"I have a confession to make: I'm just not very fond of that category of electronica known as "Drum 'n' Bass." It just doesn't quite make me go HMMMM. If I WAS as fond of Drum 'n' Bass as many people apparently are, I probably would give this CD 5 stars. Be aware that this latest effort from Sun Electic is exactly as the previous reviewers say: It's jazzier, more percussion-driven. It's definitely edgier than their earlier CD "Present," a CD I DEARLY love. My first exposure to Sun Electric was on the MTV electronica video program "AMP," during which the track "Meccano" was augmented by some particularly trippy computer animation. I was immediately hooked. And when I purchased the Sun Electic CD "Present" from Amazon and gave it a listen, I knew it was money well-spent. A previous reviewer says "Via Nostra" is not as mellow as "Present," and I must agree. Not that there are some really interesting tracks here; I particularly enjoyed "Things You Like to Hear" and the playful "Sierra." I just would have preferred something a bit more relaxing. Maybe I'm just getting old."
