Album Review

Where most trip-hop artists downplay melody as a matter of principle, Olive (keyboardist/trumpeter/producer Tim Kellett and vocalist Ruth-Ann) embraces it almost defiantly, maintaining the rhythmic interest of electronica and the generally dark undercurrents of trip-hop while simultaneously delivering tunes that are swooningly lovely without ever sounding quite commercial. The lead track on the band's Maverick debut is perhaps its best: "Love Affair" glides on an updraft of sampled strings and a subtly jungle-flavored breakbeat, while the sung melody (especially in the chorus, where the chord progression takes an unusual and delightful turn) climbs from peak to emotional peak. The rest of the program is almost as good, from the slow and funky "Trickle" and a tweaked and bleepy version of the 10cc classic "I'm Not in Love" to a slightly Latin-tinged kiss-off song titled "Creature of Comfort." (Several minutes after the end of the album's last track is a hidden song called "Take My Hand.")

Never thought I

Man I came across this group by accident I was listening to yahoo music back in '05 and streaming and I actually started to pay attention. The song was "Beyond the fray". Im not into this type of Music but I am into Anyways all the songs in the Album are great..I don't really have a fav. If your new and wondering to know how good trip-hop and electronica sound then pick up then buy Olive..

One of my Top 10 CDs

I first discovered Ruth Ann solo and LOVED her album " what about us" and i didn't realize she had another band..... i guess i'm working backwards... so now i am going to download ALL of Olive's albums...... SO WORTH IT .


Formed: 1994 in London, England

Genre: House

Years Active: '90s

The epitome of the quieter, coffee-table side of singer/songwriter electronica and trip-hop, Olive was formed by producers Tim Kellett and Robin Taylor-Firth (former members of, respectively, Simply Red and Nightmares on Wax) with vocalist Ruth-Ann Boyle. Kellett connected with Boyle while playing keyboards for a live incarnation of the Durutti Column (he manipulated her tape-looped vocals while on-stage), and asked her to join him in a new recording project. With Kellett writing lyrics and the addition...
