5.0 classicNick Butler EMERITUS | June 26th 06

What's the plural of genius, anyway? Simon Posford and Raja Ram are that. Shpongle were, from 1998 to 2005, simply the best electronic act in the world, if not the best in any genre. And as if two unbelievable, mind-expanding albums weren't enough, they went and made Nothing Lasts - the best trance album ever, one of the best psychedelic albums ever, one of the the best progressive albums ever, shit, one of the best albums ever PERIOD. Every track is a little masterpiece; when added up and linked together superbly, they make one 60-odd minute odyssey into the minds of the most under-valued musicians of the turn of the century. So they did the only logical thing and split up. How the hell could they follow this? And so, with their mighty third album, Shpongle departed the world, having forever left their legend in the hearts of thousands of worshippers, and ensured that in the future, they'll mean just as much to thousands more.

If you're going to get music by Shpongle you need both albums. This one is just as awesome.r

My, oh my. I'm actually speechless to the level of perfection this album reaches. The instrumental work is just outstandung, and it would be cool if the guys from Shpongle just stoped there; but see, the thing is, they're also incredibly consistent. There isn't a filler song in sight, and every song just flows to the next one. And before you've realized it, an hour of your life has passed by; but it's an hour you won't, by any means, want back. Whithin the genre this might just be the magnum opus of any kind of electronic music. This is the album against all others should be messured. I... I've run out of words and expresions to further explain why this is as good as it is... it just is. Electronic album of the century.

Not quite as lame as their other albums, but still pretty lame.

Would very much like to say that Nothing Lasts is a classic, if it wasn't for all that noises that appear on almost every track.
