Yet another quality entry into the canon of this fine band. This is perhaps their most diverse sounding album to date, coupling both their love of cinematic 60s pop (I'd Be Happy, Time Tracks You Down) and their affinity with smooth 70s soul and funk (My State of Mind, Butterfly), along with some new innovations (Secret Love), although the unifying factor is the mood, which is relaxed and laid-back, without ever being tedious or humdrum. As masters of their craft (incredibly this is their 9th studio album), Andy and Corinne's retro leanings are clear, but there's a sincerity in their re-creation of their influences that is much more credible than with many of their peers, and their music never comes across as a pastiche, but as an identifiable and vibrant entity in its own right - a melting pot of pure pop, Northern Soul, light jazz, funk and lush "easy listening". Best tracks are the sensual My State of Mind and the upbeat and subtle Something Every Day, but all the tracks (even the instrumental "interlude" Butterfly Lullaby) are worth a listen. Contrary to another reviewer's comments, I'd say this album offers a perfect introduction to novices of the Swing Out Sister sound. Whilst it seems they may never recapture the juggernaut commercial success of Breakout, perhaps that's a good thing: this is band that marches to the beat of its own drum and has become something pretty unique in today's music soundscape - I for one am grateful that after over 20 years, they're still able to produce such high calibre music as this.
