After a long hiatus after their second album, The Egg finally return with _Forwards_, and one might be forgiven if they think that this album follows their previous mellow acid-jazzy output closely. After all, the opening tracks, "Wall" and "Funky Dube" seem to stem from the oft-maligned trip-hop scene of that era. Indeed, the purposely blissful "Walk on the Snow" manages to be much more warm than icy, which contrasts to the dub-and-feedback funk of "Always There." And while the sampledelic "She’s Terrific" doesn’t hit any buttons for me, the digital rock of "Nothing" works much better. Indeed, there’s much more of a rock attitude on this album, a more aggressive stance towards the music. But there are plenty of mellow moments as well: "Venice Beach" is as summery as the name implies, and the closing track, "Lost at Sea" sets you adrift beautifully (it’s comes as no surprise that these to tracks originally appeared on the now-defunct Bar de Lune label). On the disc of remixes, _Sideways_, "Walking Away" gets transformed by David Guetta into the club-stomper, "Love Don’t Let Me Go." The track maintains its dancefloor friendliness through mixes by Dusty Kid and Tocadisco -- both keeping a 80s vibe. But when Mylo gets his hands on "Wall," he makes it bounce; Atomic Hooligan give a tough-breaks treatment of the same, while Oliver Koletzki opts for stripped-down techno. There’s a blast from the past too, as Statik Sound System shows up with their dubbed-out version of "Get Some Money Together" -- The Egg’s first hit. I look forward to hearing all the hits to come.
