This review is from: Since I Left You (Audio CD)
Only once in a while does an album so magical and bewitching come to your attention. 'Since I Left You' is 18 tracks of pure brilliance. Moving from upbeat disco ('Radio') to psychadelic pop ('Since I Left You') to scratchadelic hip hop ('Frontier Psychatrist'). Utilising samples to their full potential, an album of this scale and enjoyment hasn't been seen since DJ Shadow's seminal album 'Endtroducing...'. Apparantly a concept album about travel, this album twists, turns and always keeps your attention fully locked to the stereo, without being the least bit self-indulgent or pretentious. 'Since I Left You' is an album to be enjoyed on the whole, as most of the tracks are mixed together, to bring back that old style prog rock-esque feel to the record, but without incorporating a sort of Yes-style theatrics. Standout tracks have to be the title track, 'Etoh', 'Close To You' and the brilliant 'Frontier Psychatrist'. If there is only one album you need to hear this year, this is definatley it. Quality!
