The venerable Nightmares On Wax return with ''Thought So...,'' a sun-drenched collection of dub and heavy drums arriving just in time to wrap up summer madness. After paving the way for soul-minded beat-smiths like Madlib and Flying Lotus, this latest LP is another important step in an already iconic career. Buoyant and supremely catchy, ''Thought So...'' is another skillful combo of advanced production and vintage groove. In short, the record gives fans everything they have come to expect from Nightmares On Wax.

SO RELAXING!!! SMOKED, STILLS "NIGHTMARES ON WAX"
Rafael Cova | Caracas, Venezuela | 11/03/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Much has changed in chill-out since Evelyn dropped what's come to be considered his masterpiece, 1995's aptly titled Smoker's Delight, the genre expanding out into a catch-all term that encompasses everything from Balearic dance to sleepy folktronica. And Nightmares On Wax have changed too, although you're left with the feeling that Evelyn is exploring his own internal rhythm rather than marching to the beat of another's drum.
During his relocation from Leeds to his new home and studio in Ibiza, Nightmares On Wax leader/producer opted to travel in a convoy of camper-vans carrying his equipment, sound engineer, band and singers, the caravan making stops to take in the sights and evoke moods and landscapes through impromptu recordings. "Thought So" strips chill-out right down to the basics, a blissful, unhurried coast of clacking hip-hop breaks, sparse guitar and shimmering synthesizer grounded in Evelyn's main musical passions, vintage soul, jazz, and the late-night boom of the dub soundsystem. A handful of guest vocalists - Ricky Ranking, Chyna Brown and Ella May - add color, if not any real narrative. And while there is a distant echo of Nightmares On Wax's early bleep beginnings in Be There, you leave feeling that Evelyn is more than satisfied with his current pace of life: slow, steady, stoned. That popular acclaim will surely continue to elude Nightmares On Wax, then, but in a genre of cynical, blanded-out mood muzak, Thought So still feels like a treat, generously packed and tightly rolled, a treat for the discerning."
As good as the rest to me..

"I find N.O.W. records to always contain some stellar tracks and some I can't sit through. This is no different. The 3 tracks that lose me are
Be There, Hey Ego and Moretime. The rest is fantastic. Love the reggae!
I've got no trouble recommending this one."
