Album Review

Together with Kinobe, Air, and Groove Armada, Simon Mills and Nail Tolliday forged their own rivulet from the glacial chill-out movement with their debut album, Programmed to Love. Built upon a foundation of cheeky titles and boot sale samples, there was enough variety to distinguish the Nottingham duo from the swath of other producers knocking out similar groove therapy. This sophomore outing from the pair is a much smoother affair than its predecessor, though; as befits the horizontal nature of the music, it takes a few tracks for the album to get up to speed — the Beloved's Jon Marsh drawing the elements together with his contribution to the luscious "Beautiful Otherness." From there it's winners all the way, B.J. Cole's bottleneck slide work the catalyst for a sweeping segue from the Hawaiian guitar of "Moonbeams" into Billie Jo Spears' faux country "So Long Without You." Having pulled Greek vocalist Nana Mouskouri from obscurity on their previous album, so '70s teen sensation David Essex receives the resurrection here, coming on like a mid-career Bowie in the ridiculous frippery of "Stay the Same." Bent thrives on these juxtapositions, however, and it comes as little surprise to find the pair quickly change direction, dropping the uptempo house "Magic Love" before finishing the album with a flourish by way of a pair of orchestrally draped beats and pieces. Fans and newcomers alike should check out the kings of the genre.

Masterpiece

This album is solo beautiful. I love all of it. Nice homage to Toni T on Magic Love. Wow.

I never grow tired of this album

I've had tis album for over a decade. Whenever it comes into rotation, it always brings a smile to my face. I have a library with well over a thousand titles. This is one of my favorites.

Awesome in a rainbow on a dusty horizon.

This ablum has been around forever but nothing can top the feelings I get from "So long without you." Best track ever and I can say I honestly dont car for the country genre but I'm will to give it a chance after hearing "So long without you."

Thanks

Biography

Formed: 1999 in Nottingham, England

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '00s

Based out of the sheriff-friendly town of Nottingham, England, the duo of Simon Mills and Neil "Nail" Tolliday met as housemates and formed the flippantly picturesque Bent — a group earmarking a page somewhere between an early morning Air and a less cacophonic Bentley Rhythm Ace. Sonically, the band's primary influence boils down to becoming disillusioned with house music and hoarding mounds of bad records. Lo-culture samples accessorize jazz, rock, and hip-hop pulses with a heady sense of...
