It is evident from Sunday 8PM that Faithless are an enormously talented band. Fusing trip-hop, house, hip-hop, trance, pop and world music, they create a truly innovative sound that sparkles out of the speakers in crystal. Rollo, a key member of the group, is Dido's older brother, and she herself features on two tracks, 'Postcards' and 'Hem of his Garment' the former of which's chorus is a very early version of her own song 'My Lover's Gone'.
Elsewhere we get instrumental chillout music ('The Garden'), straightahead clubbers' trance music ('God Is A DJ'), pop ('Hour of Need') and the dark, brooding, rap of standout 'Bring My Family Back' which is an amazing song with moving, painful lyrics, a dark beat and Maxi Jazz's chilling monologue rap with soulful backing vocals. This really is one of the greatest tracks of all time.
It is on the tracks where Maxi Jazz's raps take hold (like Bring My Family Back, and also the chilling closer 'Killer's Lullaby') that Faithless really shine, but they prove on Sunday 8PM that they can tackle a wide range of styles, fusing, inspiring and making great music for all moods.
