So what's the difference between stealing and borrowing? in borrowing you give back and Thievery Corporation, while they pillage multiple genres of music give back tons in return.That big fat dubby wall of sound that is their trademark seems to wrap itself around just about anything they chuck at it. I really like how Chuck Brown ( yes of Soul Searchers fame), Seu Jorge from Brazil, Femi Kuti , sitarist Anoushka Shankar and several shpoppy female vocalists can co-exist on one CD, especially as the songs range between political manifestos and sappy luv songs, but they do. Its all in the bass line, as usual.
They should rename themselves the League of Borrowers, especially as the jacket design will render the CD itself very insecure once the shrink wrap is off. Lovely poster though.
