Biography

In any relationship, difference is the dynamic that makes magic happen. In musical partnerships, it’s often the crucial friction that makes creative sparks fly but, a fraction too much friction, and everything’s likely to go up in smoke.

Lou Rhodes and Andy Barlow understand difference more than most. They’re the first to admit that when they got together their ... Read more in Amazon's lamb Store

Best Kept Secrets is a collection of the finer points from Lamb's career to date--an even smattering from their four albums--their self-titled debut, Fear of Fours, What Sound and 2003's Between Darkness & Wonder. Although geographically miles away, Lamb were an integral part of the Bristol sound with their music sitting somewhere between Portishead and Roni Size. "Cottonwool" opens the anthology, and rightly so--the brooding double bass, ethereal vocal and broken beats are a perfect intro to what they're all about.

Best Kept Secrets is in chronological order and highlights the slight changes in direction that occurred in each period. Tunes such as "B-line" and "Bonfire" are more rhythmic than their fractal predecessors yet dirty in comparison to the smooth, almost soulful "Stronger" and "Please" from their latter years. Although the album gets comfier and more worthy of the "chillout" tag as it progresses, it's clear that two things remain consistent throughout: Rhodes' vocals remain beautiful and Barlow's production always does enough to keep it left of centre. --David Trueman

The first time I heard Lamb, was a couple of months ago when a friend of mine played me Gorecki (beautiful song!) I was so impressed with the song I ordered 'Best Kept Secrets' and it is the best purchase I've made in years. If you like the kind of alternative music, e.g. Massive Attack,Portishead etc then this album is for you. There's tracks that are slow, and a different kind of romantic. Then there's tracks that are a bit drum and base-like. There is everything on this album, it makes me cry, it makes me happy. This CD is the one I want played at my wedding, also my funeral. Not only are the songs themselves so amazing, but the lyrics are so simple yet beautiful you can't help but relate to most of the tracks. This album is more than amazing, I can't think of a word to best describe it...Buy it and see for yourself. I apologise now if its not your thing, but in my opinion its a beautiful, exciting album that makes you want to put it on repeat over and over again...

Lamb really are in a class of their own, and they prove it with this fantastic album, taking you on an emotional journey from the dizzying rythmic vibes their first 2 'head albums', through the the heart wrenching vocals of their last 2 'heart albums'. This really is a must for your music collection. The DVD videos are superb, again showing Lamb's emotional transition.

well what to say about this cd?

when i first got this cd i had only heard the song angelica before which i absolutely loved so much it made me buy the greatest hits.

when i first bought this album it took some listening to to get used to, but my god now it is one of my favourite cds, i can listen to this cd again and again. all the songs are so different in pace and melody, some songs been just in a state of pure idilic ecstacy while others have eclectic beats to rock youre socks off mostly having the very haunting vocals of the female singer, and ill tell you now her vocals are soomething else, very nice to listen to.

so without further ado get this cd!!! if you havent heard much of lamb before then this is the perfect starting point. this will make you want to buy everything lamb, but if you like this dont buy the remix cd (a few songs are good on it but not many)

Saw this band at a festival in 2009 and they really stood out. Made a note that here was a band not just to download a couple of tracks, but to do it properly and get at least one CD. Couldn't beleive I'd not heard of them before. Every time I listen it's like I'm discovering something new, yet I'm transported back to a warm, relaxed summer festival evening. Great variety in their music so very hard to put into a genre. All too easy to compare to the likes of Portishead. Sure there are some similarities, but Lamb are FAR better. (Vocally think a little bit of Everything but the Girl). Gabriel is probably my favourite track but the whole album is completely absorbing. Go on - try it!!
