Force people to buy this album - a hidden gem
on 6 June 2005
I bought this album because, unlike everyone else, i heard Instrumental on the internet first, I finally found out who created the classic, Rob Dougan, so on an impulse i bought the 2CD version about march 2004. The best thing ive done in my life (all 17 years of it). Since then i've always listened to it, nobody understood why i liked it so much, they thought it was bland, unusual. Until i virtually forced my friend to listen to it, now they love it. Ive even become good friends with my friends father because of me lending it to him!
this alum doesn't really have a genre, but i would say its more electronic/classical/dark(if its a genre). its so diverse theres bits of everything, this will appeal to everyone, maybe not the first time around, but after a week or so, you wouldnt know what to do without it.
Its all amazing, but Pause is something people would skip, as there is 33seconds of silence, and Prelude is at the end of numerous song on the instrumental disc.
best songs :- Furious Angels, I'm Not Driving Anymore, Clubbed to Death
the best song is Clubbed to Death II, although theres 1minuite of silence at the start, its a great chillout/classical track, the drums are a little heavy, but its still one of the best tracks ive heard in eons. If Rob was to release a track (he did release Clubbed to Death, but unfortunately only reached 11 in the UK charts over 5 years ago), Clubbed to Death II would be easily no.1 (how hard can it be, with a frog ringtone at the top?!)
Most of these tracks may seem familiar as they have been in so many movies, shows, adverts, you name it, he's probably made a backround track for it.
utter bliss. i did have something good to say, but there's no real words to describe the feelings you get from this ablum. the only way to know is to buy it and listen to it, preferably somewhere quiet( loud places will ruin the mood)
BUY IT, then force your friends to buy it!
a true hidden gem
