Fantastic album. The Galliano crew and fellow Demus, before deciding on stablishing in the Two Banks Of Four moniker, released this album for the IG Culture label, when they began to appear in lots of albums of the genre. Demus takes the director seat here to make a bunch of songs that sounds a lot more like Afronaught/IG than their previous acid jazz works, with a bit of the craziest experimentation they have in their most inspiring 2bo4 moments. After a gentle cover of Africa, Carleen Anderson and Valerie Etienne begin to shine in maybe their most inspired interpretations so far, taking the monikers of Mardou Fox and Jean Caramouce, and even Gallagher (Earl Zinger) himself gives back vocals and a bit more in most of the tracks. The sound is the most opaque variant of the genre, like the likwid biskit productions, but they manage to blend the vocals in a way that the final tracks sound like a prayer or a lament, very heartfelt. The rhytms are complex as ever, the approach to the Bugz people tricks is noticeable, and the highlights are many, ending with a kind of mad dance around the firing invoking spirits of lust that is "Moonblood". It's so good that many times I miss this approach when I listen to the cheesiest moments of Two Banks Of Four. Very recommended, and more than that if you have followed/liked either of the mentioned groups above.
