This addition to the Another Late Night series follows hot on the heels of Zero 7's popular 2001 debut, Simple Things, which fit in nicely with the current staying-in-is-the-new-going-out trend in dance music. What better way to reward fans of all things downtempo and chilled out than to lend their record boxes to one of the genre's most potent and respected series? As a look into the influences behind Simple Things, it's illuminating; every song sounds like it could have been playing on a corner jukebox while they were making the album. From the DJ Shadow-esque "Channel Suite 1" by the Cinematic Orchestra to the Stylistics' trippy nursery version of "People Make the World Go Round," this is music to simultaneously open your heart and nod your head to. --Ruby Tuesday

Next, alot are saying if you liked simple things, you wouldnt like this. I loved simple things and i love this. Im no hip hop fan but do have respect for it and wouldnt give it a bad score just because i dont like hip hop. The hip hop is also has a strong jazzy feel to it. its not like 50cent or snoop dogg or anything obnoxious like that. If you know one thing about Simple things its that the album is smooth. it flows and thats something that is fluid in zero 7. This album is no exception. Many people have grown more of a respect for hip hop due to this album. People should be more open to other forms of music because this is one beautifully mixed album and to tune it out just because theres hip hop? Thats just shutting yourself out from something really beautiful. Buy it, no matter what music you listen to, you should be able to respect this album.
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.
If like me you enjoy "Zero 7" and probably "AIR" or "Nortec Collective", then my advice is to steer clear from this compilation which gave me the impression to be put together by a drunken hip-hop/R&B DJ from Philly, while flipping through his CD collection in a moment of 70's nostalgia for his beloved band "The Stylistics"...I just wonder how could he have forgotten to include the O'Jays!

While the music in itself is fine, it is not what I was expecting. As has been suggested, fans of zero 7 should not blindly drop their hard-earned cash down for this one. Read morePublished on July 4 2004

I was compelled to leave a review after reading the reviews of those who felt duped. This CD does not require reading the fine print, it only requires a brain... and an ear. Read morePublished on Oct. 4 2003 by Wayne P. Weddington III
Yeah the Zero 7 track is a cover of the Jamaican Studio One artist Jonny Osbourne, "Truth and Rights". They have dubbed it out quite a bit. Read morePublished on Sept. 14 2003 by JD

Simple Things is on of the coolest albums to come out in a while and Zero 7 certainly take you on a wonderful ride. Another Late Night is a CD of a much different type and purpose. Read morePublished on July 11 2003
