As perfect a downtempo record as there is out there....seriously... that spaced out intro to Leggy and the depth defying chill of Subtle Body and it all glides along together insomemutantjazzygroove....that won't stop...ever

This album was my introduction to the Fila Brazillia sound. What an intro! After nearly 20 years I still listen to this album every few months. It is a stone cold classic of down-tempo electronica, and to my ears is timeless. I feel this is the pinnacle of Fila Brazillia's output with nary a wrong foot placed from the start to finish. Essential!

Stunning record. Bears comparison with the roughly contemporaneous classic 'Smokers delight' by Nightmares on Wax. This jazzy, soulful downtempo (call it Trip Hop if you must) is a real gem. I fell FilaB lost their way later on but this is an essential release. Easily loved

<I>Mess</I>, the second album from the Fila Brazillia boys, has all the properties that you would expect (and hope for!). “A Zed and Two L’s” is a bass-laden jam that switches tempo towards the end, but is complemented throughout by African chanting. “At Home in Space” glides by on a flute, moving through various stages. That is exactly what’s so great about Fila Brazillia -- instead of endless noodling, their tracks have an actual shape and move according. Sure, they indulge themselves occasionally, but, for the most part, they’re tight. “Slacker” goes back into house mode, while “Extract of Pineal Gland” has jazzed-up piano chords all throughout. “Subtle Body” closes the album on a simple and beatless note. Outstanding.

Between track 5 & 6 is a breakdown, over which is a long Bill Hicks skit. "If you're in advertising...kill yourself. No seriously!" . For more of the same, track down his Arizona Bay album.

p.s. Fila Brazilia are the unsung heroes of trip hop, and long may they continue to produce amazing albums!
