Archive - Londinium mp3 album

Energy from every pore Make what you will Are you with or without? The force cannot be blamed Just the hunger or greed Supplying the ugly drive Dirty water no profit to supply That round traveled far too long. Londinium" lyrics provided for educational purposes and personal use only.

1996, Londinium was the debut album by London-based trip-hop band Archive. The title is taken from the Roman name for London. Roya Arab is the principal vocalist throughout the album, and Rosko John provides rapping. I Love You" by Underworld. Skyscraper" uses a sample from "Mmm Skyscrape. Love You" by Underworld.

Archive are a musical group based in London, England, whose music spans electronic, trip hop, avant-garde, post-rock and progressive rock. Over their twenty-five-year history, the band has released ten studio albums and enjoyed established success throughout Europe, while remaining little-known in their native Britain. Archive was formed in 1994 as a trip-hop band when Darius Keeler and Danny Griffiths formed up with Roya Arab and rapper Rosko John.

The debut album from the rather mysterious (though major-label-backed) project Archive, Londinium sounds like R&B on Prozac: trip-hop with evocative, gauzy synth textures (some from soul samples) girded by simplistic yet effective downbeat techno. There's either a sweet-voiced female or an abstract rapper (sometimes both) on almost every cut, and plenty of organic instruments added to the mix as well; lending a hand with the guitar work on four tracks is Underworld's Rick Smith.

Reviews about Archive - Londinium (10):
I picked up this album on wax for £40 last year- still stands the time as one of my fave trip hop albums ever conceived. I originally heard 2 of the tracks ("Londinium" and "so few words") on a VHS to promote the Playstation's first few games of '96 and was hooked from the word go. its a shame that asking price is really high, as it is a wonderful piece of art. like many trip hop bands of that era line up changes meant the band would go into a different direction musically but this remains a great piece of art for its time.
please, plesae, please re-press this (and the other early-period albums).
totally reasonable price i must say! i love my records when they're more expensive than my turntable.
It's been out of print for over 20 years without a repress or reissue.... Yeah, it's going to be expensive. That's what happens when it sees no other vinyl release.Also, I'd suggest buying a nicer turntable and cartridge to play your records on then... :-p
Anybody have the track "parvaneh (butterfly) that's duplicate on her copy ? at the end of the side C and at the beginning of the side D
Like tarwater3, I don't have that duplication.Side C ends with "Parvaneh (Butterfly)" and side D opens with "Beautiful World".Moreover, side D ends with the "Untitled song" of the CD album, before a silence, and I have a little back sticker "Promo only not for sale" (which is on the label of side A photo).I haven't the blue front sticker 'Limited edition advance release'.
Thank you for your answer, i'm not alone now !
Thanks a lot ! I have the blue sticker on my copy too...
I don't have that, side C ends with "Parvaneh (Butterfly)" and side D opens with "Beautiful World", I own the version with the sticker 'Limited edition advance release' , if that helps :-)
Yes I have this. For the version with Parvaneh (Butterfly) duplicated on side D, the matrix/runout on side D is: "ARKLP 1001 D-1". On side C, the marking is "ARKLP 1001- C 2-" (although it's very close to being either "C 2-" or "C C-", as the engraving is poor).
