CD Reviews

Leila Shows her Talent Beyond Bjork's Band
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With this album Leila Arab, Bjork's right-hand-keyboard woman, wanted to show us that she is beyond being that. And certainly she has found it. An exquisite album that moves between pure techno, trip-hop and rhythm and blues. Leila not only has worked with Bjork. Plaid, one of the finest techno-duos around, has requested her to co-write the song "Getting" for their record "Not for Threes". But is finaly with "Like Weather" that she proves her talent as a very creative musician. She does not sing at all during the album. However, you can listen the intense voice of her sister Roya, a R&Besque voice that comes from Donna Paul, and a versatile voice of Lucca Santucci. All of them also collaborate in the experiments that Leila puts in this album. Far away for being a one-style record, "Like Weather" is as eclectic as Bjork first two records. It opens with the Tom Waits-esque "Something"; follows with themes that make us recall Aphex Twin("Underwaters (One for Keni)"; "Space, Love" and "Melodicore"), themes that seem to be deleted by the Spice Girls for being too inteligent for their shallow minds ("Feeling"; "Misunderstood"), and the rest are approximations of known avant-garde artists as Bjork and Tricky. However, all of these themes have Leila's mark. Enthusiastically recommended.PS: This review can also be seen in birdpages, in its next edition."
Leila should be massive
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, Leila should be massive, maybe even as massive as the jungle is. But as is the case with many brilliant performers, they are simply not dull enough to really sell alot of records and be top of the pops. This album is one of the most atmospheric, moody and beautiful I have heard in a while. Fantastic, lilting music and sounds underneath really rich, melodic vocals. Buy it, you will be risking nothing."
Rephlex baby!

"Another gift from the gods at rephlex. Richard is beyond fabulous, and his taste is proven impeccable, by releasing Like Weather. Like Weather is a brillianty unique and emotional record. LEILA's ability to mix original lyrics with electrifying noises is unbelieveable. This record surprises, inspires, and frightens. Like Weather is a refreshing change from popular electronic music. Fabulous stuff from LEILA. HOPING for much more to come."
