I guess a lot of people bought this for the Calibre Remix. I really like Calibre, but as the other review said: It's standard Calibre. Good, but not exceptional.
The other side is a whole other dimension!
Million Words is a sublime and excellent cover of Bob Dorough's "But for now".
"Sure I know you'd like to have me/Talk about my future/And a million words or so to fill you in about my past/Have I sisters or a brother/When's my birthday how's my mother/Well my dear in time I'll answer all those things you ask." I don't know it they used a acapella or used a female vocalist, as it doesn't sound anything like the original. (In terms of tempo, etc.)
The whole thing is so brilliant, i can't really describe it. The subtle bass and piano in combination with flute just make it feel so sad, but still hopeful! I listen to this whenever i feel a bit blue and need a few minutes for my own.

1959 takes the concept a bit further. A muffeld blusey piano along with some faded bearly recognizable vocals make this a "Drum and Blues" tune for me. Really! It sounds like a old RnB (with a stressing on Blues) tune from the 50's or 60's combined with the nervous and dark tension of Drum & Bass of the new millenium. A brilliant combination!

I can't believe there aren't more of these tunes, as i am really in love with these! I hope this tune inspires more people to go in this direction!

Silent Dust is one of hottest new discoveries in this age of drum & bass renaissance. You may know these guys as they were releasing music as Hobzee & Zyon Base. Many artists take their inspiration to create something new, and globally, this is a good thing, i have a feeling that the scene is re-discovering itself in a way. By adopting "less is more" attitude, these guys created subtle and elegant, easy flowing beats combined with soulful sexy vocals. Top stuff indeed. Also featured is excellent remix of 1959 by Calibre with his standard drum & bass approach. My favourite here is "A Million Words" - clicky rhythms, chilling bell sounds, great vocal and mesmerizing sound of flute really hit my sweet spot. And yeah, there is also a full length CD out there, and I'm totally gonna check it out.
