FAITHLESS - REVERENCE CD 12 TRACKS (61140)
It still sets the strobes blazing in your head 12 years on. Indeed, absolutely anyone who found themselves on a dancefloor in 1996 must have reached for the lights at least once as the synth arpeggio kicked in after Maxi Jazz had ominously muttered "I can't get no sleep" on Faithless' Insomnia. For at a time when clubland was still in the grip of handbag house Insomnia stood out like Banquo's ghost at a party of glammed-up club bunnies. A song which celebrated not the euphoria on the dancefloor but warned of the shaking night-terrors that awaited you when you got back home, yet did so within a track that was an overwhelming sensory rush in itself.
However, like New Order - who also managed to articulate desperation and despair within banging peak-time grooves - Faithless also crossed over to people whose only experience of insomnia came from a surfeit of cheese rather than anything stronger before bedtime. Although later albums like 2004's No Roots and 2006's To All New Arrivals would see Faithless become increasingly formulaic as they capitalised on their status as a stadium techno group for ageing ravers, 1996's Reverence shows how multi-faceted a so-called 'dance' album can be. That's largely down to the different personalities involved - with DJ Sister Bliss and production lynchpin Rollo clearly driving the pure dancefloor tracks like Insomnia and Salva Mea, whilst Maxi Jazz brings his soundsystem heritage with Soul II Soul and a certain throaty gravitas to the title track and the dubby Dirty Ol' Man.
Even Rollo's sister Dido shines on her guest vocals on Flowerstand Man, its open-hearted honesty standing in contrast to the Bridget Jones ballads she would make her millions with. But perhaps the two best moments come from Faithless' lost member, Jamie Catto, who invests the eerie chamber music of Angeline and the beautiful acoustic lament Don't Leave with a vulnerable melancholy notably missing from the albums which followed his departure after 1998's Sunday 8pm, when hand-wringing platitudes and ponderous trance started to level the emotional and musical peaks and troughs that made Reverence a truly revelatory debut. --Paul Clarke

Just picture the scene. It's the 4th April 1996. It's my 30th birthday... I'm living in London town. Prisons are overcrowded and the NHS is at breaking point. (Sounds familiar!). House prices are on the rise after the recession and interest rates have recovered from the ERM debacle. A future Prime Minister was there to see it all happen and take note. (Oops!). From Milton Keynes in the North to Croydon in the South I'd travelled around enjoying my anonymity. Not in public life in those days. The best team in United's history is emerging. Beckham is bending it like only Beckham could. Cantona is running the show. Giggs is defying human physiology and running as fast side ways as he could going forward.. As the title of this review suggests another Conservative back bench rebellion was stirring, but at least this just lead to Blair and Brown not a rudderless ship about to be cut adrift with no hope of rescue. Hard breakfast. United are about to win the double. The cup final is won before kick off due to some Armani gear from Merseyside never to be repeated and another strike from Cantona. Cometh the hour... The league was never a contest for this United team. 4 days later Faithless release their debut album "Revereance". The musical establishment were unsure what to make of it at first. Unique in it's way, this album challenged convention. Is it a metaphorical musical basket case or are the musical powers that be just joining force and doing what they need to do to protect their lack of judgement being exposed by dissing Faithless as yet another new musical irrelevance. The public are not fooled. When listening to the album it's clear the establishment line has serious issues. What is it they're trying to hide anyway? Put up or shut up they say.They see the album for what it is. The start of a glorious 20 year journey. But where will it end. Time would tell. Listening to it, you a draw to commit one of the 7 deadly sins - greed. You want more. Enough is never enough. However, we have to wait to September 1998 for the next instalment. "Sunday 8pm" by Faithless. West Sussex is my world by this time preparing for the millennium. Boy, does the inland revenue (as it's called then) have some complicated systems. Still the bug has to go or it's apocalypse now all over again, but only in a financial sense. A Brandoesque performance is needed. Serene. God works in funny ways, (He's was up front for United in those days as well) but just like the overcrowded prisons and underfunded NHS there's no dangerous quick fix to the millennium bug. It's pains taking work. A serious headache for many. Permanent insomnia for a few. What would someone living in 2017 say about Reverence 20 years after it's release? What would history tell us about it? Well it stands the test of time and is a relevant now as it was then. If only the Spice Boys would have listened to this before the cup final in '96 they might have stood a chance. Style over substance, clearly a recipe for disaster.

well, what can i say but wow. this cd obviouly isn't rated highly enough anywhere, because i only found out about it a couple of months ago. every track oozes class, from the relative fast beats of insomnia, one of the best dance tracks ever written, to the chilled out and mellow vibes of track 2, to the now famous trigger happy tv track. every track is different, but each one in their own right deserves attention and respect. this is one of those albums where you feel guilty if you have a fake copy, because the artist has done so well, that they deserve evey penny they get for the album. buy it, for a cd that will blow your mind. one of the few albums where every track is classy.

A multitude of musical styles adorn this fine album.Three particular tracks stand out; Insomnia, Salva Mea and Reverence are all club classics, all of which make fantastic listening. Don't Leave is a soulful slow ballad, and the spoken Rap-style lyrics of If Lovin' you is Wrong and Dirty Ol' Man can't fail to raise a smile. I have never before listened to an album that combine tracks that include ballads, dance music, rap,house,blues and the odd classical segment. This sounds like a recipe for an absolute disaster, the reality is that this is an album that will become a classic.If I had to describe this album in a short phrase I would say "I love this album but I'm not sure why"? Buy it and see for yourself.

WOW!!!!! This album has an absolutley amazing range of music but it is definatley the best chill out album in the world! There's some dance music; Salva Mea, Insomnia, and Drifting away, some rap, and 100% of music that will be classic some day! Faithless, a group made up of, Maxi Jaxx, Jamie Catto, Sister Bliss, and Rollo (brother of better known artist Dido) have made an album that is really inspirational, and dont be put off by the beginning of some songs, they change dramatically after the intro. You have to listen to this all the way through, and once you have, you'll be glad you bought it and only wish you had their other albums!!! Whatever happens, BUY THIS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
