iTunes Review

In the hands of Tricky, Portishead, and Massive Attack, trip-hop earned a reputation for being dark, even claustrophobic. On their second album, though, Morcheeba preserved the style's sedate tempos and sultry atmospheres while opening up a world of warmth and color. Hip-hop beats and turntable scratches are fleshed out with acoustic guitars, country blues, a splash of reggae, and even sitar, while singer Skye Edwards holds the spotlight with her hushed, soulful delivery. As the cover art underscores, it's best heard in a horizontal position.

Customer Reviews

One of the original trip-hop albums.

1998 served as the emergence of trip-hop, and Morcheeba, along with Everything But The Girl, Portishead and Massive Attack lead the way. This album was chill before chill became a genre. Do yourself a favor, buy the album, pour yourself a drink, and slide onto a comfy couch while you listen to Skye Edwards flow into your sub-conscious. Yes. it's THAT good.

Truly a calming album

I never really got into Portishead or knew why anyone would compare them to Morcheeba. To me they're night and day. I was turned on to this by British radio that happened to play The Sea. I was blown away just by that. Sky Edwards is amazingly soulful. The tittle Big Calm says it all. The opening track is like a rapture, Friction and Shoulder Holster are great as a kind of trippy rock R&B. Part of the Process is a track that points to the bands future direction. Truly Amazing.

Big Calm

Simply it never gets old. Awesome overall abum

The trio was formed in 1995 when the Godfreys decided to go out on their own after co-producing six tracks for David Byrne's album Feelings. They submitted several tapes of their instrumental demos to labels around London,...
