Furious Angels [Bonus Disc]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Klinge
Originally from Australia, Rob Dougan has been active in the U.K. club scene since the early '90s; he's a noted producer and remixer, working with Moby, U2, Kylie Minogue, and others. But as he reveals on his solo debut, Furious Angels, he's also a remarkable composer. Balancing a 60-piece orchestra, steady house beats, electronic burbles and pulses, and, often, his own dramatic, passionate vocals, Dougan creates grand, sweeping epics. "Clubbed to Death" is already a classic. Featured in The Matrix credited there to Rob D., the instrumental is a masterpiece of orchestral house music, one that appeals as much to the brain as to the body. Furious Angels' title track which...

Originally from Australia, Rob Dougan has been active in the U.K. club scene since the early '90s; he's a noted producer and remixer, working with Moby, U2, Kylie Minogue, and others. But as he reveals on his solo debut, Furious Angels, he's also a remarkable composer. Balancing a 60-piece orchestra, steady house beats, electronic burbles and pulses, and, often, his own dramatic, passionate vocals, Dougan creates grand, sweeping epics. "Clubbed to Death" is already a classic. Featured in The Matrix credited there to Rob D., the instrumental is a masterpiece of orchestral house music, one that appeals as much to the brain as to the body. Furious Angels' title track which is also featured in The Matrix: Reloaded begins with Dougan's raspy, confidential voice threatening, "If you go, furious angels will bring you back to me." The track builds slowly on a bed of strings before exploding with anthemic club beats. The disc most often recalls the cinematic soundscapes of Barry Adamson and Portishead -- especially on the second disc of instrumental versions -- as well as the over-the-top ballads of Pulp and the Pet Shop Boys. But it also touches upon the understated melancholy of the Blue Nile "Nothing at All" and the woozy barroom narratives of Tom Waits "Drinking Song". Dougan, however, is an original talent, and Furious Angels is that rare club-music album that sounds as great in the home as it does in the club.

    A talented singer/songwriter/composer has landed...

    Rob Dougan is the unofficial poster boy for The Matrix Trilogy as he has made songs that appear in most of the crucial scenes. His first song "Clubbed to Death" and the remix of it "Chatau" (which appears on the Reloaded ost, when Neo fights in the weapon room) are two of his best songs. The title track (furious angels) can be heard in The Matrix Reloaded when Neo fights the "upgrades". Dougan's voice is a nice blend of Sting and Sinatra, while his tracks all have a Portishead vibe to them. The sultry voice of the female leads of groups like Portishead and Curve have been replaced with the raspy, unconventional voice of Dougan, who sings each song with a passion that must be heard (such as "Left me for Dead", and "One and the Same"). Very acid jazzy and very cool. Most of the tracks here are backed by a full orchestra, which actually works with this type of music(PNYC-Portishead Live in NY anyone?) and complements Dougan's unique vision of the album which itself is very classy and refined. I envision this album being played at an uber modern sexy bar/lounge that has no inhibitions, where the wine flows, the people are beautiful, and the bouncers won't let you in. This album is a breath of fresh air as it introduces a new genre of music, I just wish it had a name. Visit his official web site to get an idea of what i'm talkin about...
