Album Review

Following the massive success of their debut, Moodfood, studio maestros Moodswings, consisting of Fred Hood and Grant Showbiz, returned with their 1997 follow-up, Psychedelicatessen. Moodfood was a breath of fresh air, and a tough act to follow, but Psychedelicatessen manages to live up to the high expectations created by that record. The duo incorporates steel drums and concert pianists into tracks that envelope the listener, while creating a thoroughly engaging blend of dance, trance, pop, and rock. The best tracks are the aching "The Great Sound of Letting Go" and "God Knows What I Want." A stirring medley that blends Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" with "Oh Happy Day" includes a glorious vocal performance by Tanita Tikaram. Breathtaking.

Like their previous album, a must-download.

“Moodfood”—for some unknown reason—touched me deeply. This one, too. I think the only problem with this group and their incredible analog-produced digital sound was that it was about 10-15 years too early to be understood by the public. While groups like Enigma and Moby came along at just about the right time, Moodfood was little understood, except for the signature tracks on the two albums, which did receive a lot of airplay (“Redemption Song” on this album, and “State of Independence” from the previous album).

Redemption song (oh happy day)

Its a lovely music, i love the arrangement and the recording.
