Nightmares on Wax mingles chillout and funk in "Mind Elevation" the fourth official album by this one-man electronic band. As expected, it's blissed and tripped out, with plenty of inventive little flourishes to keep things interesting. The only problem is that it seems to be working too hard to please.

It opens with the terminally mellow "Mind's Eye," a smoothly sweet instrumental that might make you want to make daisy chains and smoke weed. Yep, it really is that chilled-out, even as chillout electronica goes. It's followed by a string of tripped-out, funk-edged songs, which are as sunny and meandering as a summer day.

Things take a sharp turn on "Date With Destiny," where the melody is reined into a more typical pop song, as Chyne B sings about how "time's on your side." She appears on a couple of other songs, the hip-hop "Environment" and the bassline-heavy "Know My Name." She sounds great in the first song, but after awhile her voice grows grating, and the "un-chill" music is alienating.

Fortunately, in the cuts between these songs, Nightmares on Wax (aka George Evelyn) sticks to what it does best: liquid, sunshiny electronic-funk. In these, Evelyn sounds right in his element, whether blending R&B beats with ambient sounds in "Humble," or the chillout techno of "Bleu My Mind." Basically, whenever the music and not the voice is the focus, things go well.

Nightmares on Wax first debuted as a duo, and then shrank to a one-man band, as it incorporated jazz, hip-hop and trip-hop into its sound. And "Mind Elevation" pretty much gives the people what they want and expect: Funky downtempo. This particular one goes a bit more on the side of funk and R&B, while still keeping a foot in the ethereal chillout.

The flaw of "Mind Elevation"?

I love Nightmares on Wax... always some amazing stuff. Only problem is this CD has some really good stuff and some OK stuff... the begining of the CD seems weak and too mellow... it's only until you get halfway through when tracks like 70's 80's get's things flowing. Worth a buy to have in your chill collection but don't expect 100% out of this album... suprising since their other albums are pretty much at 100%.

I am gonna be honest, I am a big fan of NoW and was very excited to hear that they were releasing a new cd. I was one of those people that buy the cd the first day. On the one hand I am leaning towards giving it all out praise, but on the other hand it seemed to me that the album lost momentum at some points. I especially did not enjoy the hit single "know my name." It is very unchilled and the female voice is just plain annoying -- probably the worst track on the cd. Other than that I am very pleased with the overall production quality of this cd. The bass is even more crisp than on Carboot Soul and the track selection is more varied (other than than "know my name," this is a good thing). This CD (and any NoW cd) is certainly better than any of those compilations that Ibiza and Ministry of Sound so dilligently put out every year.

I like NOW. The more I hear the more I like them. They have several variations of there songs I am learning but all are some good, down-tempo tunes I don't get tired of. One of my favorite artists that fall into that "contemplating music" category.

okay, so YES! the first single "KNOW MY NAME" is arguably the worst song on the album....but, reviewers come on, did you really give this album a chance at all? i can't get enough of this album and play it constantly. "DATE WITH DESTINY" may just be N.O.W.'s greatest song ever!!! everyone that pooped on this incredible talent and album with a lame review should go get their hearing and brains checked! listen to tracks like "SAY SAY" & "THINKING OF OMARA" these songs are nothing but brilliant and instant N.O.W. classics. who cares if every song isn't a diamond with a few priceless gems on each album!!!!!! take a couple more listens, if you are a REAL fan, and behold the incredible talent. finally, "DATE WITH DESTINY" gets my vote for best pop song of 2002, hands down. and don't forget to wear your GREEN SWEATERS when you listen to this band because it's good for you silly.

What a stunning disappointment Mind Elevation is as a follow-up to Nightmares On Wax's classic 1999 trip-hop masterpiece Carboot Soul. The tasteful, infectious, instrumental grooves of N.O.W.'s previous efforts are evident in smaller, weaker doses here. They have been largely replaced by vocal-heavy tracks which seem hopelessly misplaced. The tracks featuring the singing of Chyna B ("Date With Destiny", "Environment", and the single "Know My Name") are particularly cringe-inducing. These tracks in context with the rest of the album seem like a blatant attempt score a hit single and would not sound out of place on a Jennifer Lopez record. That's pretty lo. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
