"I got this Album by coincidence, and i'm so happy about it. This is by far one of the best albums i've ever heard. It kind of elevates my mind, increases my consciousness. I love taking the time to listen to it as loud as possible to let the bass, the melodies, the female (godly) voice and the glorious rap (i'm not a rap fan, i dislike rap normally) flow into my ears. I really enjoy it. Does any Archive-Fan know their Homepage, or an Archive-devoted? Please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org). thanks, georg"

"Sorry but this review will be short. This album's cd or the minidisc copy I made of it, goes with me almost everywhere I go.
It lives up to to all the hype it gets. Beautiful female vocals ,smooth british rapping and perfectly produced beats. I couldn't ask for anything more in a record. Everyone who I have played this album for loves it (even my mother.) Yeah stop reading and Buy It Now!!! By the way It is extremely hard to find in record stores so once again Buy It Now!!!"
Like they say, it's amazing

"Archive's Londinium is a very urban record, capturing the atmosphere of London city life like never before. Sparse, beautiful, chilling, sorrowful, a wonderful vision of isolation in a modern world. Especially brought to life by those wonderful analogue synth sounds.Unforunately, the follow-up album "Take My Head" was vastly inferior, featuring only two good songs :("
Top of the Trip Hops

"Possibly one of the most underrated Trip Hop albums, coming out around the release of Sneeker Pimps and Morcheeba's debut albums this one was truly overlooked, combining aspects of both the fore mentioned albums(and then some), Londinium takes you through a soundscape exploration of a rather eclectic kind, theres quite a few well crafted instrumentals all reasonably chilled, but with more experimentalism than your average Trip Hop album,however the quality never suffers. Having both a female and a male singer sets them apart from the usual Trip Hop formula, the cool flowing raps add an extra dimension and edge to the whole ablum, an absolute must for Trip Hop and Electronia fans.Well above average."
