This unlikely collaboration have produced an album that's got some excellent tracks and is well worth a listen. Four and a bit stars from me - I like all of it and love some of it.

I've listened to, and like, a lot of what Marconi Union have done. Though I've been aware of Jah Wobble and what he's done, I'm a good deal less familiar with his music. So I came to this wondering just what the purveyors of superior ambient soundscapes would get from a collaboration with someone the previous reviewer has described as a 'post-punk dub bassman'. And yes, I did think it an unlikely match.

I shouldn't have worried though as what's here is always listenable. Though some of the tracks sound as though they've been put down by one part of the collaboration and the other has just chipped in with a contribution, even then the tracks are decent and very listenable. But the album contains some gems - the second, fourth and last tracks - that sound much greater than the sum of their perhaps unlikely parts. And here's the real surprise, for me; neither the bass-led dub nor ambient soundscapes for which the collaborators are rightly famous are what you'd call up-tempo, but the tracks that work best here are the faster ones. That's something I certainly wasn't expecting.

The product description mentions that the album has a feel of continental Europe about it and yes, it does. That may not make sense until you've heard it, of course but should I ever find myself with a long trip down an autobahn this would be the perfect soundtrack to it.

Try it. It's unlikely, but it works.

The decision to work together on this album was absolutely inspired on the part of both Jah Wobble and Marconi Union. Delicious music, superbly recorded on Wobble's own 30 Hertz label, rewards being played over and over again (on the best speakers or headphones you can afford). Each time, new subtleties reveal themselves, especially in Wobble's sinuous grooves, where his patterns evolve often so gradually that you'd be hard put to be sure how he actually gets from point A to point B. The Marconi Union sound is unmistakably their own, yet the addition of this extraordinary electric bass playing from Jan Wobble opens up a dimension that was probably always there, but which remained largely unheard. This is a truly essential album, and I truly hope it will be the first of many from this collaboration.

Being a long-term Wobbler I was looking forward to listening to this and have not been disappointed. I must admit to preferring his more dub-orientated work, but this will do just fine. Hadn't heard of Marconi Union before but they dovetail in nicely with the man's sinuous basslines. 'Reality crash' and 'Terminus' are highlights for me. Could have done without the spoken poem on 'The rain has stopped' however; it spoils the flow of an otherwise interesting instrumental album.

Was more than curious upon hearing of this meet-up between the Union and Mr Wobble, and decided to purchase/investigate el pronto. Whilst keeping more in tune with MU's 'Different Colours' or perhaps 'A Lost Connection' it adds Wobble's bass in a more understated perhaps subtle way but one is aware of it bubbling away and occasionaly heading up but not in the mould of his solo work or of course on PiL's post-punk landmark 'Metal Box'. But still the electronica soundscape enthralls and sucks you in, ended up playing it 3 times driving south on the M6 before leaving it a few days then trying it late at night at home, then knew it was a work of sublime genius, takes you on a journey similar to Boards of Canada's recent 'Tomorrows Harvest', say no more.
