As a long term Calibre fan my review will seem biased; but an honest review these are Swerve placeholders, they from what I've heard were played to the mature crowds, that Swerve attracts. (If you've not been then do go, it is a group of music lovers not wild nutters with upper class pockets)
The music Calibre provides is soul music, not garish and impersonal slap-togethers, it's an album for adults overall, those who say typically dull dont know music, a lot of artists talk about their inspirations but the output is more or less lackluster but Calibre draws on the inspirations to a T even utilising his voice albeit not the best of singers, still more than I would do making music.
This is a classic and Im glad there are those of us who push for his music.

This is not a fantastic LP and certainly not Calibre's best, however there are some gems within that I'm glad got released finally. I don't think Calibre got it right when choosing the tracks to press up, Venus & Mars, Easy On My Mind and Peace Of Mind definitely stand out but I feel that tracks on the CD version such as 'Les Loss Ablos' and 'Untitled' really would've added more.

It's a solid lp and only seems lackluster for those who like their music impactful and garish. Calibre's music seeps into you and is very soulful. His production is tastefully and gracefully executed, and this album is a classy album of sexy deep rollers. Nothing stale about it: the album is called shelflife for a reason. A large portion of these tunes were written years ago yet stand up completely to the liquid funk/chill dnb output of today.

Typical Calibre output. Nothing really new or interesting really. Same sound you would expect from him. Album really great for the die hard Calibre fan who doesn't like their artists to change or grow. Nothing unexpected. Can get a bit boring after a while because of the lack of diverse sounds, but for people who like their artists to remain in a box its great. Artwork is not very appealing at all - poor graphics and colour.
