The Herbaliser - Blow Your Headphones
(2xLP/CD) Ninja Tune ZEN28/ZENCD28, 1997-03-25

Info :
Imaginez que l'on vous propose un voyage dans un vaisseau spatial style Star Trek Enterprise, confiné dans une pièce où pousseraient toutes sortes d'herbacées illicites (un végétal hors la loi: c'est pas ridicule ça? ), et bien la musique idéale pour ce voyage fantasmatique est celle de The Herbaliser. Ce combo londonnien, après une tournée harrassante en Europe, sort un "Blow your headphones" qui est une suite logique à "Remedies" (premier album super hip hop hallucinné). Donnant raison à nos attentes, le groupe parvient encore une fois à étonner chacun des neurones qui réagissent une dernière fois avant de rendre l'âme à la dernière note de l'album toujours aussi hip hop mais pas rap: et c'est tant mieux. - Tiff
