Album Review

Reviewed 2009-05-16 
Consistently decent electronic chillout beats with minimal vocals/samples.
"Cafe Del Mar," "Chillout," "Buddha Bar," "lounge" style. Claims Kruder & Dorfmeister lineage. Try 6 (Joe Si Ha).

#1 * 55BPM (estimated Beats Per Minute) Dreamy Chillout conga drums breathy/airy w/1 word vocal samples. Synthesizers, hi-hat, = an inquisitive feeling. Too repetitive even for electronic.
#2 * 60BPM spiritual themed spoken word. Jazzy snare. Breathy chords.
#3 * 62 BPM synth and guitar for chillout feel melodic
#4 * 55bpm more of the same. Synth chords and guitar/keyboard riffs.. A dissonant spiritual vocal at 1:28
#6 ** Enjoyable pulsating bass guitar and hi-hat remniscient of Pink Floyd "Animals." A bit of piano at end.
#7 * Pleasant major chords ending w/a sample of an Indian woman reporter
#8 * groovy bassline a la "Use Me Up." Breathy well produced w/vocal sample acoustic guitar and breathy chords. Repetitive and a touch sad.
#10 * clean hi-hat with annoying vocal early, boring repetitive bassline middle, and finishes with same annoying vocal sample
#11 Sustained chord in the background. Equally uneventful & unentertaining. The chick vocal says "gay", and has the sound of a slap and a whimper. Yeah!
#12 a little more going on here, but only worth playing in the background of a Nouveau Douche event over Rasberry Mojitos.
