Loved Deep Forest I, and love this follow-up too...,
This review is from: Boheme (Audio CD)
If you're thinking of buying this piece of music, let me qualify my generous rating by stating that I have owned and enjoyed their first album for several years now. This second work of theirs has much of what made me a fan of their debut effort: great melodies, lush orchestrations via synthesizers, groovy rhythms, and really cool use of sampled vocals. While the first recording primarily used samples of jungle peoples' folk tunes and chants, Boheme gathers voices from a variety of places: Hungarian folk tunes, Totowa Indian songs, a choir from China, even a (gasp!) live Eastern European female vocalist. The result is richer than their first CD, with more variety in terms of tempo, timbre (i.e., the sonic choices), and mood.
