Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Faithless return at their best and most adventurous with their 2004 album 'No Roots'. Production duties are supplied by Rollo and Sister Bliss with lyrical duties by the pioneering MC Maxi Jazz. Guest vocals come from LSK and Dido, which gives the album a classic masterpiece status. The lead track is the very socially aware track 'Mass Destruction' which clashes together powerful downbeat lyrics with a pulsing yet infectious beat. When combined by Maxi and Sister Bliss, the resulting track is a completely unique creation that stays with you long after the track has finished.

Amazon.com

After a decade as one of the world's most successful dance acts, Faithless's distinct sound has put them at risk of becoming dinosaurs. Thankfully No Roots doesn't rest on the laurels of former glory and delivers something quite special. Sister Bliss's shrill, semi-hard-house synth stabs are all but gone, replaced by less dated sounds and more thoughtful use of them. Tempos are lower and song structure plays a more valuable part, for No Roots is in fact only two gigantic, epic songs, with each track a progression on the previous one and clever segues leading into the next. The only song that doesn't fall into "Parts 1 & 2" is the lead single version of "Mass Destruction" tacked on the end; it's a funky, breaks-based tune with Maxi Jazz's trademark vocal (used sparingly throughout the album) over live bass and guitars.

Anyone who's seen Faithless live knows how they can jam around their back catalog, making medleys and breakdowns of epic proportions: No Roots is a studio realization of that. Highlighted by "I Want More," downbeat tunes build until their climax when an uptempo number will kick in. "Sweep" is simply a 909 drum and percussion loop with synth flourishes that drops into "Miss U Less, See U More," a classic house tune that closes part one of the album. Something other than a collection of hands-in-the-air floor-fillers and downbeat songs to chill out to, No Roots should be listened to in its entirety. It's a cohesive body of work that builds and dips in all the right places. --David Trueman
