Skye is back with the Godfreys after several years of separation. The result is "Blood like Lemonade:" accomplished, enjoyable, full of essential Morcheeba character; chilled-out music for any occasion, ideal for the early hours or a lazy summer afternoon.
BLL lacks the experimental curiosities which characterised the excellent "Dive Deep" with its eclectic mix of vocalists. However, this new album is a more even, unified listening experience and a further reminder of just how well Skye's soulful melodic voice compliments the Godfreys' quirky creative compositions to produce the quintessential Morcheeba sound. Two tracks are instrumental, the remaining eight carry Skye's vocals.
If you're already a Morcheeba fan, you'll probably like this collection. The tracks (compared to DD) flow effortlessly though the album which contains few surprises but is really good and returns to the core of what this great Brit-pop trio does best. It seems Blood is not only thicker than water, but thicker than lemonade too.
