Product Description

Product Description

Faithless are actually a band of multiple faiths, both musical and spiritual, including Buddhism, hippy idealism and rave fanaticism. All these elements are sublimated into their dance sound, and after their mid-Nineties million-selling single "Insomnia", they were mistakenly dismissed as disposable Euro-house. The diversity of Sunday, 8pm gives the lie to this notion. It's galvanising dance music for sure, with big, overarching crowd-pleasing synth riffs courtesy of keyboardist Sister Bliss and non-performing Brian Wilson-style programmer Rollo. But then Boy George guests on "Why Go", a big ballad with a simple plea, while "Bring My Family Back" and "Take The Long Way Home" feature quietly intense, first-person raps reminiscent of Massive Attack, whose shadowy, ominous sense of melancholy is in evidence throughout the album. So when "God Is A DJ" breaks through the clouds and fills the dancefloor, it's more than just easy triumphalist hedonism; it is a blessed relief, a pleasure earned. --David Stubbs

Faithless second album "Sunday 8PM" is another great effort, it has a bit of everything. Trip Hop, World Music, Dance and Hip Hop. Just as their first album it's very diverse, but at the same time they stick with their dance influents on most tracks. The beautiful instrumental "The Garden" is am good kick off track to a great album, the title song "Sunday 8 PM" is simular to it. It continues with the dark, depressive trip hop song "Bring My Family Back" with Maxi Jazz. "Postcards" sound the same almost. "Hours of Need" is a great soulish song with background choirs and good hook. "Take the long way home" is a dance track, just like "Why Go" with Boy George. "God is a Dj" is defenitely the highlight of this album, it was a massive hit the same year and still works on the dancefloor. It reminds me a bit of "Insomnia" with Maxi Jazz lyrics and then the catchy dance sound hook. In the video he made "signs" when singing to send out his message to everyone. Dido also appaears on a few songs like "Hem of his garmant" but she's not in the spotlight on this album. "Sunday 8 PM" has alot of variation and it's a classic album from the great Faithless. Go and get it, if you haven't.

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.

Quite simply one of the most brilliant albums of recent years. The superb musicianship and crafting of beautiful melodies combined with breath taking production and mixing. The album gets better on every listening, as you delve deeper into it's enormity of abstract sounds and sweeping melodies. Crunching beats on songs such as 'Bring My Family Back' and 'Killer's Lullaby' complement the sorrowful but intelligent mournings and proverbs of Maxi Jazz. The album tells stories with it's music, and although listening to individual tracks is fine, lie down in a darkened room, with a pair of head phones listening to the devine grooves of Faithless is a pleasure that should be experienced by all.
Tracks:
1. The Garden - Beautiful instrumental track, one of the highlights of the album. Masterly crafted, there are so many layers of sound to listen. You may recognise the piano riff at the end from a Vodafone advertisment a couple of years back.
2. Bring My Family Back - Track starts with an interlude from Maxi Jazz linking it to the garden. "My world has become everything i've become, contained in the hum between voice and drum." speaks Maxi. The album contains many more little proverbs and quirks on life from the mind of Maxi. The track itself is a 'ballard' of sorts, Maxi speaking the woes of a man losing his family, and thus his life. Soulful backing singing covers the scathing beat, a song of woe and upset that sends a real shiver down your spine.
3. Postcards - A song about touring life. Contains a sample of the 3rd Gymnopedie by Eric Satie, that the songs works around. The beat becomes more and more heavy as the song builds and builds until the last chorus explodes into a firework of chords and singing. Dido provides the vocals - the song uses parts of 'My Lover's Gone'.

Reverence was a brilliant debut by the group Faithless. They mixed soul music, slow trip-hop raps, and house music in a way that no other electronic group had done. They continue this type of mix on Sunday 8PM. There is a feel to Faithless's albums that is very melancholy and depressing, yet at times uplifting.
Sunday 8PM continues this distinctive sound. Songs like Bring My Family Back and Postcards are very personal songs and are pretty sad. Other songs like God Is A DJ and Take The Long Way Home have become house music staples.
But one songs stands emotionally above all of the other songs. Killer's Lullaby is a very very emotional and hurtful song about a man's deranged thoughts after the loss of his girlfriend to another man. This song touches me so deeply that I can barely even listen to it any more. My lifestyle is very similar to Maxi Jazz's, being a pacifist and Buddhist. And a year ago I was having a VERY hard time getting over a girl. I tried to go on with my life and be happy, but I would have dreams that were hauntingly similar to the story being told in this song. The way Maxi Jazz describes watching his ex and her new boyfriend is very chilling and scary - yet very real to me. This song is an amazing piece of work and the CD is worth the price for this song alone.
The remix CD (Saturday 3AM) is pretty hit and miss. Some of the mixes are decent, but some of them give the songs a very cheesy house music feel to them. The Nightmares On Wax mix of Killer's Lullaby is good and bad. As a fan of N.O.W. I love the way they give the song their own feel. It has a very smooth and layed back feel to it, like all of N.O.W.'s other songs. But all of the emotion and pain in this song seem to have been lost in the shuffle.
