Andy Caldwell's first full-length, UNIVERSAL TRUTH, certainly starts off with a bang: grinding rock guitars and a house beat of "Runaway" promise an exciting time ahead. Sadly, though, the album quickly shifts into good, if uninspiring, mid-tempo house. The electro grooves on "Warrior" help it stick out among the pack, but much of the rest of the album passes by without leaving much of a mark. The sad thing is that Andy Caldwell had a proven basis in "Be Free" for expanding his musical horizons while bolstering his macho credentials, but he chose to sideline it. What's more, Progressive House is itself badly in need of fresh ideas: having flirted in the past decade with Tribal, Breakbeat, Acid, Electro, and mainstream Rock, there really can't be much downside in taking the cue from the work of Behrouz & Andy and seeing where that leads.
And it was worth every minute, because Universal Truth has been crafted to near perfection. Don't You Love Me," the set's first single, is already making a splash with its old-school meets the new sound, its funky bassline, slamming beats, and Amma's strong vocals sure to stir to action even the most wilting dancer.
