Customer Review

on 13 July 2004
There is no doubt that Will Holland, aka Quantic, is an extremely creative and talented individual. Already having two albums under his Quantic moniker, as well as one album with The Quantic Soul Orchestra and one album with The Limb Twins (i.e. Will Holland and Russel Porter), his third solo album sees Quantic collaborating with names like the funk-soul vocalist Spanky Wilson, ragga-inspired vocalist Sonny Kaplins, French MC Trinidad and Tru Thought's soulful Alice Russell (soon to release her first solo album). What is quite remarkable is that Quantic plays most instruments, including guitar, bass, tenor saxophone etc.
Mishaps Happening is musically diverse, yet the funk element is manifest throughout the album. Alice Rusell provides lead vocals for the excellent "Sound of everything" and the ethereal "So long" and also performs vocals for the title track "Mishaps Happening" and the superbly arranged "Prelude to happening". French hiphop is being offered in "En focus", which fits nicely in the album. "Angels and Albatrosses" is a very interesting downtempo track with - somewhat - oriental orchestrations. My favourite track has to be "Don't joke with a hungry man". Fantastic basslines, incredible chorus and the voice of Spanky Wilson is plain funky! In a similar vibe is "When you're through" again featuring Spanky Wilson. The rest of the tracks I haven't mentioned (4 in total), in my opinion lack imagination although they adequately fill the album, hence the 4 stars!
