This review is from: Apricot Morning (Audio CD)
I don't quote know how Will Holland does it...despite working on numerous other projects (QSO, The Limp Twins and a plethora of remixes) he still manages to present us with QUALITY albums under his solo mantra Quantic.
Having heard consistently good things about the 5th Exotic, I was expecting a lot from Quantic Boy and Apricot Morning easily lived up to my expectations.
There are some great points of access for the new listener on this album - the groove change in 'Transatlanitc', for example, instantly gives a taste of great things to come. However, like any good album, Apricot Morning continues to develop the more you listen to it - there's always a new hook groove or nuance to discover and keep you coming back for more.
The sweet performances by soulful guest vocalist, and fellow Tru-Thoughts signing, Alice Russell make a welcome addition to the album (looking forward to Alice's solo album in May...), as do the quirky MC-ing shenanigans of Aspect on hip-hop outing 'Primate Boogaloo'.
In short, if you haven't already experienced the groove laden delights of Quantic, or have enjoyed any of his other projects, buy this album - you'll love it.
