This has to be one if my favourite downtempo releases! Normally I don't like when the music gets to much hip hop related, but with this record everything just feel right! The highlights are <I>Cold Water Music</I> (of course), <I>Downstate</I>, <I>Demonique</I> (This track has some great choral vocals and sampling!), <I>Journey To The End Of Night</I> and <I>From Here To Fame</I>. Thanks, Aim!

When I call an album a classic, I mean it -- and <i>Cold Water Music</i> is a <b>classic</b>. The beats are solid and funky and the samples fit so seamlessly with the song. "Demonique," for instance, takes vocal snippets from <i>Halloween</i> and makes the song truly creepy. Other tracks have a haunting beauty that's grounded by the beats: "Cold Water Music," "Downstate," and "A Tree, A Rock and a Cloud." And on "Sail," Kate Rogers' gorgeously melancholy vocals send chills down my spine.
