"XII" is exceptionally well done. But it can't stand up for it's own: no material from here can do it. This, "A Touch Of Cloth", is a whole suite so damn good that it must be one of Fila Brazillia's masterpieces. And they're were always good... but this, for it's new sound, it's better. Dig it!

As the first album for their own label, Tritone (which would later become Twentythree), <I>A Touch of Cloth</I> is classic Fila Brazillia: the first track, “The Bugs Will Bite,” goes all over the place, from funk to disco and back. “Airlock Holmes” and “Slow Light” return to mellow territory, while “Ridden Pony” has a subtle spy movie vibe to it before launching into a brass section. “Snakeskin Bib” goes for some light breaks; “XII” is a gentle guitar interlude; and “Spores” goes for sweet ambience. Although the album as a whole is uneven, an uneven album by Fila Brazillia still stands head-and-shoulders above its competitors.

I can repeat just the same. This album in my opinion is the best of all what FB have released. Very dense, very colourful, very beautiful. When I got this album, I couldn't listen to anything else but just this album for maybe three months. This is how good it is.

I love this CD. The best start if you are new w/ FB.
The album is played like a jam-session, with excellent textures. Highly recommeded!

This is my favorite album of Fila Brazilia,very eclectic,samples from Frank Zappa ,Weather Report,acoustic drums, brass, guitars, bass...a good combination,lots of colors (like his cover).
