Product Description


Morcheeba served as the template for subsequent "trip-hop" combos, with a line-up that consisted of brothers Ross and Paul Godfrey (both steeped in a musical heritage ranging from Hendrix to roots reggae, from which they cherry-picked at will) and female vocalist Skye Edwards, whose languid vocals melted into the brothers' melange of slide guitars, scratch DJing dub and tablas like cream into coffee. "Who Can You Trust" didn't immediately win over the dance crowd, moving as it did at Mississippi pace through a marijuana haze of sound. The album's standout tracks, however, including "Tape Loop" and "Trigger Hippie", an almost edible concoction of dark funky ingredients, ensured that it became a slow-burning and widely imitated landmark mid-1990s album. --David Stubbs

2.0 out of 5 stars Smooth, Hip, Calm and...Tedious Feb. 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
Morcheeba`s debut shows that the band is talented enough to deserve some recognition. Skye Edwards` voice is appealing and captivating, their meld of trip-hop and soul offers some pleasant moments and makes for an interesting, dark and gloomy mood.
However, as a full-lenght album, "Who Can You Trust?" is highly uneven and disappointing, since most of the songs sound almost the same and the record ends up being a bit flat and too slow. When it`s good, it`s really brilliant, like the subtle and atmospheric "Trigger Hippie" or the shadowy "Howling", but these moments are few and far between, as the majority of the tracks are indeed stylish and smooth but also boring and unengaging.
This album has its shining elements, though it should be more diverse and ecclectic, approaching a wider range of styles and perspectives (the band would do this in following records). As it is, this effort is still worth listening, even if it sounds too depressing and is far for being a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Can You Trust? Nov. 29 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I happened across this cd through one of my friends a few years ago. At first I took it as typical background music, but soon I was hooked. This album (as well as "Big Calm") is a perfect mix of unique electronics, a consistent beat, haunting lyrics and the even more haunting impact of Skye Edward's voice. I would recommend this album to anyone interested in the beautiful and mellow mixes that make up the background music of our lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars My fave big chillin' CD Nov. 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was given this CD by a friend and it has quickly become a favorite. The smooth beats and Skye Edwards' smoky vocals made for my intro to trip-hop gentle and enjoyable. "Trigger Hippie" is my standout favorite song, but this CD is super easy to listen to from beginning to end. I like to put this CD in, light some candles and just go away. I highly recommend it
