All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
When an artist you've never heard of is said to have sold "over 10 million records worldwide," it's usually time to turn off the TV and go to bed. But when the artist in question has managed to get Trilok Gurtu, Bill Laswell, and Nitin Sawhney to help him out with his sophomore effort, then it's a fair bet you're dealing with someone more interesting than Richard Clayderman. Robert Miles a transplanted Swiss-Italian whose real name is Roberto Concina is credited with keyboards and programming throughout Organik, the mood of which is pretty consistently dark and downtempo. There are hints of tribal/trance exotica on "Separation," while the uncredited female singer ...

Robert Miles a transplanted Swiss-Italian whose real name is Roberto Concina is credited with keyboards and programming throughout Organik, the mood of which is pretty consistently dark and downtempo. There are hints of tribal/trance exotica on "Separation," while the uncredited female singer interacts nicely with Dhruba Ghosh's sarangi on "Paths" to create a sort of bhangrafied trip-hop. Laswell contributes fretless bass on the melodically enticing but still slightly creepy "Release Me" and on two improvisations, both of them just as creepy without being as melodically enticing. Overall, the program will appeal greatly to texture freaks, those with a taste for the unnervingly exotic, and those who generally enjoy anything Laswell gets involved with.

    Reinventing Robert Miles

    Organik must stand on its own merit if it is to be truly enjoyed. First I will put out in the open my initial disappointments and or fears. There are no linear notes! For an album that is so differnet, so unique the listener needs an introduction of some type to know what he is trying to do artistically. I only know from looking at his web site that Organik is Robert's darker view of the world. Another disappointment is the new age label narada releasing Organik. Might be no casue for concern but I fear he will en up in the new age bargain bin. So with that I will now get onto what I liked.Organik gathers together several talented artists including the London Session Orchestra. The orchestra's involvement in such songs as Tsbol, Wrong and Pour Te Paler make them stand out as highlights of the album. The strings are chilling and shows the darker image that Robert is trying to portray. Paths is the only ''vocal'' song to be found on the album and even though the sound is very strange it does have potential to be a great dance hit if remixed properly. Overall I enjoyed Organik. I am happy Robert finally gets to create music that he enjoys. I will support him through the highs and lows. Robert Miles is incredibly talented and I think Organik overall might be ahead of its time. I hope his fans will continue their support even if at first this album doesn't suit them.
