The Richest Man In Babylon

The Richest Man In Babylon by Thievery Corporation
Released: Oct 2002
Label: ESL Music, Inc.
Newcomers to the sophisticated and elegantly languid Thievery sound should start with "The Outernationalist" on this 2002 release. A delicious combination of slack trip-hop beats, dub echoes, street sounds and "world" atmospherics, it typifies their upmarket take on the downtempo scene. Babylon, their third album, maintains this atmosphere throughout, blending acid jazz, Indian and Brazilian song structures. Few can do this so effectively, which is why you continue to hear these songs in every chic bar across the planet.
