Listening to disk one of All Night Long I am inspired to write my first music review. OK, I'm biased - I'm a regular visitor to L&B!s stunningly good residency at The End (say hello when you go too) and I rate their own productions - so I was very keen to hear the pair's first mix album. It exceeded my expectations.
The 2nd CD is a superior mix of techy tunes, in their own style. As good as you'd expect, but for me the real treat is the first CD. Every one of this more diverse selection of tunes is brilliant and the mixing is flawless and understated, flowing from hard-edged tunes to cheerful tunes (but none to overstep the line arguably crossed by Love Story). As with their live sets the beat rolls on relentless, and the whole mix oozes funk.
If you appreciate any form of electronic music then Buy This Album, and join the campaign to add a 6th star to the rating.

The first CD on this mix is reminiscent of some of L&Bs epic sessions at The End, a great mix of hip-hop, house and tech-house.Unfortunetly the second CD fails to live up the standard set in the first and suffers from a severe lack of variety.Whilst i'll listen to the first CD again, the second one is destined for a life in the smartly designed packaging. Shame.

Having heard last year's NIghtworks, i was expecting from the duo to continue as it was: true electronica from downtempo to almost tech tunes. The first cd is like being there by accident (somebody else's cd???), has nothin to do with L&B, and is from R&B to cheesy house, without catching the listener's ear. All trax just flow in the background.
Now the second one, things r gettin better. From trak no 3 and then, L&B find their true inner self, and start from mid tempo tech trakks and they end to some almost dance trax, deep electronica sounds.
Its your call.

I got into Layo and Bushwacka! after being deeply impressed by the single Love Story. I now own all their albums, and this mix album is probably the best I've ever heard.
The first CD is by far the best, cruising between styles and genres effortlessly (hip-hop, acid jazz, techno, house, breakbeat) and makes you want to find out more about every artist on the CD. It's perfectly mixed and timed and is impressive in it's ability to take in so many disparate artists and meld them in a highly listenable way.
The second CD feels darker, and grabs your attention less, but the Bebel Gilberto, INXS and Sly and the Family Stone stand out particularly. Again the mixing is incredible, and it is able to sustain a mood and tone throughout.
This is a great mix album, if you're in doubt about the future of dance music this duo seem to have the formula nailed and it's well worth a listen.
