Although Bombay Dub Orchestra's eponymous debut album is a fantastic downtempo listening experience, it didn't always deliver on it's promise/premise of a fusion of orchestral music, Indian music and dub. Tracks veered one way or the other, with only a light sprinkling of dub. On 'Tales From the Grand Bazaar' the three elements of the band's music are far more successfully integrated, with the dub element taking a far more central role. While the band's debut suggested influences (well, at least to me) of acts such as Enigma and William Orbit, 'TFTGB' is far more reminiscent of Massive Attack, whilst also retaining it's own unique individuality due to the addition of the orchestra (I haven't heard '3 Cities' so I can't say how the band's music might have evolved between that album and this one). 'TFTGB' is the perfect album to wind down to at the end of the day. At times, the music is incredibly moving, particularly on the tracks 'A Time of Beauty' and 'Air Like Velvet'.

'Tales From The Grand Bazaar' is an album I'd definitely recommend to fans of downtempo music.

Romantic, beautiful, on the cloud between middle east & India, time consuming in gentle happiness. Just awesome!
