  • Summary: The British techno pioneer(s) (now down to just one founding member, George Evelyn), return with their first studio album in three years.

  1. Positive: 5 out of 13

  1. A blissed-out menagerie of subtly morphing beats and elegant melodies within a dub framework. [Oct 2002, p.88]
  2. 80
    A good chunk of soulful melody tinged with delightful, lackadaisical vocals and reggae vibrations.
  3. 80
    The perfect soundtrack to summer in the city. [Oct 2002, p.111]
  4. Maybe while stoned it makes sense, but sober, Mind Elevation is more confusing than uplifting.
  5. This friskier, fresher take on Evelyn's previous fare is especially well judged bearing in mind that the last thing the world needs is another chill-out album. [Sep 2002, p.111]
  6. 60
    The album fares best when Evelyn lets his sampler do the talking. [#56, p.101]
  7. 40
    Like Morcheeba at their worst. [#10, p.124]
