Review by Matt Schwenke
With a calm, collected cool, Thievery Corporation has carved out a worldly niche in the electronic genre, incorporating a definitive and eclectic mix of Brazilian, dub, downtempo, lounge, and Middle Eastern sounds (amongst many others), and their set list was a celebration of their musical diversity-- pulling from all of the group's albums.
While naturally calling the listener to move to the music, Thievery Corporation ranged in intensity from meditative in "Facing East," hazily humid in "Lebanese Blonde" and near-liquid in "Omid," to percolating in "Illumination," fiery and feverish in "Warning Shots" and bombastic on "Assault on Babylon."
