Morcheeba ~ Who Can You Trust ?
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 --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.
Top Customer Reviews
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.

This is the kind of cd that musters up that same asthetic feeling you get when you look at a Monet for the first time. Read morePublished on April 20 2004 by from the beach
Believe or not I bought this CD for little less that 8 bucks.Those people probably have no clue how good this CD is. Morcheeba's first trippy sounds and new mixes sound perfect. Read morePublished on Jan. 24 2004
