The Cat Empire - Cinema -2010-
(Reggae, Rock, Jazz, Latin)

From: Melbourne

The Cat Empire's message, on stage and in the studio, has always been about breaking down borders: musical, geographic, lingual. But they have never done it so powerfully as they do on their new album, Cinema. The album serves up a set of tunes which truly captures the melting pot of influences and sounds that The Cat Empire bring to the table and the sheer joy of their live performances, delivered in a format perfect for lounge-rooms, backyard BBQ’s, cafes, road trips and parties all over the world. Cinema, the band's fourth studio album, is a dazzling statement of a band at a peak of its powers, music designed to move the body and the mind. Right from the opening track, this is music that leaps from the speakers. Cinema has been on constant rotation and I can't get enough. Each track is phenomenal and brings something new with each listen. Easily one of the best albums of the year from one of the best BANDS on the planet. Careful though, this is some seriously addicting music. Enjoy!
