By the time I finished my first listen of this album, my face muscles were exhausted due to the constant grining, yes "Man With A Movie Camera" is one of those albums that will leave you so utterly flabbergasted you'll need a a bottle of water for every listen! From the soothing transitions of "Reel Life (Evolution II)" to the haunting "All Things To All Men", the album is designed with precision, to take your breath away.
Its epic presentation is what makes each listen so amazing. The instruments blend in a beautifully flowing and seamless manner with laid back yet powerful soulful beats. Whether you're into jazz or not, Cinematic Orchestra have pulled off something thats universal to anyone who appreciates good music. Listen to it now and be amazed over and over again!

I was lucky enough to see the live performance in Manchester last month, and I've got to say that it was one of the best gigs I've ever seen. What's even better is that the quality of the live music is just as strong as that on the CD! An amazing group of musicians and creatives who deserve a good hard pat on the back. If you want the hairs on the back of your neck to stand on end, order it now. Cleverly composed jazz/funk blends, string swells to bring a tear to your eye, sparing complimenting samples and sounds, the best tenner I've ever parted with! Add it to your basket and your ears will love you forever! :0)

Wow, what can I say? This is simply gorgeous music. Having not ever been a great fan of jazz, I was increedibely impressed by this. I own their first two albums (both growers, and both excellent) and went along to see them live, as recommended by Gilles Peterson. They projected the film of the title (1920s Russian silent movie) onto a screen and then played the soundtrack live. It was, in a word, awesome. Upbeat and mellow in equal measures, and these guys can play their instruments!
The album features other versions of their older tracks, plus some new ones and a lot of incidental music. Definitely also worth buying the DVD for the full aural/visual experience.

Unlike anything I've heard for years: has a the technical jazz grounding of musicians like Tommy Smith ("Spartacus", etc.), the spontaneity and originality of Chris Bowden, and the modern feel of some work by Jazzanova and others.
Cool, breezy, flowing, rhythm, beats, intense, liquid, syncopated. You'll find your self being drawn in and carried away within moments. Mixtures of steady and gentle rhythms with fiery and powerful top-lines; careful and solid construction; originality and drive. Whether you like jazz, like lounge, like beats; want to dance, want to chill; and fan of real music will be all over this.
I have recommended this album to everyone I know - my friends, my colleagues, random people in record stores, my mother(!). You will want to play this over and over again, louder and louder, blast it from the top of your building. It could be the new Jazz.

A brilliant purchase - having seen the Cinematic Orchestra live years ago, I'd somehow managed to overlook this superb CD. Since it's their best record in my (recently updated) opinion, I feel pretty daft.

Smooth modern jazz influences combined with trip-hop textures, the Man With The Movie Camera is an excellent album, and I'd recommend it to anyone - particularly fans of jazz, Portishead, early Goldfrapp or Sneaker Pimps.

Cinematic Orchestra quite simply put make this world seem to be a much better place than it often is through their music. Simple honesty, beauty, sincerity, strength - this music transcends words. As Claude Debussy said in early 20th century: 'Music is the space between the notes'. Cinematics have mastered this. Music and art collide.

The Orchestra are new to me but very pleasant. Bit like the Hidden Orchestra the sounds are interesting and pleasant but don't expect a lot to happen. It all kind of drifts along - no obvious stand-out tracks.

The Cinematics do it again.
This album isn't, for me, as endlessly listenable as their previous two - I mean it IS but not enough new stuff after their second album.
Still romps five stars though cos it's utterly sublime.
With Evolution, Man with the Movie Camera and one or two others having been recorded again following their release on Everyday, there was a touch of sadness at not having more new tunes to listen to again and again and again.
Still, they are such an amazing group of musicians that it's still one hell of a brilliant album.
Forget some of the more pretentious stuff you get in reviews on this site.
The Cinematic Orchestra really are the freshest bunch of talent, amazing musicians, all on the same wavelength. Their music is so darned good, yes the hairs DO stand on the back of my neck frequently (and not cos I rub a balloon for 5 minutes and hold it close by).
Depending on what mood you're in, they rock, they're ultra rhythmic, they're mellow, they're funky, they drop BIG beats or they're simply the orchestrators (hur hur) of colossal music.
And I'm not some closetted jazz freak - my musical arousal has gone Punk, Ambient, Techno, Acid, House, Jungle, Hip Hop etc etc.
