5.0 out of 5 stars Attention shouldn't wane, 4 Jun 2004
This review is from: Intensify (Audio CD)
While not quite as significant as their debut, this album is hardly a disappointment. Offering variation and imagination through the extent of the LP, Intensify is not for the faint of heart. All the grooves are inspirationally and thoughtfully crafted with meticulous detail, and you are guaranteed to hear something new every time you listen. The layers are thick and the many elements that make up these layers (pan flutes, sitars, soaring pads, vocals, bass guitars, live drum kits, harps, trumpets, monstrous basslines, and much more) combine to create lush tapestries of sound. Way out West may be coined a trance or progressive house outfit, but their ability to infuse organic instrumentation with electronic sounds with such ease is second-to-none. Thanks to this skill, Intensify is filled to the brim with soul, and will, subsequently, not grow old with repeated listens in even a year's time. In fact, it will become a staple in your cd collection for years to come. Definitely a classic in the making and not to be missed by connoisseurs of well-crafted electronic music. With remixes for 70+ artists under their belt and several high profile collaborations (Art of Noise & BT), a new album is scheduled for release in August of 2004. They're not about to stop. Move over Hybrid and give WOW some breathing room, Distinctive...WOW were pushing out progressive breakbeats while Hybrid was making cheeky Pink Floyd remixes. ;)
