Karminsky Experience Inc. doesn't deliver the traditional sound of the monotonous downtempo on the market today. Instead on the awesome "Power of Suggestion", Producers Dingle and Munn venture into the realm of sophisticated kitch as heard on the opening "Departures" and the groovey "A Little Happening", and top-notch tantra-grooves as heard on the amazing "Assignment Istanbul", "Belly Disco", "Shall We Dance", "The Hip Shiek" and "The Wayward Camel." Karminsky Experience Inc. also delivers the ultra-lounge sound on tracks like "Introducing Louis Pachini", "The Power of Suggestion" and "Exploration". As always, the ESL record label brings us yet another amazing talent! This one comes Highly Recommended!

I first heard clips of this album on iTunes and was immediately taken by the band. The songs range from intense beats like "Exploration" to more mellow ones like "Wayward Camel". The Karminsky Experience has a lot of range musically and I can't imagine too many people not enjoying this album. This album has a middle-eastern flavor mixed with great rythm and direction. Highly recommended for those who are seeking something fresh musically.

I have to strenuously disagree with "a music fan." I've got nearly all the ESL releases, and when I heard that ESL was releasing this, I had several months to get excited at the prospect of hearing it. Happily, The Power of Suggestion has lived up to every one of my (high) expectations.

It's *chock-full* of grooves. It's true that Karminsky Experience leans in the kitchy direction (Hip Sheik) so the whole record is overall a bit more Ursula 1000 (or even Tipsy, minus the cartoon sound effects) than Thievery Corporation. But still, it's got the intense beats (Exploration is again a standout track here, as it has been since I first heard it on Thievery Corporation's contribution to the DJ Kicks series), creepy/interesting vox samples (The Power Of Suggestion), and central Asian funk grooves (Assignment Istanbul, Belly Disco). Seems like a lot of ground to cover, but Karminsky Experience gets you there in style.

So, these guys are complete pros, and fit in really well with the rest of the ESL catalogue. (Note that Shall We Dance is on the latest Thievery Corporation mix, The Outernational Sound.) I can't find anything wrong with this album except that it leaves me wishing for a reissue of earlier Karminisky Experience stuff.

Listening to the tracks while driving in my econo sized fuel-emission-friendly car...reminds me of all the nouveau car company adverts on the telly...
When I listen to The Power of Suggestion, I actually FEEL like I'm winding around corners and breaking at the lights...when perhaps it's reality and I AM the car advert...hopelessly, I feel that the Toyota Echo hasn't reached the Mitsubishi or Volks Wagon of new age advertsing.
All that bubbly girly jargon aside...I absolutely LOVE this album...addiction? YES...and I have had some friends in the passenger side admitting the SUGGESTION that the album would be fantastic for late night parties and dark metro-dripping clubs...
I may be fantastically new to Electronica...and maybe I'm still not sure of the genre or versatility of the music...but for a girl who's into Hello Kitty, polka dots in her bathroom, snow shoes and Ice Bugs...this cd ROCKS...in it's own transforming, transcending, transmitting way! I recommend you be patient and make it through all the tracks and enjoy with a glass of chardonnay!

ESL is rightly known for its outstanding downtempo output, and THE POWER OF SUGGESTION, a collection of singles put out by the mysterious Karminsky Experience Inc., is no different. "Departure" is a beautifully mellow piece with plenty of spunk and verve, possibly the best track on the album. "Assignment Istanbul" is all spy-movie moodiness, while "The Power of Suggestion" is a hypnotic seductress. "A Little Happening" is a short foray into a beat jazz cafe, while "The Wayward Camel" is an outstanding Arabic/electronic fusion. Some of the tracks are a bit lackluster, but it's not a major detraction from the album as a whole, especially when you have pumping tracks like "The Hip Sheik." Even the slower tracks like "Behind the Bamboo Curtain" have something to recommend them. My suggestion: definitely give this album a try.
