Consumer Guide Reviews:

Timeless [FFRR, 1995]
If Goldie is to jungle what Tricky is to trip hop--the "accessible" name brand for strangers in wonderland--then Martin Denny was Dr. Livingston. Occasionally some diva takes up a tune, but mainly this pleasant, far from arrhythmic soundspace posits an impressionistic respite from hardcore techno, with warm links to fusion, movie music, and the tragically neglected legacy of Rick Wakeman. C+

Saturnz Return [London/FFRR, 1998] Dud
