Customer Review

on 5 March 2006
with great anticipation I waited for this album to arrive. having collected a couple of freelands' albums in the past
( fabiclive and Now & Then), i was expecting breakbeat mania to ensue! it doesn't ... but what an amazing album!
what you do get is original, eerie, raw beat, and tear producing music from bands across several decades. ive found myself staring at the floor as i take in every note, nodding my head and tapping my foot slightly,thinking of times when ive been happy, times ive been angry or sad. Adam states in his cover notes that he compiled it by just going through albums that were in his system at home... if this is the case i want to be his best friend. If you have an open mind then i would recommend this album to anyone, and i have. everyone i know who has heard it , has connected with it.
'And you will know us by the trail of the dead' starts off proceedings with a scorcher that makes you feel 8ft tall. favourites include the haunting 'interpol' the subtley funky 'jape', an 'elliot smith' track that oozes emotion as well as 'funkadelic's Maggot Brain...that after hearing, a friend stated he would give anything to live in the 70's! 'M83's powerfull 'lower your eyelids to die with sun' would be a perfect end track for any movie or album of the same vein... although in this case freeleand still has time for 2 more tracks... and i don't begrudge him one bit.
even if your into house, indie or hip hop etc... but not bound by the genre, this emotional rollercoaster that really is the epitome of the 'Back to Mine' series, is certainly the one and only compilation album you should go for.
highly recommended!!
