Album Review

Can you package "cool"? You can if you're fucking Thievery Corporation! The duo has invented its own genre that is too hip to be lounge, too worldly to be electronic, and too seductive not to be played on repeat. The reigning kings of downtempo do their ESL label proud with their fourth full album -- a brilliant, understated life soundtrack.

Play all, especially: 2, 12, 5, 14, 16, 8

1. Flaming Lips cameo
**2. Upbeat dub, fabulous!
3. Steady, male vox
4. Mellow dragging beat
***5. Indian inspired, fem vox
6. Drugged reggae groove
7. Clinky, Spanish-themed
*8. Pretty Spanish hustle
9. Strong opening beat, male vox
10. Endearing/cheesy "spaceship" vox
11. Upbeat groove, 70s TV theme
**12. Brillian Indian wash/soundscape perfection
13. Smooth fem vox, pop structure
***14. SIC drums, ambient vocals
15. Simple, seductive horns & vox
**16. Title "A gentle dissolve" says it all. Lovely.
