CD Reviews

Fine Down-tempo Grooves
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The previous reviewer sums it up pretty well. This ranks with the best down-tempo, chill-out stuff out there, yet they don"t seem to be getting their due yet. This is an amalgamation of jazz & trip-hop, with a bit of a melancholy feel to some of the tracks, making it perfect music to unwind to. Someone who counts Thievery Corp., Tosca, or the After Hours compilations as favorites will want to check this out, as well as the newest Moodorama release, "Music For Collapsing People", which is also excellent. I have a lot of this type of music, but these two Moodorama discs are always in the CD player."
Quintessential Chill Out

"Not acid jazz. Not abstract. Not trip-hop. And yet, somehow Moodorama weaves all of these threads together into a remarkably solid album. Each track is its own vibe -- its own MOOD -- but, they've all got one thing in common: quality. I've listened to this album in all sorts of scenarios and, while the best may be late-night with your girlfriend, the CD's got plenty of energy to get your head nodding no matter what you're doing or what time of day you're doing it. One of the best down-tempo discs I've heard, comparable to (and/or better than) the likes of Massive Attack, Portishead, and the other female-vocalist-led groups."
The pick of the litter!

"This CD by Moodorama, quiet frankly, is not very adventourous. This does not mean its nto a good CD! This is a great CD! This cd starts with a completely unnecessary intro but then "Darkness" comes up and boom! The listner is transported into a land of beauty, endless inmgination and love! That is a track you can relax to, make love to and slow dance to. Moving further into the cd, we hit another note worthy track, "Dark Sun". This song reminds of "spin spin suga" (original album version) by the Sneaker Pimps, except, the sound on this tune is much more refind and easy on you ears. Also "Dark Sun" goes into this variation half way into the track where sampled "tabla" like rythems are added. That sounds great! The rest of the cd is done in pretty much generic down-tempo/ trip hop style (reminder: this does not mean this is a bad or a boring cd!) until we reach the very last track "Mindless Moments". Now this track , i have a problem catagorising it. It can best be described a cross between cheezy porn movi jazz and super high quality trip hop. Personally i think this is the best track on this cd though i have heard another version on the compilation "Plug In and Turn On #4" which i liked better. Over all this a fantastic cd and one of my personal favourits. I highly recomend this cd. This Cd has given me hours of listning pleasure. I love this CD and i feel Moodorama seem to be a very promising group and i heartly look forwars to their next release! As an end note i must say that the only reason i give this Cd 4 instead of 5 stars because about half way into the Cd i start to feel that all of it sounds the same but that does not bother me much."
