Having re-released their other albums as digipaks, Thievery Corporation did so with their first album. This is technically a re-release of the 1999 re-release, with Transcendence, Scene at the Open Air Market, Encounter in Bahia, Assault on Babylon, and One. They have removed the track Manha (which doesn't appear on the original CD anyway), which is not a big loss, and adds two tracks: Sun, Moon and Stars (from the Incident at Gate 7 single), and The Sleeper Car (from the 38.45 single). Sun, Moon, and Stars is a very nice uptempo song with a reggae-style beat, and The Sleeper Car is a very laid-back relaxed song. This is a great purchase if you didn't have these songs. Now, if they would just get around to compiling all their other B-sides, we'd be in business.

This is a great CD, every track is different but good. I have all their other CDs and this one completes my collection. Most music in this genere fall into one of two catagories. The more pop-oriented bands like Morcheeba, Zero 7, Hooverphonic, etc. or the more unusual ones like Stereolab, Spicehouse, Portishead, etc. Theivery Corporation is somewhere in the middle. They have good songs put together in unique ways. Their music is always refreshing. My favorite songs on this CD are; The Oscillator, Sun, Moon, and Stars, Incident At Gate 7 and Transcendence. If you like Trip-Hop/Chill, you can't go wrong with any of their albums.

While Thievery Corporation's first full album is less sophisticated than their later outings its rawer, less "crafted" style means that its best tracks have a distinctly more exciting edge. "The Glass Bead Game", "So Vast is the Sky" and ".38.45" just jump out of the speakers with their highly infectious mix of electronica, hip-hop & dub while "Shaolin Satellite's" drivingly addictive beats and multi-layered swathes of organs & sitars put it up there with the very best of the whole electronica/dance scene. Others drift, often much too languidly, between genres giving a rambling and disjointed feel to the album as a whole but, if you're a fan of Thievery Corporation or of high quality downbeat "world" music then what's good on it is too good to miss.

The Washington, D.C. pair of Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, known as the Thievery Corporation, came onto the electronic music scene with the release of their first album, Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi. The duo attempted to bring various genres of music together into a broad-ranging electronic lounge experience. They succeeded completely with their first effort, and continued that success with their subsequent albums. Dub music, hip-hop beats, and trippy sequences combine with ambient textures and electronic tones smoothly to create an album that flows back and forth from great dance tunes to trippy ambient music. At times it may seem slightly disjointed, but the sheer variety of music experienced in one album easily makes up for this. If you are at all interested in hearing these different genres of music combined masterfully, you must listen to this album.
Thievery Corporation takes a wide array of traditional instruments, changes them in the studio, and then combines them with other electronic noises. This creates a sound that moves from being very electronic sounding to more natural sounding at times. You will hear piano, drums, and trumpet mixed in with occasional vocals and electronic tones created solely in a studio. Although Garza and Hilton draw from many instruments and genres, some stick out more in this album than others. The album is full of very strong beats, often reminiscent of various hip-hop bass lines. Thievery sometimes ventures even further into the realm of hip-hop, such as in the song "Shaolin Satellite," which features hip-hop inspired vocals that lend a dance side to the track. In addition to hip-hop, one of the most common features that pop up song after song on this album are dub and reggae sequences.

The most chill of the 6 CDs I have from TC. Not as brilliant overall as the others and with less vocals but still wonderful and deserving of 4.5 stars.

I had never heard of this group. Very interesting music, always engaging. I'm listening to it now, always a pleasure;chill jazz, not mainstream at all.
