An album of true Ambient Genius from Chicane!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Behind the Sun (Audio CD)
What an album! I think any person who appreiciates good music whatever the style will agree with me when i say that 'Behind The sun' is a more than a work of brilliance. I bought the album on the strength of 'Don't Give up'(Classic dance song which thoroughly deserved the number 1 it got!), 'Saltwater'(a great ibiza track from '99) & 'No Ordinary Morning', which in my mind was probably the best song I heard last year. Both the vocals (provided by Tracy Ackerman) and the music are a stunning collection of pure ambience, and it summed up the rolling sunsets and warm summer evenings of last year perfectly.(Well, the little bit of we did get!!) Other chill-out tracks include the amazing 'Autum Tactics', the fine instrumental of 'Overlap', the spanish feel of 'Low Sun'. The album takes you on a journey of true ambience from the slow, chilled string chord changes of 'Overture' to the Faster yet equally as laid back 'Andromeda' which finishes off the journey perfectly! I advise you to buy this album simply because it will make your life better! Also worth checking out is Chicane's first album 'Far From The maddening Crowds', Quality!!!
