Similar to but better (more polished, though some might call it "overproduced") than Who Can You Trust? and Big Calm. If I had to describe the sound of the majority of songs on Charango, I'd call it "smooth and creamy" to the ears with that ubiquitous hip-hop beat done to death by other performers but smoothed and mellowed by Morcheeba.
The "Women Lose Weight" song is, for me, not offensive (hello, parody, people: let's try to recognize humor -- and I say that being a fat chick myself). Actually, story-wise, it's kind of humorous -- in a very black way, of course. I just don't really like rap unless it's in the style of "Bug Powder Dust" by Bomb The Bass/Justin Warfield.
So if I were ripping the songs to MP3, I'd leave off Women Lose Weight. But everything else I'd rip to MP3 -- even Sao Paulo, a mix of dreamy samba and their usual chilled trip-hop. Especially Slow Down, Aqualung, What Do New York Couples Fight About, Way Beyond, Public Displays of Affection. They're on my MP3 player already, and I made a copy to play on my car CD player... etc. I especially look forward to cruising around in the summer with the windows open, playing Charango. That's how this album makes you feel.

...I bought the new Morcheeba, my THIRD Morcheeba purchase. Lucky me -- I got the 2-CD set (which has a 2nd CD, all instrumentals of the 1st CD). (I skipped Fragments of Freedom because of the reviews from lovers of the first two Morcheeba CDs). I've loved Morcheeba since I bought Who Can You Trust? when it first came out. And I can definitively say -- Charango is Morcheeba in [top] form on [most] of the tracks, although a couple tracks go over as filler. But that's saying a lot for Morcheeba, in a day and age when most CDs have the reverse ratio -- a couple good songs, and all the [rest] filler.
The best songs on Charango -- "Slow Down" - "Aqualung" - "What Do New York Couples Fight About" - "Public Displays Of Affection" have The Signature Morcheeba Sound -- these ALL have that trip-dub, minor-key sound first introduced with "Trigger Hippie" and "Tape Loop" (from Who Can You Trust?).
"Sao Paulo" practically makes you feel the sultry Brazilan heat yet has the trippy undertow you know, expect and love. "Way Beyond" is sung/played in major key, and a light-hearted vein -- and the change from a minor to a major key makes it all the more devastatingly satirical. If I didn't know they were British, I'd think Morcheeba was describing the typical American urban yuppie-(...)-metrosexuals one can find in big-city singles bars/clubs, who drive SUVs they can't afford, and, in general, spend money they don't have on stuff they don't need to impress people they don't like.
I could live without "Women Lose Weight" but that's mainly because I don't like rap at all, unless it's very old (Grandmaster Flash) or Missy Elliot.
Since I got the first Morcheeba CD "Who Can You Trust?

My coworker loves to slap this disc on from time to time and I have to say - it makes me want to jump out a window. What is it with this band? Every 'melody' is cloying and sing-songy, really irritating stuff. Complete pap. I'm a musician, I understand MELODY, complex melody, song structure, etc - i think this band smokes too much mary j to get down to serious songwriting. Same verse-chorus-verse garbage, silly lyrics, brainless chorus. Aaarrrrrgh! Please stop making records!

On Morcheeba's fourth album, Charango, the much-heralded English trip hop trio return to their classic form of seductive downtempo grooves. Their previous cd, Fragments of Freedom, with it's 70's pastiche was a failure when compared to their stunning predecessors Who Can You Trust? and Big Calm. Charango, henceforth, is a welcome return to form but this time with a bit of a Brazilian twist. Morcheeba brings the 60's Tropicalia movement to trip hop and bring along guest artists as diverse as Pace Won, Kurt Wagner (of Lambchop), and Slick Rick for the carnivale. You can almost feel the ocean breeze on the lilting "Sao Paulo" as Skye Edwards' silky vocals wrap around lyrics like: You told me we'd go to Rio / And you said it so charismatically, the saxophone solo kicks in later and we're reminded of the sultriness and sex appeal of the Brazilian shores, and the Brazilian women. The elegance and romance of Morcheeba's music shines through on every track, save for "Women Lose Weight" - a track that has gotten more press than it deserved for detailing a husband's murder of his wife who gained a considerable amount of weight after her marriage, and his affair and re-marriage to his younger cuter secretary ... sung by Slick Rick, who faced murder charges himself, ironically. Note that there are several versions of the album out there: the US version features an enhanced cd track, a limited edition version with a second disc of the album in instrumental forms (the one I have), a tour edition with a second disc of 6 live acoustic tracks, and a version without the enhanced cd and without the second cd.

I have always loved Morcheeba and the way they do that coffee house sound, but this one takes it up an inch more, its very calming and awesome I recomend this to you if you are having a bad day and listing to music will make it better, this is a cd to put in your collection....
