World Music at its Best,
This review is from: The Richest Man In Babylon (Audio CD)
Washington DC's dapper downbeat duo Thievery Corporation have been pimping some of the genre's most finely-tailored grooves for quite some time now, and have joined Kruder & Dorfmeister and a handful of others at the top of the "downbeat" field.
Their new album is another wicked blend of worldly beats and pieces, with an international cast of vocalists (including dreamy Icelandic singer Emiliana Torrini, Jamaican deejay Shinehead and others) adding authenticity to this cruisey cocktail of Eastern, African, Jamaican and loungey European influences. Superbly packaged with a book of photojournalists' images from all around the globe, 'The Richest Man In Babylon' will take you on a hi-fi journey around the world in 57 minutes without having to leave the comfort of your own home.
