Synopsis

Amazon.com
Billy Bragg producer Grant Showbiz bids, on this second Moodswings disc, to become the '90s answer to Mike Batt--the Brit impresario (remember the Wombles?) who produced kitchen-sink instrumental exotica for the lumpen proletariat in the late '70s. That's Tanita Tikaram (we think) in "Together as One (Luminous)," but she brings little to an album that is essentially faux electronica/world beat for boutique browsers. --Jeff Bateman

CD Reviews

Perfect for ANY Mood!!

"I became familiar with Moodswings in 1994, with their debut - Moodfood (1992) - unfortunately, just missing the CD Single for Spiritual High.
I thought Moodfood was wonderful - and was blown away when I first heard Psychedelicatessen. I've listened to it at least a hundred times and have never grown bored of it!! It's a beautiful musical journey - from the beat-driven to the ethereal. It's been a soundtrack to a large portion of my life; it fits in about EVERY situation. It's inspired me in my Architecture studio, motivated and relaxed me at home; it's warmed me up to go out on party weekends and brought me back to earth afterwards. I have yet to find anyone who hasn't enjoyed it; friends who know request it often.
Do me a favor - once you've listened to it, write to Arista and ask them to bring Showbiz & Hood back together for another!!"
ABSOLUTE, UTTER, SHEER PERFECTION!

"The things that amazes me the most is the speed with which these people play their instruments and, still, maintain flawlessness! Moodswings is a mind-boggling group who is truly unique and will maintain that position for a long time! It just doesn't get any better than this bunch! Need to put some oomph into your life? Here it is!"
Memorable melodies delivered from steel drums to solo piano

"Once I heard the debut CD, "MoodFood", I had to get this one and it didn't disappoint. This album is what a 5 star rating should be. Every track delivers.The music is mainly instrumental ranging from driving rhythms (such as 'Dancing is Important) to ethereal musings (such as 'Together As One'). The opening symphonic overture is still my most favorite music (there is a tempo shift that defies explanation but I can listen to it all day)..."
