5.0 out of 5 stars 'Out of this world', 15 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Power Ballads (Audio CD)
When I heard this album for the first time, I was blown away. Funnily, when billion dollar gravy came out a couple of years back, i felt exactly the same way. This album though is a true masterpiece and leaves the previous album in the shadows.
It is so appropriate that the first track is titled 'out of this world', with such a live organic feel, which is where the london elektricity(LE) sound has been since Tony Coleman very bravely took LE live one fateful day at the Jazz cafe. I think musically, that has transformed LE into the finest live dance act I have ever heard.
The band oozes soul , jazz, creativity,and amazingly fresh vibes throughout the album. The sound is polished to perfection, and has been created with more live samples than any other successful drum and bass album. Even songwords are included in the album cover sleeve. Lianne Carol who has imprinted her beautiful voice on many of the tracks on the album was recently voted jazz singer of 2005 by the bbc.
It works on the dancefloor, it works in your house, it works in your car, what more could you ask for. Most of the tracks mix seemlessly with your regular dnb tracks.
Lets see, my favourite dnb non-vocal track on the album is probably 'hanging rock'it is mind blowing. My favourite vocal rollers are 'will to love' and 'Far from the shadows'they are some of the most soulful moments in dnb history. Although from a universal perspective, all the tracks on the album sound great.

By the far, the best drum and bass album every produced. The album will probably have massive appeal from non-drum and bass fan too. I had lost hope every imagining that anyone would ever make the first drum and bass album which had 'songs'in it. This one does. LE no doubt realised you need 'songs' if you going to tour as a live act.
Power Ballads is : 'A small step for a band, a massive step for british dance music'.
