4.5 stars: Grows on you,
This review is from: The Cosmic Game (Audio CD)
Thievery Corporation's 2005 release, "Cosmic Game" is one of those albums you gotta play a few times to fully get into. The truth is the duo combine quite a few more elements in here than in previous productions. There's the Middle Eastern and Oriental feels blended in with the classic bossa-based and chillout Thievery element, along with a fair amount of Reggae-based beats. The final mix sounds like Deep Forest-meets-Faithless-meets-Groove Armada, in some way, if that description makes any sense to you.
It's one refreshing album that will make you feel happy. Some of the songs do convey a sense of interstellar trip, so I guess the name was pretty well chosen. By all means, give it a chance. It truly grows on you.
