    This is an album of magnificent segues and, no surprise given the source, beautiful female vocals. [Sep 2001, p.155]

    Underneath it all, they're not much different than the fans who buy their records, and it's that adoration of sound that makes Back to Mine shine.
  3. Detroit techno artists Juan Atkins and Carl Craig rub shoulders with back-to-basics rappers The Roots and electro-folkie Beth Orton (on the Watt-produced "Stars All Seem to Weep"), creating a distinctive chillout vibe out of disparate genres.
  4. A mildly diverting collection of the good (DJ Cam, Model 500), bad (Beth Orton, Mary Margaret O'Hara) and pleasantly forgettable (Dubtribe Sound System, Ananda Project).
  5. 40
    EBTG still have some way to go before they can mix such disparate elements together successfully. [Jun/Jul 2001, p.108]

    Great addition to your library, think of Back To Mine as a series of recommendations from people with good taste in music. Beats some of the random compilations you could get, and has an interesting thread of mixing that draws the tracks together. I would recommend this one, as well as the ones by Talvin Singh and Groove Armada. Also, the DJ Kicks series is worth looking into, but they can be hit or miss. Expand
