Yeah just released today. Comes with a nice photo montage.

I downloaded an advance copy about two months ago - pretty good, but Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi still kicks my ass the most.

Shaolin Satellite = the shit

Shinehead is supposed to be on it. I'm gonna pick it up next week.

Yeah he does the vocals on "State of the Uncion". Overall the vocals are fuck'en sick on this album. Like I said earlier, heavy on the reggae dub.

A really diverse album.

They sort of took everything I liked about the Mirror Conspiracy and put it all into one new album.

I like the ethnic influences.

how does it compare to their first album... "sounds from the thievery hi-fi"??

I think that was their best effort compared to the second album, still haven't picked up their newest.

I'll have to disagree on this one. I'd say why but NOW magazine said it so perfectly for me. Then again, that's just one man's opinion... or two in this case.

THIEVERY CORPORATION THE RICHEST MAN IN BABYLON (18TH STREET LOUNGE) NN

You can almost imagine the two cads behind Thievery Corporation assembling their loungey downtempo music, casually tossing in a little reggae here, a little Indian vibe there. Sure, the beats are smooth, but The Richest Man In Babylon, like everything Thievery Corporation has done, is pure exotica. Elements from different cultures are randomly mixed in to sound profound, but ultimately mean nothing. It's a world where played-out U Roy voice-overs and anonymous sitar breaks float in and out, and the same shuffle beat plays on every track. As easy and empty as listening gets. Thievery Corporation chill at the Opera House November 16.
