Zero 7 keyboard-supremo Neil Cowley hooks up with Blues & Soul journalist Ben Mynott for The Facts and the Dreams, the album follow-up to 2001's acclaimed single "Nocturnal Beats". In the process they notch up yet another collection of downbeat hits for the Bar De Lune imprint.

Decorating shuffling percussion with lashings of eased instrumentation and star-gazing keys, this 10-track outing is true to the duo's reputation. Breaking the pattern of soft-cornered groove therapy with an occasional slice of cinematica, the glacial pianos of Barney Fade offer the most obvious reflection of the title's reference to an obscure 1920s book on German architecture. Though ambitious, these soundtracked slivers are outgunned by the barrage of blissful, wandering Rhodes, brass honks and acidic bassline burbles that make up most of the intricate arrangements here.

The Facts and the Dreams is sure to satisfy those who have in the past sought solace from the likes of Kinobe, Bent and Blue States. --Kingsley Marshall

Brilliant! Wonderful vibes, melodies and arrangements. The best thing since Zero 7...and we should know why.
Thanks to the musicians! This music will make you travel and please your soul, the Fender Rhodes is caressing, the strings arrangements subtle, the grooves gentle, the bass lines make you sway....a music to make you feel good and reconciliate you with the world.I've put them between Erik Satie and AIR in my library, where will you have them?

I first heard Robert Elms play this on his BBC London show, but have since heard Patrick Forge play it on Kiss Fm and even heard Rainer Truby play it while I was in Munich with the girlfriend!
The album "The Facts and the Dreams" is a gorgeous album - simple as that. From start to finish, the album oozes that Zero 7 class and quality that made them so succesful, but this album is even more accessible than theirs!! "Hoop Dreams" is an instant classic, but the album is littered with soundtrack and downtempo gems ("Song Of Departure" in particular is amazing).
It isn't very often you hear an album that not only keeps your interest right from the start, but this album genuinely moves you as well. It's a wonderful journey and those who bought Zero 7 and chilled stuff like that, should immediately take the trip too!
(the missus loves it too!)
BUY IT!

What an album! I bought this after noticing it was worked on by one of the guys from Zero 7, whose album 'Simple Things' I loved last year.
Although different from 'Simple Things' in its lack of vocals, this album really is sublimely beautiful. I would compare it with the likes of Bonobo and Quantic, just hugely relaxing, chilled beats.
There is no song I would skip, and Undercurrent, with its flowing water and tranquil beat is my favourite.
I would really recommend this album if you are into things like Bonobo, Air, Thievery Corporation and Blue States. BUY IT!

Timeless high quality chill-out to relax to and dream. Each track is well produced, memorable and sometimes haunting. I would definitely recommend it for those who like cool chill-out/bar vibes.
