  • 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. A blissed-out menagerie of subtly morphing beats and elegant melodies within a dub framework. [Oct 2002, p.88]
  2. 80
    The perfect soundtrack to summer in the city. [Oct 2002, p.111]
  3. 80
    A good chunk of soulful melody tinged with delightful, lackadaisical vocals and reggae vibrations.
  4. 60
    The album fares best when Evelyn lets his sampler do the talking. [#56, p.101]
  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. Maybe while stoned it makes sense, but sober, Mind Elevation is more confusing than uplifting.
  7. 40
    Like Morcheeba at their worst. [#10, p.124]
