A Guy Called Gerald To All Things What They Need
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: !K7
Gerald could probably make a great d&b album in his sleep. This is not that album-it‘s far more interesting. Always a boundary-pusher, Gerald ditches defined genres, going for a sound that feels alternately lush and sparse, atmospheric and moody. "Millennium Sanhedrin" features spoken word from Ursula Rucker, followed by the evocative (and aptly named) "Call for Prayer." "Tajeen" pairs tabla and synths, and "Strangest Changes" reunites Gerald with Finley Quaye (who showed up on Gerald‘s "Finley‘s Rainbow" years ago). All hard to classify, but the album doesn‘t need labels to succeed.
