No need to order the CD version if you buy the vinyl version as it comes supplied with a copy of the album on CD. so you get the 4-piece vinyl in a nice gatefold sleeve as well as the 11-tracks on CD. The vinyl has only 9-tracks. I personally don't mind having the extra copy of the CD that I bought at the time of ordering the vinyl version, I just wished Amazon knew about the free album that was with the vinyl version. It's a splendid package but do watch out for these hidden free CD's with a lot of the new Drum 'n' Bass packs. It happens a lot from time to time. Especially on the Hospital label.

London Elektricity is amazzingly consistent at creating great D&B tunes, the sound is so rich and deep that it feels great as well as sounds great.
It's clearly a progression from earlier work, and sticking with the same vocalist does add a level of added continuity. The good news is that her voice is superb and you want all the vocals to be sung by her.
The album manages to be deep, uplifting and totally engaging.
if you liked previous LE stuff, just buy it, you won't regret it.

Buy the 4-piece vinyl pack and get the 11-track album completely free. The 9-track vinyl version cased in a lovely gatefold sleeve has a copy of the 11-track CD album in with it, so no need to buy another copy on CD.

A very good album from London Elektricity which I've played several times already today since receiving it this morning.

Defintitely the best to date. This album ranks amongst the best electronic albums released in the past 12 months. Even better thant he brilliant 2008 release 'Syncopated City'. A little bit more upbeat than the previous album, keeping to the same high standards with outstanding vocals provided by the ever brilliant Esmeralda. Stand out tracks 'Meteorites' and 'Bells in my head' which are my pick of the bunch. However this album is good all the way through and fetches far out beyond the original Drum @ Bass genre offering something that combines both past and current and sounds. Just buy and enjoy.

Yikes! is good, really good. Bloomin' marvelous even.

I think I might I always feel that London Elektricity hit a glorious, innovative and bizarrely under-appreciated high with Billion Dollar Gravy and Power Ballads, the live band, the manic 'Jungle Drummer' and Liane Carroll standing on the stage. Hitting a cross-genre and extreme artistic peak with the soaring 'Hanging Rock' from Power Ballads.

It's got the melancholy bug that is drifting around some electronic stuff over the last however many years (I'm thinking particularly of SBTRKT as I say this) but SBTRKT is soulful and Tony 'Guy on the cover with the trendy specs' Coleman has long been a proponent of 'fast soul music' (from at least Billion Dollar Gravy as this was when I first heard his stuff). So there's not necessarily anything wrong with melancholy in this context.

Where this album might trip up and have provoked the 3 star review someone else has given it is I think the track ordering. It starts off with the slightly melancholy 'Elektricity Will Keep Me Warm' featuring a continual old-skool loop (more on that later) it almost gives off the impression that this DnB pioneer's studio has gone back in time. Coupling that with one piano chord every two bars I'm suddenly transported back to the days of amateur bedroom producer wannabes (perhaps intentionally so). I'd say this is a risky track to start off a London Elektricity album with. I listened to it walking to work a few times and didn't get into it (much as I remember thinking with Syncopated City). It picks up with Meteorites, but then threatens to drop you again with the half-tempo of 'Had a Little Fight'.

It was listening to it on my stereo at home (I know, I'm so out-of-date right?) that it all made sense.
