Ok, Let's say you don't like the idea of lyrics over the chilled Bonobo beats that we are accustomed to, the bonus second disc features the instrumental versions of all previously vocalised tracks on the album, a very pleasing touch.
Lyrics or no Lyrics, lets get down to the beats; mysterious eastern sounding masterpieces such as Ketto, the upbeat summery feeling of The Fever, the dark, brooding but jazzy nature of "Between the Lines". This album covers it all and exceedingly well.
Big Thumbs up for Bonobo, keep your expectations high for already-converted followers, and for newcomers, I would recommend this album if you enjoy artists such as Quantic, Lemon Jelly, Massive Attack or even DJ Shadow.
For days to come from a few years ago , I found the tempoe jazzier and the whole sound oozing a smokey 50's flavour so similar in many ways to The Cinematic orchestra's neo jazz classic Motion the ultimate late night lounge album. Days to come is ideal for the after hours after club summer windown zone. Bajka's unique vocals are superb, An exotic female voice that was featured on Beanfield album Seek. The vibes vary from bosa nova grooves ,to sleek jazzy strums and polished horns and even eighties jazz funk , with a downtempoe aura that slightly elevates to the catchy mid tempoe shuffler Night life. Days to come is without doubt one to merge with there label mates The Cinematics Motion, I could have easilly thought the track "On Your Marks " was a continuation of Motions "Ode to the big sea" Days to Come is for your special late night summer pre-dawn wind down treat it's a downtempoe jazzy collection , for lovers of Air, Zero 7 and even Thivery Corp they might find this to jazzy. The bonus instrumentals are an excellent . I'm out to get the rest of Bonobo's back catalogue.
The title track "Days To Come" is an infectious Trip-Hop track featuring a vocalist called Bajka who has a sweet and intriguing quality to her voice. "Between The Lines", a similar track with a heavier beat, also features this singer and is nearly as good. Two solidly composed instrumentals follow, "The Fever" and "Ketto", which are pleasant but nothing more. The highlight of the album is the third track sung by Bajka "Nightlife" which has a catchy rhythm and wonderful string arrangements creating a captivating atmosphere. "Transition 94" is quite an interesting instrumental with some experimental Jazz elements but "On Your Mark" is again pleasant but not original enough to make a mark. "If You Stayed Over", featuring a male vocalist called Fink is quite a dark and sombre song with heavy Trip-Hop beats and interesting arrangements. "Walk In The Sky" features Bajka again and is very suave whilst the final track "Recurring" is another peaceful instrumental. The album also has a second disc that includes instrumental versions of all the tracks that feature vocals on the first disc as well as a further instrumental called "Hatoa".
Overall, "Days To Come" is a very good album from Bonobo as it is interesting enough to allow the listener to relax for a moment. Some of the instrumental tracks could be a little more original but the songs which include singers compensate for this lack of variety. The blend of genres and sounds works in Bonobo's favour, making "Days To Come" is a very strong release. However, it could have been made even stronger had all the tracks been accompanied by vocals.
