Meeker have already clocked up hits in the UK's dance charts but they're far, far more than some anonymous creation of a bloke with a sampler. They have in Rachel Morrison a bluesy soul sistah one moment, a wistful, little-girl-lost the next, while Tom E Morrison's scratchy guitar riffs come on like a modern day version of James Brown's Jimmy Nolen. The tracks here range from poppy, undulating swayers like the kind of thing DBA occasionally give us to relentless Underworld-esque club beats of rhythmic power. Standouts include the compulsive "Let's Come Together" and the wickedly guitar propelled "Save Me" while those looking for more authentic chillout music than that heard on those anaemic Kingsway albums should investigate "Mercy". But wherever one goes on this set one finds a creative dance aggregation completely on top of their game.
