Format: Audio CD
"Electronic music - Repetetive? Boring?" With a clutch of high-flying singles
already under their belts Cambridge collective Clean Bandit throw down the
gauntlet in the opening bars of the first number , 'Mozart's House', of their
stunning debut album 'New Eyes' to demonstrate, unequivocally, that there
will be nothing remotely repetetive or boring going on in this musical journey.

What a fine ensemble they are; mashing up top notch melodies, crisp and highly
addictive dance beats, scintillating string decorations and pristine vocals from a
stable of hugely gifted singers and collaborators. It's a heady and winning mix.

You'll probably already know and have danced your socks off to 'Rather Be' with
its marvellously soulful vocal from Jess Glynne and the exquisite 'Extraordinary'
courtesy of the wonderful Sharna Bass but dig deeper and there are further treats
in store in the shape of the charming robotic duet 'Dust Clears' (featuring Noonie
Bao); the cheeky staccato entanglements of 'Cologne' (with Javeon and Nikki Cislyn)
and (a highlight for me) the sublimely haunting composition 'Birch', which, with its
beautiful vocal turn from Eliza Shaddad brings a deeper, darker set of sonic colours to
the table. All-in-all there is nothing not to love in this supremely confident collection.

It's gone straight onto my Summer playlist. I doubt I will hear many better albums this year.

Highly Recommended.

This is going to be a different sort of review as I am not really going to review the songs on this album. If you are considering buying this album on vinyl, you have probably, like me, already decided you like it.

Instead I am looking at the presentation and contents and sound of the vinyl edition. I'll also mention delivery and packaging.

The first thing you will notice is how heavy the album is! It is supplied on two heavyweight vinyl disks, and in a very heavy and really rather gorgeous double album sleeve.

The printing on the sleeve is top quality and is finished in a high gloss photo paper finish.

Opening the sleeve and you are presented with all the tracks and their lyrics - it just feels so well presented.

Inside each side of the sleeves is a photo-quality print of the band that you could easily frame and hang on your wall.

The inner sleeves are again heavyweight card finished in a plain white semi-gloss.

The actual records are shiny and heavy and so incredibly tactile compared to a CD.

Each side of each record has a different geometric shape in the centre and its side letter, A, B, C or D. The individual tracks are not listed on the label and are only shown on the sleeve.

Along with the records, you are also supplied with a code to download an MP3 version of the album and a few bonus tracks directly from Warner Records. These are 320kbps MP3s with each track being about 10MB.

The sound quality of the record I found is a little variable and I actually returned the first copy I was sent as it had a clear pressing fault on side D that caused a heavy click for the first two minutes of the record and it also had a lot of hisses and pops on side A.

If you are like me and have always liked the sound of classical instruments but have never really been into the music this is the album for you. Add to that the use of electronics, a really good helping of dance rhythms and a dash of rap (which in my view goes a very long way) and you have a real winner. There is not a dud track on the album with the possible exception of Outro Movement lll which did not really do it for me, but in 'Rather be' you have a track which is worth the album price on it's own.

AMAZING, everyone should buy this, you even get all their videos (which are self directed and really good) - yes they are also on youtube but it is nice to have them on DVD? Tiny bit annoyed as like the week after this the new deluxe-deluxe (or something-can't remember what it was called) album version was announced which had all the recordings from when they did a session with Zane Lowe with the BBC philharmonic (which are also really good) so I had to download that as well...

After loving Rather Be and having no issues hearing it on the radio all the time, I anticipated this album greatly and went into it blind - I admit I was a little disappointed by how few tracks were of a similar nature to "Rather Be". Considering the unique appeal of strings and dance music, it felt like the group's gimmick was a bit underutilised in order to avoid straying too far from the kind of mainstream stuff you hear on the radio. Only "Extraordinary", "Dust Clears" and "Up Again" felt like they matched the greatness of Rather Be for me, while the rest of the album felt like pretty typical dance stuff with the strings occasionally poking their head through the door to say hi rather than being a major part of the music's identity. In fact, on a couple of tracks, unless my ears have failed me, the strings were completely absent (including, bizarrely enough, the titular track "New Eyes" itself).

That's not to say these more typical tracks are bad by any means, in fact there's only one or two songs I genuinely found boring, but overall I was just a little let down that most songs just had the strings playing very short melodies over and over again at particular points, in style with the dance genre, rather than being allowed to flow freely with unique melodies over the top of the more repetitive electronic elements.

Overall still a great album, just a shame that only a couple of tracks are on par with "Rather Be" in terms of uniqueness.
