Wake up everybody... and buy this record
'Sleepwalking' is simply stunning, one of the best albums likely to be released all year. It contains a little bit of everything, and everything leaves you wanting more. If you want soul, sweetness, laid-back hip-hop or edgy exotic beats, then this record will contain something for you.
Rae & Christian have an excellent track record of getting the best out of their guest artists (even Texas sound ok in their debut album). In 'Sleepwalking', the Pharcyde are in 'rare form' - sounding as crisp and cool as they're ever likely to. Then, the two Womack tracks are extraordinary, with Rae & Christian allowing Womack's extraordinary voice to rasp its soul over some beautifully constructed backing music. Check out the choppy guitar on 'Get a Life'. Finally, I doubt whether anyone will have heard a sweeter, breathier song than 'Salvation', featuring Siron.
Rae & Christian are like Massive Attack, with all their edge and verve, but none of the dark paranoia. If I have a gripe, it would be that the instrumental tracks aren't all that interestin...They're not bad, but they don't mesh perfectly with the brillianceof the rest of the album. And it is a brilliant album.
Rae and Christian produce another gem!
Having stumbled across Mark Rae doing a dj set at a local club i immediately rushed out to buy Rae and Christians 'Northern Sulphuric Soul'.I loved its variety of downbeat hip hop and luscious vocals and have since bought all the other releases on the Grand Central label.Most are amazing(check out Aim,Tony D,and Central Heating to start),some are a little weaker(Only Child).Therefore I was so excited about this release and i have to be honest i have not been at all dissapointed.Although it does not reach the highs of there 5 star debut it is a more cohesive album and showcases the duos awesome production skills.As usual they have pulled in some great guests and have used them to great effect.Bobby Womack guests on the soulful 'get a life'and 'wake up everybody'and the pharcyde bring their unique rapping style to 'let it go'and 'it aint nothing like'.Other highlights include the instrumental 'ready to roll'and 'salvation'featuring Siron.If you like music of the downbeat variety this album is an absolute must and hopefully will turn more people on to the devestating Grand Central Label.
Ready to Roll!
This album is worth it for "Ready to Roll" itself! At first I was not too sure about this album, but the more you listen to it, the more you realise what a quality album it is. The music here ranges from some soul to Hip hop and Trip hop and features some momentous artists to boot! If you like this sort of stuff, check out Lemon Jelly & Kinobe.
