This CD is a breath of Fresh air. Eastern influences mingle with Floydian passages and intricate vocal melodies. This CD has been labelled "World music" but there is some much more to it than that. It is a truly essential album which will be remembered more fondly in retrospect than it is at present. Check out 2080 on youtube for a good example of what to expect. HIGHLY recommended.

Spectacular, Every single song on this album is a masterpiece. It may take you time to get around how different this album is to most modern music but its that difference which makes this album so fresh and exiting. Best songs are Sunrise, 2080, Forgiveness and Red Cave but the others are also fascinating. Give it a chance and you might love it as much as i do. :D

Again I bought this on the back of seeing their performance on Jools Holland, now this is not normally what i would buy, tending to go for something heavier, but i found them interesting enough to buy the album and was not dissapointed.
For me there are similarities here to early Talking heads but not in a derogatory sence, as they seem to offer to my ears at least ,something fresh and vibrant rather than the stuff you hear churned out again and again on various so-called alternative radio stations these days.
It takes a few listens to get under your skin , but standouts for me are Sunrise, 2080, no need to worry and wintertime but overall a consistent and compelling album full of world music rythyms without sounding pompous or fake.

I first heard these guys on 'Late Night with Jools Holland'. And believe it or not I was about to change the channel, but these guys came on and I was jsut hooked. These guys are a total breath of fresh air, their lyrics and mindlowing riffs are amazing. Love the harmony's.
Buy this CD if your looking for something new!

First saw this band perform '2080' live on Jools Holland and they sounded mint. I've been waiting for something different and new for ages and this could be it, worth a listen
