This album will sneak up on you
on February 17, 2013
I bought this album after getting hooked on Chicane's amazing album "Behind the Sun". On my first listen through, I enjoyed it but preferred BtS. However, I accidentally skipped the last track, The Drive Home, when copying it to CD for my car (I don't leave originals in my car; it gets too hot in the summer at my latitude). Months later, I heard The Drive Home for the first time and was transfixed. If you've ever walked out of a club by the beach, meeting the bare beginnings of sunrise, hopped in your car and dropped the top or rolled down all the windows, and driven along the beach roads at a leisurely pace, just enjoying the salt air and the sounds of the world waking, then you'll appreciate the mastery of this final track on the album. You're there, seeing it, feeling it. If you've ever wondered what's so beautiful about downtempo or balearic trance, The Drive Home will be happy to show you, again and again.
You won't regret buying this album, and if you enjoy an easy to listen to electronica that pulses with energy but never explodes into dance music, then buying this will introduce you to one of your new favorite albums and artists.
