This disc is a monster, not in a tree shaking, rip roaring, beastly manner, but more in an elusive, ecocative, all over your head-space style. A kaleidoscope of urban beats, european lounge, and domestic, downtempo soul, all highlighted with french subtitles. The panoramic range of possibilities starts with opening cut "Sunray's" by Yesterday's New Quintet, then picks up speed. "Christina Bonilla" - Jay Zipper, "Ghost Ship in a Storm" - Jim O'Rourke, "93 Til Infinity" - Souls of Mischief, "Pra Manha" - Da Lata, "Happiness" - Shawn Lee, "Cool Out" - Leroy Huston, and finishing with the classic "People Make the World Go Around" - Stylistics. I suppose it gets better than this, but not this year - so far. Zero 7 venture far and wide to collect this material. Showing SIMPLE THINGS was no fluke, they recomfirm their knack for stringing together what sounds great - first bar to last note. This one will sand the rough edges, and have you believing "getting lucky is just around the corner". Subtle suprises rule. Kick in the intuition, let the instincts take over. The boss of the nova. Oh speeding comet lead the way.
