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

Product Description

Product Description

180 gram audiophile vinyl / Insert with exclusive liner notes written by Lou Rhodes / Includes 3 bonus tracks

About the Artist

Although getting their start in Manchester, Lamb are more commonly associated with the Bristol-based Trip Hop sound that was popular during the 1990s. Their musical style is a distinctive mixture of Jazz, Dub, Breaks and Drum & Bass, with a strong vocal element and, in their later works especially, some acoustic influences. Consisting of producer Andy Barlow, and singer-songwriter Lou Rhodes, they achieved commercial success with two hit singles 'Górecki' and 'Gabriel' , the first one being included on their eponymous debut album (1996). The Music On Vinyl reissue features an insert with exclusive liner notes written by Lou Rhodes, giving a unique inside perspective on the production of the album. Apart from the 'Cotton Wool Fila Brazilia Mix', also included are 2 exclusive bonus tracks that have not been issued on vinyl before. A remix of 'Trans Fatty Acid' by acclaimed producing duo Kruder & Dorfmeister, and the 'Górecki (Global Communication Mix)' are featured on the D-side on the LP vinyl set

5.0 out of 5 stars A new twist on the trip-hop theme 20 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Just when it seemed that trip-hop had settled down, Lamb came along and changed everything. The Massive Attack/Portishead sound had fixed this genre firmly in its place; or so we thought. From the opening vibrophone pulses of 'lusty', to the thundering d&b crashes and angry guitar on 'cottonwool', to the inspired, haunting cello on 'zero', this truly is one hell of an album. A brilliant mix of everything meaninfull and lush in today's music. Drum&Bass has been saved from turning into Trance, and has found a new purpose; providing backdrops to haunting, winty vocals. An excellent album!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Impeccable Debut 29 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you've never heard of the UK-based band LAMB before, you've missed out on what is possibly one of the most unusual and most contradictory band formats in recent history: Louise Rhodes, a zen-influenced vocalist with a jazz/folk background, opposite Andy Barlow, a Drum'n'bass-influenced DJ also known as 'The Hipoptimist'. Their wildly conflicting personal preferences in style are nowhere more apparent than here in their first album. Inluding influences from Henryk Gorecki's "Symphony of Sorrowful Songs", and from personal experience (Zero describes Lou's reaction to miscarriage), their style is sufficiently distinctive for many die-hard fans to be hard-pressed to give them a succinct description - although the moniker Trip-Hop, linking them to Kosheen and Portishead etc., is the one most most often used; other parallels might include Sugizo and Iona. Undoubtedly the best track on the album is "Gorecki", an intensely passionate ballad whose lyrics were used as part of Nicole Kidman's 'If I Should Die' poem towards the end of "Moulin Rouge". An essential for any fan of music that expands boundaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can CD's wear out? 30 Jun 2000
Format:Audio CD
If so I'll need a new copy soon. It hasn't been off my playlist for the year I've owned it.
I just love Louise Rhodes voice. So unique. Add in the mix of drum 'n' bass and melancholy grooves and hey presto my album of all time.
Depending on how your love life is going, Gorecki has to be the happiest song ever written or the ultimate tear jerker. I've experienced both sides of the coin.
Just buy it, along with follow up Fear of Fours. If you regret it you're tone deaf.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll thank me for making you buy this album! 25 Feb 2003
By ShaneD
Format:Audio CD
Few enough record collections are graced with this mid 90s masterpiece and that's a great pity. Lamb are the nexus where jazz, classical and Drum'n'bass meet. This is their debut and there isn't another album quite like it. From the poignant and innovative cello on Zero to the seemingly orchestral sweep of the Gorecki this album will wrench you away from banality and force you to listen in childlike wonder. The collage of sounds drummed up (pardon the pun) by producer Andy Barlow is stunning, pure genius in places. Combine that with the rich, sexy and painfully earnest voice of Louise Rhodes and you're in sonic heaven. Intimate music created by music lovers for music lovers. This is the kind of record you'll bore your friends to tears talking about. Don't worry, however, as they'll return the favour just like mine did.
This band deserves your attention and this album is priceless.
Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars "I cried tears", says emotional reviewer 14 Feb 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Forget all the music genre stuff you read about jazz, trip-hop and drum-n-bass. This is a record of rare substance and beauty. A singer who must have wrung herself dry of emotion, pouring out her heart at once with power and edgy vulnerability. She combines at times with hard, harsh rhythms, at times with ambient layers, at times with minimalist acoustic hints, to create something which leaves you breathless. A voice as luscious as Liz Frasers, as acrobatic as Bjorks, but with more variety, adding its own mark of simplicity, fragility and soul. The record has some experimental flaws - once or twice Barlow's backing and production get a little to close to the selfconsciously "interesting" - but it is rich in ideas and the more endearing for it. It is a stunning debut, beautiful and inspiring. Within the first minute, the way she sings "Only you can soothe me.." to those chords will have the hair on the back of your neck on end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer listening bliss from start to end. 2 Nov 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Lamb's debut album is incrediable. A combination of daring rhythms, juxtaposed with melodies from across the musical spectrum, jazz, dance, ballad drum n' bass. Haunting vocals merge with wide vibrant strings, syncopated beats and engaging lyrics ... you're left feeling exhausted, enthralled and entirely entertained. I loved it all, from the fat vibes of "transfattyacid" to my song of the millennium Gorecki. The words, the backing, the passion, the endless nuances that this song brings just being alone ... in the dark ... and a universe that seems to grow around you ... it's one song I will never grow bored of. Sheer listening pleasure. Watch out for the hidden bonus track after "Feela", a excellent remix of track three's "cotton wool".

By Patrick Neylan VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It takes a brave man to like Lamb. Brave, stupid or maybe desperate. I don't think I'm the third, and I like Lamb.

There is something adolescent and feminine about the whole enterprise, with those humourless and pretentious lyrics from a girl's poem book and a sound almost completely lacking in testosterone. It's just so easy to sneer, unless you're trying to get off with a sensitive girl of course...
...this is not what you'd expect in a 5-star review but bear with me.

The music is a tight, jazzy, drum'n'bass groove that brings in plenty of electronica and the more unexpected cello - well, it worked for Oasis at roughly the same time. But Lamb really does get into the emotions. The haunted emptiness of Zero (a response to a miscarriage) evokes the painful emptiness of loss that is quite horrifying, to a minimalist backing of jerky strings that seem to be slashing their own wrists.

Then Gorecki, the hit, the centrepiece, the much-sampled and plundered paean to love that will pay Lou and Andy's mortgages forever. It works because Lou really believes it, and somewhere behind your faēade of worldliness and cynicism you want to believe that you too can love like that.

Put aside your Motörhead and Metallica for a moment. When she gave you Lamb, could she have had that hope for you?
