Customer Review

on 2 April 2002
What can I say!? This surely has to be some of the greatest chilled trance music that I have ever listened to! From start to finish this album oozes quality and finesse. There is a great mixture of sounds from downbeat, ambient numbers like Leaving Town and Sunstoke to hugely euphoric and fast-paced tunes such as Red Skies, Offshore '97 and Lost You Somewhere. This music is great to drive to, or just to listen to when unwinding as it is seroiusly uplifting and euphoric, as well as cool and relaxing.
I bought this album on the strength of Chicane's second major release 'Behind the Sun' which I got first. Having being really bowled over by the hit single 'Saltwater' and not knowing of any of Chicanes earlier work I purchased it out of hopeful curiosity. Having got it in July last year, 'Far from the Maddening Crowds' is still probably the most listened to of all my CDs and quite simply a masterpiece. The tunes grow on you to the extent that I enjoy listening to them more now than I did when I first bought it. An absolute must for all connoisseurs of good music!
