Thought So... is a bit of a travelogue for Nightmares on Wax, consisting of tracks recorded in locales ranging from Leeds to Ibiza -- and definitely many places in between. Utilizing an intriguing studio named Camper Van Somewhere (as in, "Recorded on the..."), George Evelyn and Robin Taylor-Firth keep their productions painfully sparse, par for the course in the NoW catalog.
In the fickle world of electronic music, it is something of a miracle if an act's sound manages to stay fresh and relevant for more than a few years, let alone the 17 since Nightmares On Wax's debut. Their sixth album, Thought So ..., fulfils all the expectations of an ageing chillout act. Nightmares On Wax have been making slinky, downtempo music for so long now that they can probably churn it out in their sleep.
