First the background: The Peace Corporation is Peter Kruder, who is one half of Kruder & Dorfmeister. And K&D are the defining act in style of music that is both overlooked and extremely hard to categorise. Its jazz, its trance, is wallpaper, its lounge music, its chill-out music. It is all of these and none of them. The best description I have seen so far is "Chill out music for the switched on". A few more artists in this genre: Thievery Corporation, Fila Brazilia, Daniel Ibbotson. Get surfing :o) So, onto this recording: I would try to avoid superlatives, but im afraid it is not possible. This CD is as good as it gets. More laid back than K&D, more trancey, more crisp. The tracks are varied and distinct, and hopelessly addictive. This CD is not a sound track for a dark french thriller, but it could be. It wont change your life either, but it DOES belong in your CD collection, along with...
Excellent Album. This is an intellegent piece of mastery and must be added to any self respecting individuals record collection. Superb basslines, funky vibes and interesting compositions make this a world beater. Id also recommend the remixed version of this album (Reset: Remixes), which is equally superb.
When I got this I just put it with the others in a pile as I had bought it on a vague recommendation, but I'm glad I got round to putting it on as I would have missed an absolute feast otherwise. Great cover too.
Like a perfect pussycat slinking round your ankles! Buy it - its just lovely. Play it when your freinds are round and if they don't already own it they will be demading to know what it is. Its the perfect soundscape for dinner, chilling or a rainy Sunday afternoon. I can't praise this CD highly enough.
If youre a dance fan and are used to your normal chilled out efforts from the usual list of DJ's doing the circuit to sell their albums, then think of this album in one of 2 ways. Want something different to the normal chilled out tunes, or stay with em. THIS IS a quality chilled out album, interesting, throughly worked out and has a tribal undertone which keeps it running throughtout. An excellent buy, in the similar vain to the Theivery Corporation. Well thought out jazzy chill out, buy it if youre open minded about your chilled tunes - Excellent
