Title: Slow Motion
Format: CDS (CD Single)
Label: Compost Records (@)
Rated: *****
For all intents and purposes "Slow Motion" by Minus 8 is a kind of jazz record, a new take on Lounge Jazz with elements of house, trip-hop, pop and other genres thrown in (including a reggae song!). There are a few different vocalists featured on this record, with some instrumental tracks thrown in as well.

The most featured vocalist here is Virág Keszthelyi, who is really great on each track, as she displays a very nice amount of range and diversity. The other vocalists are quite good as well, especially Rachel Montana. I prefer the vocal tracks here to the instrumental ones because while they make be immaculately produced, they just fall a bit flat and fade into the background without the vocals to keep the listener's attention.

All of the tracks here are good, but he highlights to me would be "Close Your Eyes", "Juy" and "Everyone's Gotta Learn Sometime".

All in all I think that "Slow Motion" is a nice record that should appeal to fans of trip-hop, chill out, smooth jazz and dramatic electro-pop music in general. If that is your cup of tea, check it out.
