...1 Giant Leap represents a genuinely ground-breaking
audio-visual project of global dimensions.
--The Daily Telegraph
My tip for the Mercury Music Prize
--Blues and Soul
A brilliant album...I love it. I listen to it a lot
--Dido. The Cut. Channel 4
I was proud to be asked to contribute my very small part to what I think is going to be one of the greatest records this year - and the most profound.
Listen and weep. It`s a masterpiece. No joke.
--Davina McCall. Heat Magazine
1GL is more than a fab record (which it is) and more than a thought-provoking film (which it is). It is-and no apologies here to those of you with sensitive bull detectors-a manifesto for a better world. And you can dance to it.
could easily become one of the year's slow-burn successes
it is dazzling
inspired and uplifting
--Uncut. 4 stars
Pop CD of the Week
-- The Observer
...a very superior ambient/chill-out album
an album that provokes thought, that pushes boundaries and that sounds ace
...a truly astonishing project from former Faithless man Jamie Catto called 1 Giant Leap, an album/DVD recorded on a six-month trip around the world, which includes musical and spoken-word contributions from Michael Stipe, Kurt Vonnegut, Dennis Hopper, Brian Eno, Baaba Maal, Tom Robbins and Arrested Development among others
...the potential is exceptional...File under Experimental but extremely percussive groove
...a global fusion of African drumming, spoken word, rap and techno...the result is damn good fun.
...a musically and visually epic DVD that is crammed with cultural significance
...from what I have seen of this inspiring project, both the films and the music are of such high quality that it deserves every success.
