Album Review

Reviewed 2006-07-20 
Chill-out/Lounge/Trip-Hop. Canadian producers, songwriters, and brothers Francois and Dominic Paterson are Soma Sonic. This is an ultra-chic, clean Euro-sound, reminiscent of Hooverphonic, Lamb. Sweet sometimes eerie female vocals throughout, remind me of Beth Orton. One of the most electrifying, absolutely perfect albums I have listened to this year. The album is very long, so there are a few obvious fillers, but almost every track is beautiful and recommended.
Disc 1: (1) Downtempo. Female spoken vocals and a melodic tune. Lovely but predictable.
(2) Moody with dreamy female vocals.
**(3) A swinging, slow bossa beat. Vocals more prominent. James Bond-esque.
(4) Instrumental. Slow.
**(5) Sweet loungey-house, think St. Germain.
**(6) Mysterious. Chill-house.
**(7) Breathy, downtempo.
(8) Faster spy music, with horns.
**(9) French vocals, dreamy, beautiful.
(10) Carnival music, instrumental. Skippable.
(11) Downtempo ballad.
Disc 2: **(1) Original mix of Disc 1, (6). Space sound fx. Lovely, trip-hoppy.
(2) Very chill dub.
(3) French vocals, sad, lots of strings.
***(4) Faster, xylophone?, kinda funky.
(5) Jazzy, horns, fast rhythm.
(6) Remix of Disc 1, (3).
(7) Instrumental.
**(8) Slow trip-hop, childish voice.
(9) Totally dub. Instrumental.
(10) Slightly pointless instrumental sounds at best like a movie soundtrack.
(11) Housed up version of disc 1, (11) though the original is better.
