speakerpeople - Parallel World

Described as a "soulful house project", it's hard to see the debut effort from speakerpeople appealing to fans of either of the two genres that Parallel World apparently resides in. It certainly won't appeal to soul fans given that the entire album is devoid of any kind of catchy, memorable rhythms and with a pedestrian tempo throughout, it's hard to see any house fan pulling shapes in clubs, even when under the influence. Arguably, the bonus remixes that come with the album are stronger efforts than the original tracks, especially the case on lead single 'Close Your Eyes', and it makes you wish that it was these interpretations that speakerpeople went with for the original tracks. However, there's only so much polish you can apply to the proverbial and even with the remixes, you're better off looking elsewhere for your fix of Saturday night fare.
