So whats WOW's new CD like and what guise does this "subtle change" present itself to us the listening public??
Well, like their peer B.T. WOW have adopted a more vocal approach to their music with no less than four songs containing the beautiful, sultry and enchanting voice of Divi. Difference here being that whilst BT is the MASTER of modern dance/trance music, somehow male vocals do not sit well in this genre, whereas female vocals only enhance the music and the vibe (get Kirsty hawkshaw back BT!) And thus the change! With "chillout" rapidly replacing hard core dance music as the new "mainstream", so WOW have adopted a more laid back, harmonic approach to their music. "Dont forget me" is an all out love ballad as is "anything but you", but both still retain an "edge" to them which in my opinion lifts them to a class above your run of the mill "chillout". Hard core fans do not dismay! "Fear" quickly sees a return to a more typical thumping drum and bass WOW sound - again with Divi's devine (and I mean divine!) voice providing a little light relief! There is still plenty of drums, sampled sax (WOW trademark) and sweeping strings to keep us all amused!
The remix bonus CD is well above average with some stirling retakes on the best tracks! I love this CD and I truly admire Nick and Jody. Why no 5 stars then??? Well, I LOVE the CD, but there is only one tiny problem. WOW's last CD "Intensify" was a recording that kept the listener on edge throughout - quitre simply the album had many bolts of pure energy to match Hybrids "wider angle" -your ears literally were torn apart from start to finish!!......whilst "Dont look now" enetertains, relaxes and embraces you like an early morning shower, "intensify" was a trip down Niagra falls!! Still buy it, listen to it, enjoy it - miles above 90% of any new release I can think of this side of the summer! Oh, and WOW - PLEASE PLAY IT LIVE!
The album continues along a similar theme; alternating between beautiful vocal tracks and more bangin dancehall tracks, and then rounds off with some quality extended instumentals - special mention to Killa.
Way Out West appear to have a distinctive sound, but not quirky or noisy - I think it's just the sound of quality progressive house. Their previous two albums were both excellent and this release should hopefully see them finally hit the big time...now what time is Jody Wisternoff playing at the club where I work tomorrow night? :D
Note: I didn't even mention the bonus mix CD. Simply put, it's a comprehensive collection of detailed, mellow progressive house; think Cafe Del Mar + a few BPM...enjoy!
Several tracks feature a new female vocalist. Omi, whose sultry tones soften their edge somewhat, gives the band a more commercial sound (should we describe them as a band nowadays, instead of 2 dj's working in the studio? I think the cd cover is enough of a clue!)
The "deeper" tracks are still here - nothing to match 'Domination' I'm afraid to say, but still a few corkers: "Apollo" is the stand-out here, followed by "Killa" and album closer "Absinthe Dreams".
Some devotees may be put off by the slight change of direction and reliance on one vocalist, but the tracks stand up in their own right and the overall feel sticks to the WOW formula: soft, low-key tunes punctuated by the harder, kick-arse riffs.
I've only had it a couple of days but it's a real grower. WOW fans have had to wait quite some time for new material, so I'm pleased to say it was worth the wait.
