Dave Lee (AKA Joey Negro) has been at the forefront of UK House music since the early 90's, all of his output is high on quality and dance floor friendly. This fantastic album is a great attempt at a film score / chill out journey, borrowing heavily on the American Beauty soundtrack with some great collaborations along the way. I really enjoyed this attempt and have played out some of the segments either as a DJ tool or in full. The 12" album (which I have) is a great DJ friendly press as well.

''It will be'' is an almost direct copy of Cliff Martinez' La Cagaste from the Traffic score. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUz8lmLlLtg

Jakatta's VISIONS hits right in the heart of mainstream dance music culture, though its main theme, as heard in "American Dream (Intro)" does borrow heavily from the soundtrack to _American Beauty_. His chill out roots start showing in "It Will Be," but he picks things up as Seal takes on the vocals for "My Vision" (not too sure about the female spoke word in the background, though). The female Indian vocals on "So Lonely (Afterlife Remix)" return to downtempo, as does the harmonica on "Feelin' Blue." But "I Don't Know" takes a different tack, edging into easy listening hip-hop with Ty providing the vocals, while Beth Hirsch makes a very welcome reappearance on "One Fine Day" and "Home Away From You." But I much preferred "Ride This Storm" when Pepe Bradock made it as "Deep Burnt." "Strung Out" seems to compress the entire album into a 10 minute medley, before letting Seal once again take the lead for "My Vision (Summer In White Edit)." Overall, though, the album is all over the place and doesn't quite cohere. Maybe a stronger vision would have helped.

Not a bad CD for a chillout mood but i dont really understand the order of the songs.
Im not sure but to me it just seems kinda "messy".
You have for example one chillout track followed by house track then a chillout then a groove track.
The quality of the music is top notch though which is to be expected from these guys.
