Album Review

Though his simplistic arrangements and often-repeated themes mark him as an artist more likely to be heard in an elevator than a jukebox, Marc Antoine is among the best of the mood music merchants active during the '90s and 2000s. A soft-toned player of the Spanish guitar, Antoine has a gift for intricate yet non-complex playing as well as strong melodies, and his compositions occasionally reveal a surprising depth (if only he'd delegate the drum-programming duties to someone beside himself). This 12-track collection, The Very Best of Marc Antoine, spans five of his LPs for GRP, beginning with "Latin Quarter," (far and away his best performance). None of the rest rise above the level of Muzak, though the addition of live drummer Lil' John Roberts for "On the Strip" makes a big difference, and Antoine summons a bit of magic for the title track of Cruisin'.

Musak for the enlightened

We hear and often choose to ignore musak in elevators, supermarkets, airport bars and hotels. It is something that most of us easily forget, but somehow it embeds itself into the sub conscious to reappear and stop you in your tracks one day. Then one day a tune pops up again bringing back nostalgic memories. So it was when I first stumbled upon Marc Antoine. Like most people my introduction came from a Café Del Mar CD, with a track called Unity. I first heard this in Ibiza and seemed to sum up the mood of the time as the sun went down over the sea, something that remains in my mind. Much of this album is very smooth, likeable and laid back so if the mood is right especially in the evenings why not enlighten your views on musak with this best of collection?
