  • Summary: The English trip-hop outfit's fourth studio album features unlikely guest vocal appearances from rapper Slick Rick and Lambchop's Kurt Wagner.

    The entire album is a beauty.... The most adventurous album of their career. [Aug 2002, p.110]
  2. [Morcheeba] return to what they do best. [July 2002, p.117]
  3. The band's best record in some time, and for anyone not a purist, it's possibly Morcheeba's best ever.
  4. 60
    Morcheeba's lightly shaken, hardly stirring sounds will doubtless satisfy fans, band and record company. [Aug 2002, p.104]
  5. Morcheeba make a lovely sound, but they seem to be broadcasting from a very bright and pretty hell.
  6. Teeters between cool languor and bland lethargy. [6 Sep 2002, p.86]
  7. It’s actually Dire Straits gone trip-hop and everyone involved... should be brutally beaten to death with a tray of Ferrero Rocher.

    The best female voice of the decade (sic!) plus some great easy-listening songs. Highly relaxing album.

    The album is good. Some songs like for example the first one are masterpieces. I think that they have fallen into a comfortable position as a band. Their last album before this one was experimental and it seemed that the band was trying or looking for something new. i am happy with the album and I look forward to seeing them live in January in T.

    I must thank Pete Norris, their producer, for giving me a promotional copy of Charango. I loved the first two. I am sorry to have to agree with NME on this one. MORcheeba indeed. Expand
