This is certainly not an album that many people have heard of (much less the band Deep Forest!). I’ve owned it for a number of years and enjoyed it quite a bit, and I was very surprised to see how few reviews exist for MUSIC DETECTED.

I’ve been a fan of Deep Forest for many years, and have enjoyed listening as their style shifted from the electro influenced chill (infused with the overlay of indigenous language) of Deep Forest to the African centric rhythm and beats of Comparsa. In Music Detected, there is an Asian quality to some of the tracks, and especially the vocals.

This album is a romp through music styles with dance beats commingling with classical lyric construction. It is joyful, melancholy, teeming with the energy that Deep Forest has always been able to capture in their music. The songs might be dissimilar to their previous offering in their use of heavy beats and English lyrics, but they still convey the same power and authenticity of their older albums.

Stand out tracks include:

Soul Elevator
Computer Machine
Beauty In Your Eyes
Will You Be Ready

A fun, interesting, and surprisingly danceable album, MUSIC DETECTED makes me hungry for a new Deep Forest album to settle in to. Perhaps soon.
