Far from Insomnia

"Faithless first came out in 1996 and released what was going to become a classic, "Insomnia" which is a very unique dance track. Faithless is not only about dance however, their music influents changes from song to song, so don't be surprised if you hear something completely diffrent then the the hit single "Insomnia" here. There are also a few diffrent singers on the album. Jamie Catto that is somehow the frontfigure on the outside, Dido with others.Faithless is Rollo and Sister Bliss, Maxi Jazz and Jamie Catto however, the first 2 started of as house producers and were behind some good songs in the early 90's, Faithless is far from a house band even if they are heavy infleunted by dance music."Insomnia" Is a very strange song, it starts with drums and a haunting melody typical for "house" music. Catto starts some slow philophical rapping about life, then after 2 minutes the "hook" arrives which is the "dance melody". "Salva Mea" is simular and one of the best songs on this album, watch out this is a long song aswell. it has some very good dance rthythm, however it's sang by a female aswell. The lead title "Reverence" reminds me abit of Arrested Development. Catto is rapping with some catchy backround beats. "Don't Leave" is sung by a man, with backround choirs. "Angeline" is simular to it, it also includes flutes that sound China influented. For those of you that liked Dido, yeah she appeared on "Flowerstand Man" a typical Dido song. I like "Drifting Away" alot it's slow almost ambient, and very beautiful dance song.For those of you that likes dance music and like artisticm albums that are diffrent from your average dance album, take a look at this almost flawless dance masterpiece. Faithless has it all. They later followed up with the great "Sunday 8pm" and "Outrospective" which i didn't like. This album "Reverence" is highly recommended, it suits amny diffrent kinds of music taste."
The best or second-best Faithless album...

"It is very difficult to top the white-hot, cumulative intensity of 2005's "No Roots" but for stand-alone tunes (which still have their own kind of unity...) "Reverence" is also outstanding. The remix disk "Irreverence" - which is included in some versions of this album - delivers consistently superb alternatve versions of these songs, notable even for a group that has one of the finest catalogues of remixes in Musicdom.

Don't debate: buy "Reverence" and "No Roots". You will be sickened to hear that this protean, unpredictable, unclassifiable artist/producer trio has announced "No Roots" to be their last album while ho-hum nonentity derivative acts roll on forever."

"I first came across Faithless in early 1997. I was drawn to the bass line of Insomnia. I was delighted to find a CD full of gems. Faithless dares not to be stuck in a single genre of music. The easily transition from a bluesy song like Don't Leave to a house driven song like Salve Mea and the trancy Drifting Away. Faithless has seperated themselves from most of their contemporaries because much of their music is more orchestra than single. Anyone who was caught up in the mid 90s trip hop, house revolution must add this to their collection. Faithless is one of the few artists in the last 10yrs along with Massive Attack who I find is always in or near my CD player."
