Punchy - you want it

"I'll admit that the only Morcheeba CD I owned prior to picking up The Antidote was Charango. I've heard Morcheeba on several different radio stations, and after buying Charango, I was a bit put off off by the lack of consistent style. I heard a couple tracks from this disc and bought it pretty quick, knowing that the vocalist had changed. I liked Skye too, but I must say that Daisy does a darn good job here. I feel that this album is more of an 'album' than Charango was; it's got a consistent funky and classy style, the songs fit together well. It's worth buying.
My favorite tracks are for sure "The People Carrier" - with a good driving beat and a few slowed down choruses that are very jazzy-swing, and an amazing belting of lyrical magic by Daisy. Also "Ten Men" is sweet. It's got a bit of a Spanish backbone and has a very punchy epic sound.
If you really really liked Skye, and had absolutely no care for the musical members of the group in the past, don't bother, I guess. But if you like the sound Morcheeba as a band of musicians and you want something a bit different than they've put out before, this is a sound purchase.
Has its moments

"Morcheeba didn't just "lose Skye", as some think. The Godfrey Brothers asked Skye to leave because her style didn't fit with the new musical directions in which they wanted to go, e.g., this recording. Daisy Martey, the singer on this CD, was fired by the Godfrey Brothers and she responded by suing them for assault, defamation, harassment and breach of contract.
This recording marks a very different direction for Morcheeba. Though it pales in comparison with Who Can You Trust? and Big Calm, there are many fine moments, especially tracks 1,2 and 5.
