Product Description

Product Description

Debut studio album by the British R&B artist. Debuting at #2 in the UK Albums Chart, it includes the singles 'Let the Sun Shine', 'Earthquake' (featuring Tinie Tempah), 'Last Time' and 'Express Yourself'.

BBC Review

Timothy McKenzie, AKA Labrinth, has already established himself as an in-demand, trend-surfing producer, aiding the ascension of many an artist including Tinie Tempah and Wretch 32, as well as on upcoming projects from Usher and Cheryl Cole. With perhaps the exception of Yasmin’s unspeakably beige Finish Line, Labrinth is clearly a man who understands the craft of the mixing desk.

So while Labrinth has a solid foundation on which to build his solo career, stepping from the comfort of the studio into the harsh glare of the spotlight is no easy transition. But Electronic Earth is not just a producer’s vanity project – this is Labrinth doggedly cementing himself as an artist. When fellow desk-maestros have released their own albums as headliners (Timbaland, Mark Ronson or Richard X, for example), they tend to be heavily laden with collaborations. Electronic Earth, by comparison, boasts just two slots for featured artists – in this instance, Emeli Sandé and Tinie Tempah.

With the weight of Simon Cowell behind him, an impressive writing and production discography, and a hefty profile, Labrinth could have called in any number of favours. Instead, he’s putting himself front-and-centre with no-one to hold his hand. His arrangements are brave, even cheeky – we’ve all heard the immense, volatile beats of Earthquake mercilessly wiped for a Gregorian chant breakdown, and the chutzpah doesn’t end there. Climb on Board sees playful piano racing against a drum‘n’bass beat, while Sundown somehow interpolates Big Yellow Taxi into its staid, brooding buzz to great effect.

As a vocalist, he may not possess a belter’s pipes, but there’s a gravelly, uniquely soulful quality that carries its own merits. Sadly, it’s all too often lost to the hammering use of Auto-Tune, which may be in keeping with the genre but is a touch too prevalent within the sphere of the album.

There’s no denying the ability to conjure up huge electronic landscapes, of which there are a few good examples here. And while Labrinth makes the right kind of noise, and provides a window into himself as an artist, at a fleeting 10 tracks Electronic Earth doesn’t exactly give away the farm. But it feels as though it’s a measured dose rather than a shortfall, as though he’s intentionally leaving fans wanting more. If Electronic Earth is anything to go by, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to satiate them for some time to come.

I really enjoyed this album and have been listening to it on repeat for a few days on my journeys to and from work. It has a kind of electronic/ techno vibe to it which, if you are a fan of Tinie Tempah, is worth checking out. I particularly like the tracks Earthquake and Express Yourself, though there isn't a bad track on the album. If I had any criticism it's that there should have been one or two additional tracks. What definitely comes across to me is that Labrinth is a really nice guy, geniunely caring and has a real passion for music and isn't interested in fame. In this respect he stands out from others in the business. Although the album is 'explicit', I didn't notice any bad language and he certainly doesn'y call women 'b*tches' or 'h*es' like some do. He's young, talented, refreshing and unique. All in all, a fantastic album.

I say a mixed bag not becuase of a mix of quality/poor songs, but because of the varied selection of genres covered by Labrinth in this album.

With a number of the singles finding their way in to the charts before the albums release, I was eagerly anticipating my first listen. I was pleasantly surprised as I made my way through the album, with big songs like "Earthquake" mixed in with more relaxed tracks like his other chart release "Let The Sun Shine".

On the whole I was quite pleased with the final result, even though it felt a little bit more like a random collection of songs than a crafted album!

One of those records you'll want to listen to again, straight after the last track.

Some of the lyrics are a bit naff but the detail in the production is awesome.

Well worth a listen!

Oh and turn Track 1 up LOUD!

Bought for my wife for Christmas as she likes the song with Emile Sande, that song is good the rest so so there are no other standout tracks. if you also like the song with Emile Sande I would first look at her latest Cd and if that song is one there buy that one and not this

I love the single 'Beneath your beautiful' it was innovative, melodic and inspirational. But there is nothing else like it on the album.
I am going to have to start just buying single tracks as this was a waste of money.

Heard this on Jules Holland and thought it sounded like it might be an interesting jazzy elctronic kind of thing. Turns out it is more reasonably characterised as the interesting end of pop really. There is some quirkily overdone synth bits borrowed from the 80's and put in a more contemproary setting, but it doesn't really work I'm afraid.

Lab is just Fab. What I find interesting is the diversity of sound. He does not confine himself to one genre, even though he would still be good. he songs, I figure, are very good. He's an amazing artist

I'd only heard Labrinth featuring alongside Tinie Tempah in 'Frisky' a song he had also produced. Also had seen him on Never Mind the Buzzcocks on the BBC and he seemed like a good bloke and so when I saw this album I thought I'd give it a go and boy, was I not disappointed with my choice.
This is a great album with not a single track of the 10 that I didn't like, there are a few really strong tracks on there 'Earthquake', 'Last Time' and 'Express Yourself' my personal favourites but the other 7 are really strong as well in my book and I would fully recommend this album to any who are interested in buying it.
