3.0 out of 5 stars Its a bit clanking, 13 Jan 2003
This review is from: Rhythm and Stealth (Audio CD)
This doesn’t really have the subtlety of the original, favouring full on clanking techno over intricately textured soundscapes. That’s not all bad but you should know what you’re letting yourself in for. That said both Afrika Shox and Swords are absolutely gorgeous tracks but its Phat Planet that is most representative of Leftfield’s new direction. Its also the best example of it, there are quite a lot of tracks here that just chug away fairly repetitively.
There’s enough going on here to stop it becoming truly boring but most of it only makes sense played at stupidly high volumes.
Surprisingly though this album sounded great played live as it reminded me exactly of how primal, non cerebral and instinctive great Dance music can be. Perhaps not really suited to your living room though.
