's the well thought out progression of a night? And would it have been such a bad thing to weed out some of the more obscure tracks and tighten it to just 2 CDs? If you want a "Classic" album why annoy the punters with disappointing tracks?
Still though, there are a few great moments in here. Mid-way through CD2 it goes all funky, almost disco: and it works. It even exists from that grove well and it made me smile on the Tube.
You probably own most of the music on this album anyway: if you do, then I wouldn't bother buying it. If you don't have these tracks though, get it.
