Released: 27th November 2006.
After their Greatest Hits album, rumours of Faithless calling it a day were not to be avoided. However, after Maxi Jazz's short fling with Tiësto on "Dance 4 Life", Rollo, Maxi and Sister Bliss now release their fifth studio album, "To All New Arrivals".
Fortunately, this time they have put more emphasis on guest vocals rather than just focusing on Maxi's voice - which means we can also hear Cassandra 'Cass' Fox (the voice of Rui Da Silva's "Touch Me") on the forthcoming single "Music Matters", the Cure's Robert Smith (on "Spiders, Crocodiles & Kryptonite") and of course the inevitable Dido (on the beautiful "Last This Day"), to name the bigger names.
However, Faithless are kind enough to also give newer talent a chance, meaning we can hear guest artists with exotic names like Cat Power and One Eskimo. Newcomer Harry Collier provides the soothing vocals on the album's title track, as well as on the brilliant lead single "Bombs".
As with all Faithless albums, it takes a few listens to get bought into it, and the themes are still often political - but in the end, you'll still find yourself playing it over and over again.
