Looking back on this album, Groove Armada had kind of an unlikely existence with bacnds like Moby and Crystal Method at their doorstep waiting to feed them ideas. But they strived and came up with their own unique, chill version of electronica at the time (which this album features a cheap hit, "I See You Baby"). One of the first techno releases that I got into that featured horns and down singers, this was a great way to wake up in a morning in the late-90's or so. If you like chill morning music, I'd pick this up.

<I>Vertigo</I> is the album that brought Groove Armada into the big time, with good reason too. While it keeps most of the soul and groove of <I>Northern Star</I>, it also boasts better production values and some club-ready hits, like “I See You Baby” and “If Everybody Looked the Same.” But it also has the gorgeous downtempo tracks “Dusk You & Me,” “Serve Chilled,” and “Inside My Mind (Blue Skies)” and the slow jam “Pre 63.” And, of course, “At the River” is so good that it had to make a repeat appearance here. There’s a romantic quality to the vocals of “Your Song,” which is put in counterpoint to the phat beats. You can hear their sound developing -- another strong entry in the Groove Armada legacy.
