Taken on its own, Volume 3: Further in Time is a fun, multi-textured album that combines a club groove with traditional sounds from Celtic music, Africa, and beyond. However, it does little to distinguish itself from previous Afro-Celt Sound System releases, so for people familiar with the band's previous work, the formula seems to be wearing a little bit thin. One highlight is "When You're Falling," which features a guest vocal from Peter Gabriel, but even that pales next to Sinéad O'Connor's cameo on the previous Afro-Celt release.
Afro Celt Sound System is known for blending electronica with elements of African and Celtic music, almost always to very good effect. The greatest thing this band does is mix in a variety of musical styles creating comething fresh and original. I really like this record. I bought the MP3 album (love that instant gratification!) and started listening to it right away. It's on permanent rotation now when I listen to music on my laptop.
Volume 3: Further In Time. Overview (current section).
What the Afro Celt Sound System is most pioneering in Volume Three: Further in Time is the enhanced sounding ethnic electronica style it first started in 1996. In the development of five years, they have never sounded more glitzy, cohesive, abrasive, or colorful as there are in Volume Three. Proof" Shadowman is the ultimate example of a trademark Afro Celt song, breathing life into both the Celtic and African culture while storming the listener in frays and storms of electronica, but coming out with something quite beautiful. They also developed the current Irish sound they first established in 1996, another advantage to this album. Finally, this album altogether has been the best effort made by the Afro Celts besides Anatomic. This is the power that true world music has, because it really picked up the pace of the world music revolution.
