5.0 out of 5 stars Simply AMAZING!, 25 May 2007
This review is from: Soundboy Rock (Audio CD)
I can not properly express the way i feel about Groove Armada, and in particular this album, i can not think of another artist/artists that have progresseed this much throughout there albums, i have every album they have released so far and each one could be mistaken as coming from a different artist.

On Soundboy Rock, there are a couple of tracks that stay true to Armadas chill out laid back roots such as tracks heard on the classc Verigo but mjority of the album is very electro(ish) its hard to explain really what the style the album is, the title track is almots completly Dub style but with a nice modern edge, on the first listen it was my standout track.

Somehow though i think nearly every track has been my standout track at some point, which is something i have never experienced from any album!

the intro is sublime, but i cant explain why?? its just sets the album up perfectly and is the perfect length.

Get down the first single is ok but in my opinion the poorest track on the album, i think i would prefer just an instrumental version because the vocals annoy me. from here on though there is not a single second of the album that i would skip.

Most tracks are upbeat but the arrangment of the album is perfect with laid back tracks such as Paris and From the rooftops slotted in just to calm the album down just when needed. From the rooftops is such a beautiful track, it is instantly relaxing with it lazy piano and bass and featuring a simply georgeous slight vocal.

I do not want to say too much about each track but this album is amazing, i can not pick a standout track anymore, excluding the first single Get Down, they are all standout tracks in their own right.

I can not wait to see which style the boys are going to take their next album into.

In my opinion the best album of 2007 by a long long way, The Armada never fail to deliver, BUY IY NOW!!!
