Product Description

From the moment they first informally congregated at the third and final Real World Recording Week in 1995, it was clear that the group of European and West African musicians who would later answer to the name Afro Celt Sound System would become one of Real World's totemic acts who embodied the label's border-less, restriction-free ways. 'Further In Time', released in 2001, is the Afro Celts' third album, and creates a musical world that brings alive the talents of an additional six members and over twenty guests, including vocalists Robert Plant and Peter Gabriel. The world created on 'Further In Time' is where voices from African, Irish and Welsh traditions blaze into a future informed by pop craft, rock power and dance euphoria; where the thunderous rhythms of the Punjabi region engage in dialogue with the African talking drum; where the sounds of Morocco and Eastern Europe are woven through cutting edge psychedelic club soundscapes and disarmingly sharp, disciplined songwriting.

Ok..after Vol. 1 they had set a very tough act to follow. And Vol 2 did not make muster. And neither did Vol 3 at first. But give it a chance and it is actualy pretty damned good. Ignore the Peter Gabriel track (I may be a fan of his but the track is a pure Gabriel sound and not at all AFCS. If I want Gabriel, I buy Gabriel) and perhaps wonder where Robert Plant enters the equation of AfroCelt; a bit leftfield that one I'm afraid! Just cannot see the connection, although the track ain't bad after a while.
Otherwise just hear a maturing drum 'n bass sound to the band which remains faithful to their original black/celtic rhythms. May innevitably lack the innovative shock to the system that Vol 1 gave us; is a massive leap ahead from a v. poor Vol 2; simply an album that gets better after each hearing.
So then Iarla et al...when is Vol 4 due? And when do we get a real UK tour?

Having bought the single, "When You're Falling" on the back of Peter Gabriel's involvement, and having just heard the album (on the 180g Simply Vinyl double-LP version), I can't see why critics are treating this album as a disappoitment. Musically - there's nothing wrong with it!!!
Yes, it is fairly beat-heavy, but what grabs your attention is not the lukewarm techno influence but the deep atmosphere of the music. I'm not a fond lover of techno/dance, but this album offers more than just a collection of beats. In every sense, the band lives up to its name - the music has all the spirit, charm and vivality you expect from African and Celtic music. I reckon their fans would search for nothing less.
Peter Gabriel's contribution on "When You're Falling" is by no means bland - it's catchy, but not in a commercial sense. Just a well-written song that would make a good single - pity it didn't make a big impact.
In summary - if you're looking for contemporary world-fusion that is accurate and entertaining... look no further! I recommend it if you like latter-day Peter Gabriel (his 2000 album "OVO" for example) or have a general interest in his Realworld catalogue.
Go for it!

Haveing previously heard and bought vol 1& 2, further in time seems to be a natural progression. The affro and celtic sounds are still very much in evidence, more real drums and less programing would be nice but this is still a very powerful and moveing album. Although I am not usually a great fan of dance music, ACSS seem to have struck a cord in me and now find myself longing for more of the same. I await vol 4 with eagerness.

Better than 1999's Volume 2 and more accessible than the Afro Celts' classic debut, Further in Time is a world fusion marvel. From "North 1 &2," the 10-minute epic that opens the record, to "Onwards," the quiet but intense closing track, the Afro Celts' latest offering reveals new layers and dimensions with each spin. "When You're Falling" features some great vocal interplay between Peter Gabriel and Iarla O'Lionaird, and "Colossus" marries aggressive programming with guitar, bouzouki, and fiddle. One of the most impressive tracks is "Lagan," featuring a primal, almost-oppressive beat overlaid with cathedral-like sounds and Iarla's Celtic wail. "Shadowman" turns the African element up a notch with Demba Barry's energetic raps. The album falters only slightly with "Life Begin Again" - an excellent song in its own right, but marred slightly by the presence of Robert Plant (this is the Afro Celt Sound System, after all, not the Aging Dinosaur Rocker Sound System). "Go On Through" is an Irish-tinged love song with lyrics in both Gaelic and English, and things really pick up again with the beautiful "Persistence of Memory." The final two tracks, "Silken Whip" and "Onwards," are classic Afro Celts, with the latter featuring another great round of African vocals courtesy of N'Faly Kouyate. You can't go wrong with this album... it's incredible.

Having enjoyed ACSS Vol 1 & 2 over the years I was overjoyed to hear that Vol 3 was due for release. After reading the review my enthusiasm was somewhat reduced.
It was with a little doubt that I pressed play on the CD player and sat back to listen.
ACSS have lost nothing of what has gone before, the energy, the melodies, the music, the rythmns and the feeling of top class muscisians enjoying themselves really comes across on what is my Album of the year so far (closely followed by Spearhead "Stay Human" and Eat Static "In the Nude"). This is also helped by fantastic production and engineering.
Further in Time might just be the Album that finally brings ACSS to a wider audience and a single release of a standout track such as "Shadowman" would help although good performances from messers Gabriel and Plant will go some way to ensure this.
Excellent Stuff now where can I see them live this year!
Very Good Indeed and it does exactly what it says on the Tin

A very odd blend of ACSS, Gabriel and Plant which does actually grow on you. I loved the first two albums and this album I feel is as good. It justs takes time to grow on you. Even so Peter Gabriel does put too much of his own stamp on the tracks he vocalises on. Fine foot stomping blend of celtic and afro dancey folk music. I disagree with the previous comments about having less celtic sounds and discordant blend of music styles - Afro Celtic Sound System has already proven the music works!!!! A great album, uplifting and positive which will give it the power to overcome the minority of people who cannot grasp what ACSS are trying to do and give it a poor rating. Judge for yourself, just give it a bit of time. I absolutely love the last track featuring Plant. Special......
