    Thanks for the suggestion Neil.
    I thought it was going to be interesting at the start with the Argentine Tango flavour, however after a while I was saying to myself "get on with it".
    So I guess its not my sort of music. Always good to listen to something different and it would be boring if we all liked the same old stuff.

    It reminds me of zero 7 a lot, if you like this you will really like the zero 7 albums, if you haven't heard them. All those bass lines, electronic pianos and use of wind instruments and add in a good vocal.

    Added to my tidal playlist I think. Thank you

    Check out the latest Tosca album called going going going, if you like electronic stuff - came out in Feb 17. Fantastic dorfmeister/huber collaboration group.

    I'd happily contribute a review for May if available. I think I know what it will be judging what I'm listening to a lot of. Easily best new electronic album of 2017 so far for me. Sorry I'm going going going now (and should get to bed) and a clue but no Puccini opera too. Now thats made it obvious.

    This turned out to be a little lesson for me. Checking out music on my headphones during my lunch break is far from ideal. At home with lights down and a nice glass of the red stuff is more like it. I really enjoyed this album, coming alive on my HiFi at home as opposed to rather dull on the headphones. Great textures, great musicianship. The vocal tracks grabbed me less so but it's going to get further listens so I may change opinion on that part.

    I used to have an EP of theirs years ago called 'Diabolus'. Terrific track. Anyway listening to this prompted me to pull out some other stuff from that time in my life when I was listening this kind of thing such as Red Snapper, Thievery Corporation, Fila Brasillia etc. All good stuff.

    Thanks for the suggestion Neil. A very good record. I'll give it a limp 5/10 on my lunch break! But a sparkling 9/10 on the sofa in the sweet spot.

    Cheers

    Loz
