Album Review

Though Groove Armada's Andy Cato and Tom Findlay have been justly praised for their production talents, the duo's fourth album, Lovebox, takes them down the path of production gloss. The opener, "Purple Haze," features Nappy Roots backed by a restrained guitar grind, while Richie Havens (making a repeat appearance) contributes yet another deeply felt performance on "Hands of Time." "Final Shakedown" rips a page from the Basement Jaxx book, with a swinging, slapping house production and the ragga-tinged vocals of Red Rat. "Madder," the only track on the album performed by a band, rides a groove straight out of the Clash's "Magnificent Seven," with a solid sung-spoken rap by M.A.D. Another track that works well is "Remember," a gradually ascending epic with a sampled Sandy Denny vocal (lifted from Fairport Convention's Unhalfbricking) echoed by the affirmations of the London Community Gospel Choir.

The Best

In my humble opinion . . . this is by far the BEST Groove Armada Album that they have produced. I have them all because I consider myself a loyal fan, but this is really the most fun of the bunch. Even my 6-year old daughter loves to groove to Purple Haze. ;-)

My favorite Groove Armada CD!

Prior to Itunes, I would know when a relationship was ending, when this CD mysteriously disappeared from my collection. The negative review needs to placed within the context of time. The Clash were not all that present on the radio in the US. 'The Magnificent Seven' was not really in the public consciousness. In addition, if you don't know where The Clash got that riff, you shouldn't be reviewing music. Most of my relationships have involved people who were not alive when The Clash were around. For them, 'Madder' will have to suffice. I don't know a single person who has heard that song...and not loved it!

Best Album

Love the Armada, and even more so (evident in this album), a group with the ability to step back and try something new.
