This review is from: Naim Edge Records: Amazon Sampler (MP3 Download)
The Naim Edge Sampler actually contains quite a wide range of music. The production is great (as benefits a record bearing the name of a hi-fi company) and there a wide selection here, from a fingerpicked ballad called Don't Say a Word by Phantom Limb to a jazz rock freak out called Dbst by trioVD
I enjoyed a lot of these tracks but I'll list some of my favourites. There was a talking blues about violence in the city called Let My People Go by Huey and The New Yorkers, which reminded me of Faith No More or the song Word Up. What is Beauty by Stuart McCallum samples Indian philosopher Krisnamurti's mediation on beauty and creates a spacey ambient background of synths that is wonderfully relaxing to listen to. Who Needs em Anyway by Boy Com brings a southern rock vibe to a tale of school bullies, and OcDC by Get the blessing sounds like a modern Peter Gun by way of Miles Davis. The only one I couldn't get on with was My Narrow Man (Girl After Shower Remix), which seemed a bit repetitive, but thats the nature of samplers I guess.
If you fancy trying some new music and your taste covers folk, rock, electronica and Jazz you could do worse than pickup this sampler.
