Album Review: Sound Mirrors by Coldcut

Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

Sound Mirrors suggests that 1989's What's That Noise? wasn't a slick fluke, but that there are actually two Coldcuts. There's the Coldcut who sound like they're controlling the uncontrollable with jagged shards of hip-hop and dance music bouncing joyfully around the room while sneering at the conventional song. Let Us Play!, the unstoppable Journeys by DJ, and their Solid State radio program all fall into this category, all featuring maverick music that made the un-ironic guest appearances of Lisa Stansfield and the bubbly/forgotten Yazz on What's That Noise? seem like youthful pop folly.

Opinion: Mediocre

Coldcut's dynamic duo, Jonathan More and Matt Black, return again. Surprisingly, this time they're not in quite as playful a mood as we've come to expect from them. Sound Mirrors carries their audio signature, of course, and has its moments of goofing, but for better or worse, a number of these songs have a more serious mood and a slower time signature than anticipated.
