What I heard when I finally popped it into my stereo was a great selection of downbeat tracks - all very smooth but always upbeat enough to keep you from drifting off. Great dinner party/chill music for when you've had enough of your Air's or Zero 7's. In my opinion, an underappreciated gem of the field.
Now, a great many artists (an abnormal number of whom record for F Comm) have paved that way, developing techniques that allow for a single producer and perhaps a handful of guest musicians to actually sound like a full samba orchestra from outer space. And on his debut album, he stays safely on the left.
