Barnes & Noble - Kurt B. Reighley
Groove Armada's installment of this after hours-oriented mix series boasts ample ebb and flow, spiking hip-hop and classic soul grooves with up-tempo treats. After opening with their own stripped-down reworking of A Tribe Called Quest's "Description of a Fool," the duo turn the heat up a notch via Barry White's smoldering "Playing Your Game Baby." The program hits its stride halfway through, moving through the Enigma-tic textures of BBG's "Snappiness" into the spacey neo-disco of "No. 1" by Sir Raymond Mang, with a rubber-band bass line reminiscent of Danny Wang's Balihu singles. "The Sound of Music," complete with handclaps and vocoder, continues the old-school ...

After opening with their own stripped-down reworking of A Tribe Called Quest's "Description of a Fool," the duo turn the heat up a notch via Barry White's smoldering "Playing Your Game Baby."

"The Sound of Music," complete with handclaps and vocoder, continues the old-school dance-floor vibe, before the energy tapers off with Al Green's passionate reading of the Doors' "Light My Fire" and the atmospheric piano noodling of Tears for Fears' "Pharaohs." Not as immediately accessible as other Back to Mine collections, Groove Armada's contribution still makes for an engaging glimpse into less-obvious elements of the aesthetic informing their own studio creations.
All Music Guide - Dean Carlson
It must be slightly frustrating to be Groove Armada. With the Fatboy Slim remix of "I See You Baby" slowly becoming Groove Armada's unrepresentative single that everybody seems to know, this personal installment into the Back to Mine mix series is where the heart of the band beats the most. No, this mix album is not a quick-draw of all sorts of proto-stupid, club-friendly gunplay to make people shake that ass. Instead it's an opportunity to help once again show people that the band is more about putting their firearms on the nightstand, resting one's behind on a comfy couch, and putting on some slow, amorous grooves. For starters, choosing songs like their great rhythmic romantic take on A Tribe Called Quest's "Description of a Fool" or the effective beats of Tony D can do nothing but help. Really, how many other bands would later holster Al Green right next to Roots Manuva? About mid-way through, though, it does delve into some seriously trite slap-jazz. These excursions think BBG and Sir Raymond Mang show just how dangerous it can be for musicians in the trip-hop realm to veer perilously close to Kenny G instead of Tricky. Regardless, Back to Mine is generally a mix that traces around an interesting idea: maybe the more trip-hop stylings of musicians have more in common with, say, Barry White than Brian Eno? That might not be so wrong. Because if the mainstream world considers Groove Armada to be the type of musicians to get to watch somebody wobble their buttocks, their actual mentality is more about the music to play after you get that person to go home with you. It wouldn't be so bad if more pacifists like Groove Armada were sheriffs from time to time.

    Slow Groove/funk that will help you wind down

    Oh My God! Someone has actually mixed Al Green doing a Doors cover. This album will stick you in "nod" mode from begining to end. I've turned so many people onto this, it's not funny. Spend most of my time with the last track (can you say Tears for Fears boys and girls, I thought you could) on repeat. This is a great album, much better than "Cats", I'll hear it again and again.

    This music deconstructs reality and builds it right up again on one contiunous mix. Really tells a story you dont understand til your altered. Good easy flow...Would love to meet any women into this group.
