E by gum these are good... Veteran editor and groove doyen Mark E returns to his Merc controls, having previously passed the keys to fellow soul marksman MK VII earlier this year. As always, it's a lengthy, hypnotic affair on both sides. "Train Tunnel" loops and overlaps over itself with woozy jazz horns that gradually build in prominence and overwhelming strength while "Give It Time" swoons away on a palette of sweet vocal harmonies and subtle disco string work. The E stands for excellent.
