CD Reviews

5 billion stars
jazz freak | Yukon | 08/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Anyone who gives this less than 5 stars does not know what they are talking about. I've listened to this literally hundreds of times since 97. Most electronic music sounds pretty dated after a few years but this disc is just incredible; amazing tunes in just the right order, perfectly mixed. This disc proves that there is an art to the dj mix and only a few others can even come close to this."
Great Stuff Done Good

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Kruder and Dorfmeister, cool-class weavers of drum and bass and otherwise obscure fragments of funk, have knocked off another album of slick chill tunes cribbed from the likes of Herbaliser, Thievery Corporation, Beanfield, and Sapien. This effort is a bit more caffeinated than "Conversions," but it lacks the creative influx of "Sessions." The end product has a good set of legs but fails to use them to go anywhere unique.

The vibe is one strata of liquid lounge after another, and in most cases, the lack of their trademark inventiveness doesn't detract much from the beautifully placid aura the music evokes. "A Mother" and "Livin' Free" have clean, crystalline swells of sound that kick the album off to a good start. "Dadamnphreaknoizphunk" and "Keep On Believing" mix dark ambient soul with deep house intentions with great effect. However, the album lapses occasionally into realms that, while not bad, aren't especially interesting. "Give My Soul" becomes a bit too repetitive, "Radio Burning Chrome" has an electric jazz groove that, while fun, is ultimately out of place on this line up, and every once in a while (see "In Too Deep" and "High Noon") the record hits a level of velvet-lavender lounge that is almost -- if you can believe it -- too chill for the tone that's already been set.

I don't want to harp too much on the various setbacks. This is K&D we're talking about. Like pizza or sex, even when it's not that great, it's still way better than most. In spite of the few uneven snags, the overall product is above average in style, soothing and emotive, and well worth the purchase."
