Ordinary Man , 5/10

This week's "next big thing" from Bristol's trip-hop scene is the Day One, the duo of Phelim Byrne and Donnie Hardwidge, whose Ordinary Man (Astralwerks, 1999) was briefly a sensation. Unfortunately, their fusion of hip-hop, pop, jazz and rock, even in the standout tracks Waiting for a Break, In Your Life, Trying Too Hard Bedroom Dancing and Ordinary Man (virtually a copy of Elton John's Your Song), sounds terribly predictable, cliched, monotonous, dated. (Translation by/ Tradotto da Dario Ferraro)

La "Next big thing" della settimana viene dalla scena trip-hop di Bristol e sono i Day One, un duo composto da Phelim Byrne e Donnie Hardwidge: il loro Ordinary Man (Astralwerks, 1999) ha generato un breve scalpore. Sfortunatamente , la loro fusione di hip-hop, pop, jazz and rock, che troviamo nelle tracce Waiting for a Break, In Your Life, Trying Too HardBedroom Dancing and Ordinary Man (virtualmente una copia di Your Song di Elton John) suona terribilmente prevedibile, noiosa e legata a cliche' datati.
