5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent... May 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Wow...this album is exceptional...
The production values are very high, all the tracks sound like they were recorded in the time ahead of us. Rather, it's incredible. This is another must-have for fans of (very) sophisticated trip-hop and intensely futuristic music.
My Favorite Tracks Are; Inhaler, 2 Wicky, Revolver, Someone, Innervoice.
I like the way these guys end their songs, every song has a really unusual but yet excellent ending.
I'm glad I bought this CD, it really made my week more interesting with having some cool music to chill-out with...for a change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh It's Green March 27 2004
By A Customer

It was green, the trees. I was driving down the road and I knew it was. Hooverphonic is phonically hooverondulous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't have the whole history, but... March 24 2004
By john b
Format:Audio CD
I don't have all the personal history of this band, and with all the many interests I have in music, I don't have time to really delve into it. If Hooverphonic switched singers I wouldn't know it.
I can tell you what I do know, which is this: I have this album, Blue Wonder and The Magnificant...and by far this is the best of the three. BWPM has one of the male band members sing on some of the tracks, which splits the album ala Waldeck and simply detracts from what you want to listen to Hooverphonic for in the first place (which is airy, sweeping soundscapes that take you on an inner trip). TMT is a little underdeveloped and sounds almost poppish.
But this album nails it, hands down. The whole thing, from the very first track to the last soaring chorus is perfect trip-hop/electronica listening. It is hard to find new stuff to listen to in this vein of music, being as there are few (if any) venues to be able to listen to new stuff(for those of us on a budget) but this one belongs up there with the best (Estheros 'breath from another', PH's 'Dummy', Morcheeba's 'Big Calm') of the genre. The only other compliment that I can think to give to this album is this: there is no song worth skipping on this cd. You will want to hear it from one end to the other without touching the player once.
If you love new music, you owe it to yourself to check this one out.

4.0 out of 5 stars The only one worth buying Feb. 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
Sadly, Hooverphonic is one of those bands that makes a terrific first album and then, well, goes all Pop on us. Perhaps it was the switching of female vocalists. Anyway, "Sound Spectacular" contains that trip-hop classic "2Wicky". The rest of the CD I would characterize as "aggressive down-tempo" rather than trip-hop. There is some great swirling momentum on "Inhaler", "Wardrope" and "Revolver". They try to get cute with some sound effects, but otherwise a great album.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS NOT PORTISHEAD!!! Dec 3 2003
By D. Lee
Format:Audio CD
People are quick to compare singers/musicians to other more well-knowns in the business for some reason, then turn around and bash them for it as if they had a personal vendetta out for them. It really ticks me off because it doesn't allow music lovers like me to listen with discernment and an open-mind. Instead, I prejudge. Luckily, I'm not so weak-minded as to listen to the criticisms of others and allow myself to be the judge. Well, for all the folks who compare(d) Hooverphonic to Portishead, this group DOES NOT sound anything like them! In fact, after picking up the incredible "A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular" seven years later after its release, I found the sound to be just as fresh and contemporary in 2003. I absolutely loathe "dated" sounding music...it shows that the artist is just making music that appeals to "the now", and not for generations to come. Hooverphonic--along with folks like DJ Shadow, Boards of Canada, Amon Tobin, Prince and yes, Portishead, have all done masterful jobs of making music that will sound good even 20 years from now--they're called classics! Something Hooverphnic has created with "A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular!"
