How about this for a change of direction, or is it? Mount Kimbie follow up their hugely enjoyable debut `Crooks and Lovers' with a somewhat different second album in `Cold Spring Fault Less Youth'. If you've listened to `Crooks and Lovers', Mount Kimbie's new album may take a few listens before your ears make sense of it all.

`Cold Spring Fault Less Youth' has a loose and spacious feel to it, the opening `Home Recording' won't ever leave you breathless but its a solid though underwhelming opener. `You Took Your Time' brings forth the urban rhymes of King Krule, his lazily vocalised drawls need a bit of time to get used to, but it soon changes into more of an angry growl. Its one of those tracks that works but doesnt at the same time, something appears to be missing but you can't quite work it out so you continually replay it until you think it makes sense.

`Cold Spring Fault Less Youth' balances elegantly between the lows and high but never over-reaches on either side, though sometimes I wished this restraint was tested more. `Made To Stray' is one of the key tracks on this album, beginning with a a slow-burning stomp and a progressive skittering drum arrangement and reverb, carefully drawn deep synths, trumpets, organ, bass and some vocals finish off a fine track. But even this track felt like it still needed an extra layer of euphoria, and i'm not sure the vocals were necessary. `Sullen Ground' is another success, its the closest track to the sound which made Mount Kimbie famous. A brooding dancefloor-disorientated flash of static and washed out house beats, woozy vocals drift in and out whilst the seamless groove locks you in. `So Many Times, So Many Ways', `Lie Near', `Slow' and `Fall Out' sit snugly within the album but didn't really stimulate you.

I'm writing this to offer a different opinion to the current highest review and I do it with respect because I believe music to be highly subjective.

To me, this album is amazing. It's more down tempo than the last and perhaps less experimental but perfect in its own right. Throughout the album, there feels to be a real progressive link that pushes me on to the end each time I listen to it. The July weather is meant to be accompanied by these kinds of sounds.

If you bought any of the recent incredible left of center albums and were thinking about skipping over this then please reconsider. Wait until the evening, get this album on and go for a walk.

This is the second album to be released by London-based outfit Mount Kimbie. 'Crooks and Lovers', their debut album, was a very unique album with an upbeat and eclectic array of post-dubstep offerings. Bounces, bleeps and clicks with well selected vocal samples, all swirled together in a very original way made that album a huge success. The follow up, 'Cold Spring Fault Less Youth' builds on this sound but takes a largely more vocal turn. Two tracks feature underground songwriter and artist King Krule. If you've not heard him before, as I hadn't prior to listening to this album, his vocals certainly take some getting used to. That's not to say he's bad, just that, like this album as a whole, it'll take a few listens to really get it. But once you do, you'll be hooked.

Stand out tracks? The excellent 'Made to Stray' is the tune of the album for me. It builds and builds and then drops into a catchy vocal finale. Almost it's equal, the superb 'Break Well' is structured in a similar way, building up the intensity before dropping swiftly into a lush array of beats and melodies, leaving the vocals until deep into the track.

Overall, I think this album is a great continuation of what Mount Kimbie began in 'Crooks and Lovers'. Looking forward to more to come!

This album really isn't special like their first. Much less innovative with the beats and synths, going into more grid-like music. The vocals aren't a welcome addition either in my opinion, hiding the subtle brilliance that Mount Kimbie usually create.
