Editorial Reviews

Review

The first half progresses seamlessly from streaking-comet effects and wordless chorales into hard, hissy beats backed by luxurious strings. The second disc starts sluggishly ... but slowly heats to a sensuous simmer. . . . When Goldie slips jungle beats into smooth-groove R&B ("Believe") and Latin-fusion instrumentals ("Dragonfly"), you finally forgive him for his own overambitiousness. . . . -- Entertainment Weekly

It came as a shock, only one person has reviewed this. What are the rest of the people doing? Maybe everybody is shocked by the length of his 'Mother'? Mmmm, attention span. Interesting! Talking about Goldie, he is an important figure in the music scene, he brought Drum and Bass music to mainstream, and together with Roni Size, they are the only 2 recognizable faces in the drum and bass world. Yeah, everybody might argue that they are not the best in terms of making drum and bass music. True, Amon Tobin and Photek have much fresher ideas than both Goldie and Roni Size. However, when this album came out, I realized the difference between Goldie and the rest of the Metalheadz. Yeah, I have to talk about 'Mother', an extremely long track, 60 minutes. Who is going to spend an hour to listen to a track that is full of ambient noise with little singing and drum 'n bass beats on it. The conventional music buyer will not even bother, neither will the drum 'n bass heads, there aren't much drum 'n bass here. So this track is bound to be accused of being pretentious and overly ambitious... It is a problem with attention span, who has the time and energy to consume such lengthy and hard-to-digest stuff in a time when everybody is busy making money? So without much digestion, the critics decided that this wasn't a great album because they were sure that this one would not sell as well as 'Timeless'. However, I have to say, after 2 year's repeated listening to this album, I realized why the track lasts 60 minutes, it is in fact totally essential. You may call it an amalgamate of ambient, classical, breatbeats, soundtrack music... if I categorize this track as soul, everybody is going to disagree.Read more ›

First: All the reviews below are accurate.
Yes, the ones that hate it, and the ones that like it
Basically Goldie's fortes are drum'n'bass, experimentalism, exploring long tracks and sentimentality. There are probably few people in the world who share all these interests. Consequently there is something everyone will hate on this album.
The upside is that it is 2 and a half hours long. so somewhere on this album, if any of the above appeal to you, you will probably find something to really like.
However as a consequence its almost worthless writing anything about it. I thought "Mother" was wonderful - the one track that combines all his strengths in an ambitious, though perhaps not completely succesful mix. It was worth doing, and it is worth listening to. It is the best 'serious' combination of 'rock' and orchestra i've ever heard
On the negative side "truth" is a waste of David Bowie, "Temper, Temper" is a failure as noise rock because it lacks drive, or dosn't go far enough, Rapper KRS-1 tells us how wonderful he is but he is no Eric B, "Believe" is unadulterated sentimentality and dosn't work for me, but it clearly does for others.
On the positive side apart from "Mother" my favourite track is probably "Demonz" - kinda a feral tubular bells (if anyone can remember that), "Chico, death of a rock star" and "Dragonfly" are good, if not spectacular - and make nice use of variation, tonality and length - well worth listening to.
Ok. I think anyone interested in ambitious music should listen to this, they probably won't like it all, but you have to admire someone who can do all of this, and I look forward to the next album.

This is an album which has everything - Mellow, floaty tunes, such as dragonfly/believe, aggressive up-tempo beats such as Temper Temper/Chico, and emotional, powerful pieces such as Mother/Letter of fate. Fans of any musical genre should find at least one track to suit them. Personnaly, I prefer this album than the hugely hiped 'Timeless', which is also an excellent album, but lacks some of the emense variety that 'Saturn' has to offer. The album may have floped in the sales charts, but I praise the day it became a part of my music collection! Goldie - you rule!!!!!

So it seems that everyone likes 'Timeless' better than this one, but I'm not sure why. I'm sure everyone will disagree with my review, but I don't really care. Goldie conquers new ground with this extremely brave release. 'Mother' is superb, although I must admit...I seldom find myself in the mood for a 60 minute track. However...I'm always in the mood for 'Chico', 'I'll be there..' and 'Demonz'. 'Timeless' was great when it was released, but it is already sounding a bit dated, and I find it a bit dull. My only complaint with this album is that the Grooverider remix of 'Temper' is a hell of a lot better, and so are the remixes of 'Digital'. Although that was probably intentional to sell the singles...regardless, this is dope.

I have followed Goldie for quite some time. Drangonfly and Mother MAKE this 2 disc set worth your while. It is the last of this particular phase of Goldie. More rythmically complex than his first one, Goldie put his heart into this. David Bowie lends his voice to Mother and Drangonfly is a trip hop wonder. Excellent spin!
