After "Big Calm" and "Fragments of Freedom" - the band sort of lost their way.
Their singer left to pursue a solo career and recent records, "Charango" and "The Antidote", hardly troubled the charts. But they kept plugging away and are now they release their sixth studio album, boasting vocal collaborations from loads of people no one has ever heard.
Back in those heady 90s, when making electronic lounge music was considered a valuable addition to society, brothers Paul and Ross Godfrey hooked up with Skye Edwards to form Morcheeba.
Paul was a DJ, Ross was multi-instrumentalist and Skye did singing.
They were the epytome of contemporary alt.dance genres pioneering a song-based form of dance music that would soon become known as trip hop or chill-out that was notable for featuring the serene vocals of singer, Skye Edwards.
There were other collaborations, but Morcheeba was virtually synonymous with Skye
All was good for many sunny years, but then, in 2003, the brothers Godfrey decided their musical direction was no longer compatible with Skye's and she was asked to leave.
Since then, Morcheeba has dabbled with a number of singers, including former Noonday Underground but no one managed to front the group like Skye.
This time round, Morcheeba has gone for the scatter gun approach, asking Judie Tzuke, Thomas Dybdahl, Cool Calm Pete, and Manda from the band Nemesea to do some singing.
No big names or celebrity grandstanding here, No, the guests on Dive Deep - the likes of folksy English singer-songwriter Judie Tzuke, rapper Cool Calm Pete, and French singer, Manda - appear chosen less for who they are than what they can bring, sweet and soulful voices that supply an emotional backbone to the Godfrey's languid, slo-mo funk grooves.

I really like this album. It's a fresh new sound with the classic old Morcheeba vibe, at the same time. Hear a lot of complaints about Skye missing, but in all honesty, another album with Skye would have just sounded the same. This album has a nice mix of voices, so it never gets repetitive. I like it when bands dare to move to something a bit different, and Morcheeba has done it well and with class. Some good mellow tunes, a few toetappers and head nodders, and just that general overall good-feeling energy Morcheeba imparts. Nice work Morcheeba!!

HASH(0x9c4c33c0) out of 5 stars Morcheeba Dives Deep into the Big Calm April 21 2010
By The Guardian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
By critical consent "Dive Deep" is now regarded as Morcheeba's best runner-up album to "Big Calm" and DD runs that early classic very close as an all-time great play-it-over-and-over listening experience.

The title "Dive Deep" comes from the Godfrey brothers' concern about the progressive ecological degradation of the planet's marine environment, but in a fine twist is also a reference to the depths explored through the eclectic musical experimentation evident on the album.

The split with Skye left a hole in the band not satisfyingly filled by Daisy Martey but which, remarkably, is filled here with a rich diversity of different vocalists including some male voices (and one instrumental number). It all gels together beautifully and the vocal smorgasbord brings a variety which reveals Morcheeba at their quirky and innovative best. What stands out is the mature, exemplary songwriting.

The opener, "Enjoy the Ride" sung by Judy Tzuke, is a corker. Tzuke sounds, weirdly, almost indistinguishable from Skye bringing a similar melodious style to a great song you can listen to over and over. Tzuke also sings a second track, "Blue Chair", one of the album's highlights.

Norwegian singer/songwriter Thomas Dybdahl makes a major contribution to the album, contributing three tracks: "Riverbed", "Sleep on it Tonight" and the long soulful closer, "Washed Away" and his gravitas goes some way to defining the album's style. He's a fine choice, the perfect match for the talented Godfreys. A song in French, "Au Dela" sung by Manda Zamolo, works very well too and brings a taste of world-music exotica into the mix.

The main highlight however is track four, "Run Honey Run", an instant minor-key classic thanks to the unexpectedly beautiful, soulful vocal delivered by Bradley Burgess. It's almost worth buying the album just for this little gem.

Some music hits the scene with a sensational bang, but time erodes its impact and it skulks off into obscurity (anyone still listening to "Never Mind the Bollocks..."?). The reputation of other albums however gets stronger over time, attracts new audiences and goes from strength to strength. "Dive Deep" is in the second category. After almost two years it's become evident that "Dive Deep" has real depth and rewards repeated listening. Is this music-for-all-seasons destined perhaps for greatness? Time will tell.

Interestingly, the Morcheeba website is announcing their new album "Blood Like Lemonade" to be released June 2010 "featuring Skye". Blood, it seems, runs not just thicker than water but thicker than lemonade too.

HASH(0x9c4c38d0) out of 5 stars Not your father's Morcheeba Feb. 8 2010
By ClickmeClickme - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is some great music here. It is unlike any of their previous work and that certainly threw some people. However, I love most of this music. Really. Love. There are a few rap songs that didn't make it to the ipod, but the others are fantastic!

Instead of wanting more of the old Morcheeba, I want more of the new Morcheeba!

HASH(0x9c4c3948) out of 5 stars Finally. Aug. 27 2009
By A Music Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Who Can You Trust was an amazing album of vibe and depth. After that, we discovered on the following way too many albums that Skye's limited range wears thin and she has about 10 melodies to choose from and mix and match. Big Calm was the mainstream version of WCYT and I lost interest. BUT, by chance, this album dropped into my lap and it's everything Morcheeba could be with unlimited power and resources. For me, it's almost like a Massive Attack comeback album, after their wildly uneven 100th Window (who knew Sinead could sound that bad?). The variety of vocalists is one of this album's best aspects. Judie Tzuke's singing is a revelation. I immediately sourced some of her recent material and love it. I have no idea how Morcheeba survived after the non-vocal singer on Antidote. I'm thankful they did, woke up, and moved on.

HASH(0x9c4c3cd8) out of 5 stars Form your own opinion Jan. 4 2009
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Owning and loving both Who Can You Trust? and Big Calm and having listened to Charango I was turned off by the many negative reviews for this CD.

Finally biting the bullet and buying this after hearing Gained the World and Enjoy the Ride I was astonished. Are all the negative reviews put out by fair weather fans?

This CD is different, having no clear single flavor as the others have it is nonetheless an excellent addition to my collection and to all those who are turned away by negative reviews I recommend you try this CD if you are more then a passing fan. You wont be disappointed.

HASH(0x9c4c3d08) out of 5 stars Refreshing and beautiful Feb. 21 2008
By M. Kusar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It is fully understandable that purists will insist the album is lacking some sort of spirit as there is no continuity vocal-wise and the album therefore appears like a picture made of imperfectly matching puzzle pieces and while I can agree that every vocalist puts a bit of his own spirit to a song I cannot ignore the ever present platform that is Morcheeba, recognizable from miles away, despite the lack of their soft-breathy voiced singer, Skye Edwards.

Please, tell me 'Enjoy the ride', for instance, isn't a spectacular, catchy, well executed song, that 'Au Dela' doesn't touch you a little, or that you don't recognize it as belonging to Morcheeba, or that the vocal singing is any worse than that of Skye Edwards - in my opinion, it's just different, as is the whole album. Call it a scatter gun angle, despair, or the new approach, but regardless of what you call it, it works, and it sounds great. I fail to understand why one would lament having purchased this album, unless of course, you like to overanalyse, get technical, snobby and puristic in regard to Morcheeba not settling for one particular vocalist. The songs on this album are catchy, pretty typically Morcheeba, and the whole album is an unboring, pleasant journey with lots of sights to see. So what more can you want? Oh yes, the next one.
