Editorial Reviews

'Eclectica' shows the massive versatility of Zrich based producer, remixer and DJ Robert Jan Meyer aka Minus 8. 'Eclectica' draws a wider bow from Downbeat to Hip-Hop, to Disco, to Reggae and back with setting a high value on different vocals. HN. 2005.

I agree with another reviewer that with this album Minus 8 tries to venture too far out of what they are really good at. Other bands have done a good job fusing different genres. The problem with this album is that Minus 8 didn't seem to have a good idea to be eclectic. Some of the tracks venture to Jamaican/Reggae style with horrible result. Only a few tracks are well done with sublime style Minus 8 is good at. I really like other albums by Minus 8. This one is the worse. If i could sample the tracks, i wouldn't have bought it.

Minus 8 does have alot of other 5 star but this one was just straight blah at some points. Basically ALL the dub on here is bad; even Minus 8 can't make me like this horrible genre... I do admit everything else was pretty good though. I guess since I like rap, I was cool with the tracks he had on there. Again,I say that all the tracks are good EXCEPT those 4 dub tracks, which bring this album down 2 stars for me.

Minus 8's music has taken a turn: leaving behind his earlier drum 'n' bass work, he now trods the well-worn lounge-jazz downtempo path. In keeping with his new label, Stereo Deluxe, he dabbles in the 'internationalist' sound that, even now, is wearing increasingly thin. So it's too his credit that he can still craft interesting tracks for his 5th album, ECLECTICA. "Capriccio" takes a snippet from the Tschaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite and turns it into a funky vocal piece, while "Heaven Knows" goes for instrumental blissfulness. Both versions of "Soverto" have an easygoing tropical flavor, and the over-the-top spoken word disco of "Go:Disco" is actually entertaining. But much of the album sounds too familiar: "Acapulco 60" is very reminiscent of De-Phazz, and the dub-inflected tracks ("So Fine," "Brave & Bold") just aren't convincing. And the less said about the pseudo-hip-hop tracks, the better. So while this album is indeed eclectic, it's not particularly consistent.

"Soverato" is my favorite track from this album. I enjoy in magic sophisticated sound and voices. Nice! On that album missing more songs like that.
