I've always been a huge fan of Atjazz, so it's with a fan's view that I approach FULL CIRCLE with a little disappointment. The album starts off well enough, with the delicate horns and aching vocals of "One," and it soon becomes apparent that Atjazz is working much more with vocalists. Gone, as well, are most of the house rhythms in favor of a slower, soul-oriented feel. And none of this is bad, necessarily (the rap on "Underlined" is slightly more bearable than most), but the rich density of his earlier albums seem to disappear. This album still has plenty of personality, as demonstrated on the skewed rhythms and melodies of "Parallels." But tracks like ""Put It On," "Before," and "Fantasy" sound a little dull and -- dare I say? -- generic, despite the nice basslines. And that's the last thing I expect of Atjazz. "With You" works much better on the downtempo soul tip, especially with its harmonizing voices. "I Forgot You" and "Love Someone" get back to Iveson's deep house roots, but it's the final track, "Sense of Life" that shows what's missing elsewhere. It goes from dreamy to almost minimal, showing off Clara Hill's vocals with beats and bass, before slowly filling back up again. Though this album wasn't entirely successful, I'm eager to hear where Iveson circles around to next.
