The most impressive thing is that it took them more than to decades to find out that there's no secret in letting go, it's a decision that should be made and, like in this case, it's not made.
Lamb's first album in five years is classy and polished, perfect background music for fancy cafes. Remarkably, they could keep their sound fresh and updated through the years, but the songwriting is sometimes lacking here. Most songs end up being soulless, missing that "something" that could make them remarkable. Still, a pleasant bunch of songs and actually one of my most played albums while working or "doing other stuff".
It's a decent electronic record, Lamb is kind of a unique band/duo, Rhodes' voice and Barlow's production really complement each other. Here half of the tracks are good, the other half is, at best, decent. You have good tracks like Bulletproof and Armageddon Waits (which could easily be a James Bond theme), or Moonshine and Phosphorous (which has a sweet melody and is lowkey an awesome song). On the other hand, most of the tracks in the 2nd half are boring piano/strings ballads that don't grow ... read more
