After patiently waiting for the arrival of this much anticipated fifth studio album for several months I have to report that it was a complete anti-climax! The album appears to have been written to advertise the bands two new arrivals and the whole thing seems to be softened down from what we are used to from the worlds finest live dance act. The heart and soul of the group is Maxi Jazz and he simply doesn't feature enough, instead an array of guest vocalists dominate the album. Having said that, the album does have a decent opening with single Bombs but is followed by hideous track Spiders, Crocodiles & Kryptonite which not only contains farcical child-like lyrics and Robert Smith guesting which I hated, but ends with an annoying baby talking segment which is embarrassing to say the least. Music Matters is better but hardly sticks in the memory, this is followed by instrumental Nate's Tune and I Hope which has more references to children and seems to end just as it is getting going and then Last This Day which sounds like a lullaby and features Dido (Oh please let it end) Things start to look up when To All New Arrivals kicks in but again the lyrics are bizarre, Maxi reeling off facts about poverty and child diseases, its like a television appeal for help. Hope & Glory which is a far more memorable track in a more uplifting mood raises the tempo but once again has baby voices tagged on the end, why? A Kind of Peace features the albums sixth guest vocalist Cat Power and then comes The Man In You which in my opinion is the best track here, its original, funky and has Maxi's best vocals, I like this tune. Closing track Emergency is Ok too but again Maxi is missing.Read more ›

Don't pay any attention to these other reviews. It's a music CD not a political manifesto for a country's financial development!! Half these 'reviewers' who want to appear the intelligentsia of music can't even spell or punctuate! Some intelligence eh?

It's a good music CD to play in the background. Nice rhythms and harmony changes.

Makes my toe tap and my spirit relax.

Thanks Faithless. Good music.

I understand as well as anyone that Faithless are no longer the club busting dance band that we knew in the 1990s. The band are maturing as musicans and taking their music into different directions from what they have achieved previously. However, and this is quite a big point, this album does not develop their style from No Roots.

No Roots signalled a move to a more melodic tone with more instrumentals and an increased participation from outside artists to the Faithless story. Different styles of music were experimented with and in my opinion they pulled off a change in direction with No Roots without losing what made Faithless popular. What I feel with To All New Arrivals is that they've lost sight of what they want to achieve: the album congratulates each band member on their own personal experiences too much whether from having a child to their views on politics.

Neither does the album move Faithless on musically. Nate's Tune which is a rare highlight on the album, could have fitted in on Sunday 8PM or No Roots, quite easily. Spiders, Crocodiles and Kryptonite is quite simply one of the weakest songs the band have ever written. Bombs goes back to the point I made above: Maxi Jazz congratulates himself on being right about Iraq but why does he have to emphasis this point? The early Faithless albums had a subtle and understandable point but it was not overtly political. I do not need Maxi Jazz telling me about Iraq; it's there for all of us to see with out own eyes.

However there are some plus points: A Kind of Peace is the strongest track on the album, deversedly so. Cat Power provides a beautiful, complimentary, voice to the music and sets a nice downbeat sound for the end of the album.

I agree with other reviews elsewhere and, after listening to this several times, I actually returned it, and thats never happened before with a Faithless album. I have followed them from the beginning, eagerly awaiting each new release, same thing here, but I was gutted. Without trying to sound too much like the anti-christ, I can cope with several songs about babies...but nearly every track? no, it's too much. The whole album sounds like having a Children in need TV special rammed down your throat. Surely this is not what Faithless are about? ok, maybe it is now. If that's the case then they should have split up as originally planned if this is the best they can do.

The over-reliance on Dido is another factor and her track is absolutely horrendous. Elsewhere only "Music Matters" sounds like the Faithless of old however, as usual, even this ends before it has a chance to really get going. Faithless have lost track of what made them so special, and popular.

Maybe next time? we'll see. With "No Roots" Faithless tested my patience, with "To All New Arrivals" it has snapped and i've lost interest.

Just a thought: They should bring back Jamie and Zoe Johnston and dump the "chill-out" feel to their most recent work, the market is already flooded with these types of albums, usually ending up in the bargain bins. In 3 months time, "To All New Arrivals" will also be there.
