  • Summary: The second mix album from Irish DJ/recording artist/film composer David Holmes weaves together obscure soul tracks from the 60s and 70s with short instrumental bits composed by Holmes (under his Free Association moniker).

    Holmes's genius is to create a space in which these records are not only at home, but where they shine. [Apr 2002, p.128]

    It is really his unsurpassed ability to access tracks that time forgot that makes this album so great. [May 2002, p.96]
  3. It sounds oh-so-fashionable, but it isn't simply an instance of über-credible semi-celeb DJ/producer wanking all over his decks and a handful of records no one ever heard of; every single track is not only quality, but accessible.
  4. A mix album of sheer quality.... This should be the soundtrack to every party this summer.

    i dont know the guy but would like to know he manages to sound like 10 - 20 in one go... i.e. i wouldnt say its its accessible to all as mojo man says but still, however, would like to know to what extent mr holmes plays his own on this one...ive got some of his stuff where he clearly uses hitherto unheard gear, my ultimate question is, is, the balance between FBSlim and personal genius..all comments pls handle with care Expand
