CULTURE OF FEAR - Thievery Corporation

EMUSIC-02652456

This album is like an audio ride where every twist, turn, and straightaway is a pleasure to behold. I wasn't sure what to expect as I have never heard of them before, but very glad to have found their sound. No two songs the same, they traverse genres like the most skilled artist. A true joy to find and add to my music collection.

A wholesome purchase!

Experiencing a new Thievery Corporation album is like visiting a favourite local record shop. You never know what you're going to find, but you know you'll always walk out of there with an armful of good tracks. Love the opener, love 'Is It Over' and love the rest.

Have No Fear - Thievery Is Here

This is what they used to call a grower. The more you listen, the more the subtleties of harmony and rhythm come to the fore. While it may lack some of the righteous wrath of Radio Retaliation, it's still a very strong album. Succumb to the bass, not the culture of fear...

Great Album.

As usual, the thievery are musical masters. This is a great album. While coming off as bit of a departure from past works it still feels very right. The political influence of "Babylon Central", can be felt right up front, on the title track. This, coupled with the anti-dogmatic undertones of "Overstand" make this album a very intellectual journey. Gone (and missed) are the sitars that graced earlier albums like "Radio Retaliation". The "outernational sound" it seems, has been reduced to a much narrower scope. While the album feels much more dub influenced than previous efforts, it is easy to hear the individual sounds of it's guest contributors, but it somehow retains the classic "thievery" sound. Thoroughly enjoyable, Culture of Fear feels somehow focused, yet out of focus. For me, the standout track would be "is it over" featuring Shana Halligan of Bitter:sweet.

Perfection as usual!

There is Thievery Corporation and then there is everyone else in pop music. These guys exist on their own astral plane somewhere. It is a place you love going to and hate to leave. Like the edgier sounds here a lot, especially the title track.

First Impressions...

adelman.nick

This is the album I've been waiting for Thievery Corp to release. I felt that they departed from their original sound with the albums after "Richest Man in Babylon". But they have really returned with the TC essence with this album. This album has much more of a "Mirror Conspiracy" feel to it. Let's hope they step up the live show to what it used to be. As far as this album goes though, it will definitely be in frequent rotation on my playlist.

They Say All Music Guide

Despite its pointed title, Culture of Fear is not quite as politically minded as Thievery Corporation’s previous studio album. While dubwise tracks such as “Overstand” and “False Flag Dub,” along with the Mr. Lif feature “Culture of Fear,” continue the themes of 2008’s Radio Retaliation, a higher number of cuts — including “Take My Soul,” “Where It All Starts,” “Is It Over?,” and “Safar (The Journey)” — feature the duo’s heavy-lidded grooves with seductive female vocals. – Andy Kellman
