Not completely sold on Koop yet....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Koop Islands (MP3 Download)
I am new to the Koop Sound and came across Koop after hearing 'a different you' on the radio.I have both 'Koop Islands' and 'Waltz for Koop' and I think that 'islands' is a better album. However, where the Koop sound is very appealing, I find the vocals of Yukimi Nagano somewhat mannered, lazy and a little irritating. The child like sound of her vocals has been done before ( Bjork anyone) and at times it doesn't suit the rhythm or the rhyme of the Koop sound.
Apart from that little gripe, I like the album, although like another reviewer mentioned 'Beyond the son' is really quite a bad and boring track.So I think it will be a few more Koop albums before I'm completely sold on them.
Making use of samples from other pieces of music and making a complete track out of them is very clever. And, if you have a good ear, you might just recognize where some of these samples have come from, which in turn makes Koop a lot of fun.
