    If you're after more trip-hop that sounds like Portishead, Massive Attack and Tricky... it's right here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5_eGA1ztGc

    I don't like the change. I feel like all the electronic has gotten thrown out the window. :(

    This new album is terrific, so proud they've invested on Brazil's rhythms, which is my homeland.

    Ahhh... Thievery Corporation have made a true bossanova album. I'm enjoying the stripped down change.

    As one of the top listeners... This is the worst album from TC. Monotonous and boring. I have a feeling that if I'd to listen to it 2 times in a row,I'd get an urge to slit my wrists. Depressive and inert, too slow and annoying. Every song is the same as the previous one. Wth happened to TC I loved?!?

    New album is class, laying back with my feet up in my front porch, cup of tea in hand, looking out at the Atlantic on a windy yet sunny day. Quality.
