Album Review

Given the opportunity to strut their stuff before the wired masses, Thievery Corporation made the most of it, showcasing not only their own music, but that of their ESL labelmate's on this live AOL session mix album. Needless to say, the duo included a clutch of choice numbers from their latest album, The Cosmic Game — the fabulous, dancehall flavored grinder "Warning Shots," the dark and dangerous "Holographic," the propulsive "The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter" (here remixed by Louie Vega), and Govinda's floating-through-the-clouds remix of "Satyam Shivam Sundaram," as well as tossing in their earlier "Language Symbolique" for good measure.

There's a bit of time travel as well, as the set revisits the days of soul with "Can I Get a Witness," and slides back into the early '60 with Chris Joss' surfy "You've Been Spiked."

An excellent performance from a top-notch DJ team.
