Above And Beyond - Group Therapy

Sometimes, the eternal struggle exists between finding music to review and then having the time to listen to multiple albums in a day to get a proper review out to you guys. But some days my friends, something in the world aligns just perfectly and it all comes together in perfect harmony. Today is one of those days. Techno Tuesday and New Music Tuesday are combining in this post to bring you Above and Beyond's latest drop, 'Group Therapy'. I reviewed an album by them a while back, and gave it a very positive review. If you don't recall from a couple of months, they are a British trance group that starting dropping fat beats around 2000 or so. From the couple records that I've listened to now, they really lay over a ton of beat over a nice vocal. This record has a couple really spacey tracks that are pretty solid as well. This is a collaboration record of sorts, that is utilizing the skills of Zoƫ Johnston and Richard Bedford. If you don't know who those two are, they are both fairly well known singer/songwriters from Britain as well. They might even be doing some vocals on this album, I can't find all the credits - probably since this just dropped today. I'm trying to figure out how to compare this to you guys, and my best foot forward is telling you it's like Jamiroquai on steroids. That sort of vocal and feel, but beefed up to the nth degree in terms of production and sound. This is a great dance album, and so far, Above and Beyond hasn't been afraid to go - well, above and beyond to me. Check it out, and dance the day away.
