4.0 out of 5 stars Sensuality April 23, 2007
Format:Audio CD
It must be overwhelming for an artist like Cornelius to make a mega-masterpiece like "Point," and be expected to follow it up with something just as good, if not better.

And Cornelius manages to do pretty well with "Sensuous," his third full-length album, and his first in five long years. While it doesn't measure up to his last album, "Sensuous" does manage to be a charming, atmospheric little collection of quirky pop music.

It opens with the title track, an ambient little guitar melody that never goes anywhere much -- but it's redeemed by the staccato guitar and colourful sampling patchwork of "Fit Song." I suppose it's called that because Cornelius "fits" dozens of odd little sounds into the song, over the sputtery guitar and manic drums. It's wonderfully eccentric.

From there, Cornelius mingles electronic experimentation with sparkling sound effects and charming, almost childlike melodies. Hiccuping piano melodies and folky guitar, interrupted by digital blips and a CD spinning. Funky electronica that sparkles like a gem. Revving guitars that tumble into a heart-racing melody. Unstoppable "tick... tock" electropop. And a shimmering, soaring "Like A Rolling Stone," which sounds like wind chimes being diddled.

It takes a little while to listen to "Sensuous" objectively. The ghost of "Point" keeps looming over this album, and at first listen it's easy to think, "Oh, this isn't nearly as good as 'Point' was."

But as the album winds through soundscapes of the bizarre and beautiful, the real intent of "Sensuous" starts to come out. There are almost too many musical ideas crammed in here, with brief sparks of typical pop. Then Cornelius's offbeat jams move on and continue taking themselves apart.

Cornelius is BAD!!! This CD is so beautiful-- always inventive and sonically striking. You'll hear something new everytime you listen to it. A true pioneer-- dig this record.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good album... I was waiting for so much more December 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Fantasma... oh man, fantasma. The album was stolen from me twice, lost once, purchase 4 times. I loved that damn disk to death. Point was amazing. It was different, it was new, at was the perfect company to so many things. I saw Cornelius twice supporting Point, and the shows blew me away. I'd never seen such visually ambitious performances in venues of that size.

I have been waiting for his new album for years, and I was expecting a lot. What you get though seems more like an addendum to "Point". Too many of the tracks are better suited as 30 second transitions, rather than full fledged 3 or 4 minute songs. Repetition is heavy and originality is hard to find.

It's not a bad album. It's pleasant, and a good listen with headphones. A few of the tracks are great... but for the most part the album just ends up a little too pedestrian.

Cornelius' _Sensuous_ starts off with the title track, a simple guitar offset by its own reverberations until it finally decays. Read more

I'm a big Cornelius fan. His album Point is one of my all time top 10 cds. Sensuous is a good album too. Not quite at Point's level, but enjoyable all the same. Read more
