Bill Levinson

The new high water mark for electronica
This CD sets a new high water mark for its genre. It stands head and shoulders above such excellent groups as The Postal Service, Death Cab For Cutie, and Zero 7. Blending electronica, passionate vocals, and cool hypnotic rhythmic figures, this cd not only brings immediate pleasure, but has the complexity and depth to be freshly re-imagined at every listening.

Love it
I feel like a bit of a clueless goober for not finding these folks sooner. What a lovely alignment of smart song-writing, exceptional musicianship, and facile genre bending. You should have this in your library.

The latest self-titled 46bliss CD is a welcomed second effort, richly textured with volumed-up punch, an electronic funkiness, and a sense of Bowiesque "sound & vision." What I liked about the first CD from this group I like even more on this second CD. This time around we get the three piece outfit from NYC expanding with more of an ear to the ground, in touch with drum & bass, house, and electronica as newer musical trends. Overall, this CD creates an audio ambience that mixes the era of experimental, psychedelic Beatles with influences of Love & Rockets, Depeche Mode, Moby and even Human League. But there is also an unmistakeable middle eastern flavor that seems to be the band's special blend of intent right from the very start.
"In A Long Time" and "The Way You Are" capture Clare Veniot at her mysterious and sensual best with the latter tune echoing an airy and swirly sound that will get stuck in your head for hours or maybe even days. David Cooper manages to produce a multitude of edgy layered sounds from his keyboards from beginning to end. His punchy Synth-Pop style featured on "Love in Vision", recalls early Ultravox meets ELO and it doesn't miss a beat to capture the pure production Jeff Lynne would be envious of. Jack Freudenheim's driving beat and percussives maintain the hypnotic timing behind the band throughout, especially on "Yabaseo", which could be the most mesmerizing of all songs in this collection. But it's Cooper's signature tune "Three Days To Live", that captures the apocalyptic "what if" scenario perfectly. The chord arrangement is beautifully matched with Cooper's smooth impassioned vocal plea for an answer "...Three days to live, what am I gonna do..." Finally, "Inner Sensation" duets Veniot and Cooper in a song that echoes of the "Tomorrow Never Knows" dreamy allure and experimental sensibility.

A spiritual vibe flows through this trio's beautifully produced musical compositions. And the now coined phrase that's all about this vibe is better know as...46bliss.

Hypnotic bliss!
I bought this CD after being hypnotized by and falling in love with the song The Way You Are when it was used on (my favorite show) Veronica Mars. It is still my favorite song, but the rest of the CD is similarly dreamy and does not disappoint. 46bliss is now #1 in my CD rotation.

Tech meets touch in this world of angst and bliss.
I just finished listening to the collection and I can hear the alienation of progress as technology and emotion make adventurous love. (Put yourself in my place!) I was always impressed with the band's music, but I must tell you I believe 46Bliss is a solid, nuanced, intimate and powerful piece of work that I sincerely enjoy. It has a depth, sophistication and a cohesion worthy of a place on my playlist. Perhaps it's just phonetically and thematically right up my alley so-to-speak, but I was definitely drawn to the material. In A Long Time is actually not my favorite. I think Three Days To Live is frenetically awesome and so is Love In Vision. The Way You Are is deeply haunting as is Kalimba...I could go on, but I think you get the idea. Multi-layered, confident, sensuous, a milestone benchmark, fine work. I'm happy to own it.

When ghosts come back to haunt you....
Why is it, or how is it, that a song, a tune or a phrase attached to some melodic line, stays with you, haunts you and follows you, wherever you go, and no matter what you might be doing? And therefore why some and not others? I suggest it has something to do with the expression of human emotion and feeling, and the craft of good writers and musicians. Well, so it is with 46Bliss and those haunting phrases that plant themselves like a seed in this contraption of a brain I carry around on my shoulders...and like any seed, it eventually takes root, and grows and flowers. It plays itself over and over in my head, and haunts me until I have no choice but to play the CD again, if only to give my brain a rest!

I came across this band, and this CD purely by accident and if some recommendation is needed from an anonymous 'punter'like me, then this little gem has it. I guess we all secretly want to be haunted by something!
