Let's just say it right at the start. In 'Sound Mirrors' Coldcut have made the best album of their long and illustrious career. It's not something you can state lightly, but there you are. Their production has never sounded better, their ideas have never been more various or interesting, they've never had such a great cast of guests feat. Saul Williams, Jon Spencer, Roots Manuva and more and then integrated them into their sound so well. Yes, it's a record that is deeper, funkier, cleverer, more engaged and more engaging than anything they've done before. At a time of intense musical conservatism it's bracing to find a production team who are still willing to push and to keep pushing but who, in doing so, create inspired, accessible music that transcends genre. This is a record which shows once again that Coldcut acknowledge no boundaries and set themselves no limits and, that in doing so, they create timeless records for whoever is prepared to join them. A moment's reflection should be enough for you to know that it's time to listen. Available now in the UK. Released 21st Feb US/Canada. Visit Myspace.
