btw. Those who want reviews for just the zero7 song truth & rights ; I would actually say the song takes away from the album itself. I like the song and i wouldnt take it out of the mix but... cant say its my favorite part of the album.
There's certainly something for everyone here (I'm on my third listening re-liking tracks I'd dismissed).
Zero 7 reach deep within and pull out a rainbow of different genres - trip-hop (eg. Souls of Mischief), jazz (eg. Leroy Hudson), Brazilian a la Gotan Project (eg. Da Lata) and tracks by Shawn Lee and Don Blackman that sound uncannily like Stevie Wonder. Zero 7 even cameo on their own collection with a standard fare instrumental sub-ambient cover of Johnny Osbourne's 'Truth and Rights'.
It's possible that this range of styles could intimidate hardcore fans of the first album. Personally, I embrace the 'Another Late Night' series and welcome broadening my own horizons - especially when Z7's taste is this good!
Now I also read some reviews by some closed minded individuals who like to peg all rap music as bad and hardcore. Au Contraire! Clearly very good underground vibes and meaningful rhymes have inspired Zero 7. Not hardcore by any stretch.
So, basically, if you get this album, your getting what you should expect to get. As title, descriptors, label, and tracklisting suggest... this is a mixed downbeat cd with records that inspired. Hip-hop refrences are obvious, so don't be suprised. Very light, and jazzy beats underlie the occasional mc. A bit too ecclectic in places, but all in all, a perfectly fine compilation.
