CD Reviews

The engine is turning, but the vehicle isn't going anywhere
Daniel Wolkenfeld | Chicago | 12/31/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I'm a very big fan of Peace Orchestra and the K&D sessions. But this album was a big letdown. I didn't like the way he repeated the same vocal samples -- OK in some situations but these were not wise selections because they leave you hanging, wondering what the rest of the conversation was about. I found this to be very irritating the first time I listened to the album on earphones. Another thing I was disappointed with was the lack of instrumental or vocal performances. There was no musicianship in this album, only background beats, chord structure, and decorative samples. The entire album was pure backup with no starring performance."
This album initiated my love for downtempo

"It's true that this album doesn't rely on the samples of lyrics that many current downtempo artists utilize, but you won't miss it. They create wonderful rich musical spaces without a lot of lyrics. In much the same way the Propellerheads were masters of creating big-beat frenetic anthems keying on their masterful use of drums and bass lines, Tosca is able to drive their version of downtempo tracks without overly relying on too much "background" noise. Just listen to the first track and you will get a feel for the album. I personally find this to be one of my secret treasures that I recommend again and again to people who enjoy artists like Thievery Corporation and Zero 7... and they almost always love it as well."
... appropriately named...

""opera"... this cd has the same fascination with me as actual opera singing: my attention is held jus long enough to decide that what i'm lissenin to is good, but at that point i feel the need to move onto somethin else... this got some serious stereo time for about three days and that was that (about 3 and a half stars actually)... the 'suzuki' disc is far more enjoyable than this one, but if you have a quality multi-disc cd changer then you can probably find some room in it for this once you set it for 'random play'..."
