Customer Review

on 10 August 2010
Chicane's problem is a problem that occurs a lot in music... the first album offering is too good. FFTMC was a massive album, I think it is the only electronic album that I can listen to from start to finish paying attention to each track along the way, it's just brilliant. The 2nd BTS was great as well, the 3rd Easy to Assemble wasn't so hot and Somersault, I can only really remember the great track 'U R Always' and the fairly ok Stoned in love. It has just felt he got lost along the way, moving away from what made the first 2 albums so successful.

You can tell by the first track in Giants that it's more of the old sound chicane. The album is a little patchy. For me the highlights are:

Come back - It's uplifting and sounds quite fresh
What am I doing here pt1 - Nice vocals and tempo
So Far Out To Sea - if you took the vocals off (which I think don't really add that much to the track) this would be like a FFTMC or BTS bonus track
Where to do I start - this caught me off gaurd, the voice is very angelic and has a nice trancy feel
From Where I Stand - very solid and something that would fit in at a club well

the negative

Poppiholla (5am) - this is a good track, I kinda like it but feels so cheesy and it came out ages ago
Hiding All The Stars - bad, worst on the album, again too big a sample

Overall - Get it if you like chicanes old stuff or electronic in general. I personally think it has too many vocal tracks that are sometimes nice, can often be too cheesy and just unnecessary.

I would usually give an album like this 3 stars but he gets an extra for making an album more like what the fans wanted.
