Reverence is the debut studio album by British electronica band Faithless, released in April 1996 via Cheeky Records.

About the Band:

Faithless are a British electronica band consisting of Maxi Jazz, Sister Bliss and Rollo (Armstrong).

The band was formed in early 1995, and their debut single "Salva Mea (Save Me)" was released in July that year.  Jazz acted as a vocalist, whilst Bliss constructed most of the music herself electronically, but also played the piano, violin, saxophone and bass guitar.  Rollo heads and produces the band.  Lead female vocals for many of their songs are performed by Pauline Taylor, who also performed lead vocals for singles by Rollo released under his monikers Rollo Goes Mystic and Rollo Goes Spiritual.

About the Album:

The album contains several singles that have subsequently become Faithless classics, such as "Don't Leave", "Salva Mea", and "Insomnia".

The album was produced and mixed by Rollo and Sister Bliss.  The album aslo features Dido on vocals (Dido is Rollo's sister).

The album reached #26 in the UK charts.

This album is a collection of shadows, of mirror images, where songs mimic one another before spinning off to do their own thing. 

As Jazz explored hip-hop through the 1980s and his path converged with dub superstar Jah Wobble, the ultra funky Jamiroquai, and the Soul II Soul amalgamation (among others), the foundation was laid for the delicious blend of genres and sounds that would break through in the mid-'90s.

Maxi Jazz, the maestro behind Faithless, is well titled as "the grand oral disseminator." The tales he spins make this album a manifesto, religious experience, sexual escapade, and 24-hour rave all rolled up into one tightly constructed package.

The songs are great, the beats are compelling, and it's almost impossible to not bounce around the room while listening.

This album is also a collection of shadows, of mirror images, where songs mimic one another before spinning off to do their own thing. Moments are caught and lost, tangled, and straightened out.

Really, it's brilliant!
