The Ground is an incredibly good album. It is the second release by the Tord Gustavsen Trio whom some may know as backing trio for Norwegian singer Silje Nergaard. On their own they explore Keith Jarrett territory. Their music is calm and lyrical and... See full review
posted a review of Richard Davis - Details. over 15 years ago
Richard Davis is the king of what I call adult oriented deep house. His first album Safety was filled with incredibly good tracks/songs and has to be regarded as a classic in this genre by now. So expectations for his follow up were high and Davis... See full review

What do you do if you have ten killer tracks in your repertoire with a combined duration of just above half an hour? Take five of them, add some mediocre stuff and release two albums.

Surprisingly this has not happened here. Producer Espen Horne... See full review

Just listened to that album again for the first time in about three years. It immediately got me again. A timeless masterpiece that deservedly entered several alltime-best-album-charts. The genre it defined (trip hop) is more or less dead by now, but... See full review

A stunning album. Very soulful dub-tracks with lovely female vocals, great songwriting and good production. What else do you want? Highly recommended.
posted a review of Hans Nieswandt - Lazer Muzik. over 16 years ago
Better than anything he released with Whirlpool Productions. No need anymore to ruin an album by being trashy and intellectual at the same time. On his own Hans Nieswandt has produced a very mature and entertaining House album with lots of good tracks.
posted a review of Various - Pop Ambient 2004. over 16 years ago
I know a few people who bought some of the Kompakt Pop Ambient releases (including me). All of them say that they are not really convinced by these CDs, rarely listen to them and only bought them because they are on Kompakt. So to me the Pop Ambient... See full review
posted a review of Faithless - No Roots. over 16 years ago
You may be a bit sceptical seeing a new Faithless album in 2004. Their trancy house sound seems to be outdated. Can this still be relevant?

Well, it immediately got me. With LSK Faithless have found a new vocalist (in addition to Maxi Jazz who is... See full review
posted a review of Deyampert - Shapes & Colors. over 16 years ago
The cover somehow led me to expect a reggae album. Well, it is not. Instead it is a relaxed, soulful and very song-oriented downtempo album. The Sweetest Delusion sounds like Sade, the rest of the tracks has a more individual style. Not much... See full review
posted a review of Pet Shop Boys - Alternative. over 16 years ago
This is a collection of Pet Shop Boys B-sides from 1985 to 1995 (originally intended to be called "Besides"). While some groups only use remixes or garbage on b-sides the Pet Shop Boys always had the claim to deliver tracks that are worth the money.... See full review

Kompakt celebrates its 100th release with this marvelous double CD packed with quality tracks. After lots of ambient stuff and a mediocre superpitcher album this is a very welcome return to form and easily the best Kompakt release for over a year.... See full review
posted a review of The Legendary Pink Dots - The Lovers. over 16 years ago
This album contains two of the best tracks the Legendary Pink Dots ever made. The piano-based ballad "The Lovers (Part One)" is very atmospheric and deeply moving. 15 years after its release it is an absolute classic that has not lost one bit of its... See full review

A groundbreaking album. Very experimental for the time of its release and way ahead of its time. This must be among the first electronic albums. Bowie and Brian Eno were experimenting with different ways of composing songs, miles away from... See full review
posted a review of Phoenix - United. over 17 years ago
This is an incredible album that's like a rollercoster ride through different styles. It opens with a heavy guitar riff like some hard rock pop. Then follow three of the best pop songs I know, in a row. I don't know any other album that can beat these... See full review

As successor to the successful Sushi 3003 Compilation this CD was released when the J-Pop hype basically was over. Sadly the quality of the tracks is very disappointing. This is especially true for the better known artists Pizzicato Five and Tow Tei... See full review

This is Dub Techno in pure Basic Channel style. Somehow you won't believe this was released in 2003 by a Spanish artist as it is so close to a sound created in Berlin years ago. Anyway, the sound has spread around the world since then and this is an... See full review
posted a review of John Acquaviva - From Saturday To Sunday Volume 2. over 17 years ago
The "Saturday"-CD is a rather uninspired and boring techno set. It starts quite promising with Der Dritte Raum but thean collapses and just sort of recovers with the last three tracks.
The "Sunday"-CD is clearly the better one. A nice house set with... See full review

Some critics were disappointed with this CD because Luomo has stepped towards pop territory. But you just have to adore the perfection of it. Good songs, good vocals, great beats and great sound. The mastering of Moritz von Oswald (!) gives this CD a... See full review

This is one of the rare albums that can convert people to "modern electronic music". I have played it to a friend of mine who till then had no distinctive interest in music (some R.E.M. some sondtracks) and got him really hooked up. Continued his... See full review
posted a review of Various - Whereishere. over 17 years ago
There is a wide variety of style on this CD. Most of the time it is Electropop with a nice retrotouch. The tracks by DJ Sid and Crowdpleaser are good examples. Sadly there are also two <i>bombs</i>. With its bad rap the Ianeq track reminds me of... See full review
