Terribly underrated and nearly forgotten, the Heights of Abraham's Humidity is a classic trip-hop album that never really got its due. And that's a pity, since the band comprises of one half of Fila Brazillia and vocalist Jake Harries. "Still Waiting" is an absolutely gorgeous track, and, to this day, I still sing along with it when I hear it. "Sportif" is a wonderfully, bouncy mid-tempo track, while "In the Cold" takes us back to romance. "Love Flows Down" becomes an ethereal track, but "10.55" returns things to earth with a humorous spoken word riff on a small town. And the final track, "Tides," ebbs and flows like the real thing, if instead of water, you had electro. Listen to this album and keep the spirit alive. - Discogs

Stick this on at the end of a long day and you won't need to soak your feet in Radox. lnstead, let the hazy trance rhythms of "Still Waiting" and "Sunshine" smooth away your aches and pains. Sigh as the subtle funk of "Sportif" gives way to "In The Cold" and the subway vocal ambience of The Blue Nile. Embrace also their echoes of Isaac Hayes, the odd blast of Miles, Kalima, even M-People circa "How Can I Love You More". And then prepare to gulp at the kitchen sink drama of "10:55", which begins "Oldman Flattery runs down the street being chased by his wife with a carving knife..." - Melody Maker
