Album Review: 'Sleepwalking'
A less-stoned-sounding Massive Attack, Mark Rae and Steve Christian are a British DJ-production team favoring jazzy hip-hop and lush ’70s soul. On their second studio session, reggae legend Cedric Myton flexes his falsetto, Brazilian fusionista Tania Maria tries trip-hop, and L.A. prog-rappers the Pharcyde come on like it’s 1993. Best, though, is a gravelly Bobby Womack, whose tracks show U.K. club culture takes better care of American R&B vets than we do. Thanks, mates. B+
