Faithless Perfects With Reverence
on November 1, 2000
In the traditional realm of dance vs. trance techno, Faithless has managed quite successfully to incorporate both genres into their styles, mixing it into a wonderful album that is glorious from beginning to finish. The first song, Reverence, is a great opener, with Maxi Jazz coming immediately upon the scene with his awesome and infamous raps, and the momentum continues until the end of the album. I became familiar with Faithless through their next album, Sunday 8PM, so the transition from that album to this one was substantial, yet both albums are of superb quality and succeed in refining the beautiful and powerful style of Faithless. Actually, in some ways I like Reverence somewhat better than Sunday 8PM, because of my background preference of dance, instead of trance. There is plenty of trance in Reverence, but it works itself well to build and not become tiring. I would definately recommend this album to everyone who appreciates musical talent in this sort of eurotechno/rap genre. Some highlights are: Reverence, Insomnia, Dirty Old Man, Don't Leave, and Salva Mea, but all of the songs are great. Buy this album!
