Occupying space somewhere between the metronomic underground of Stereolab and Portishead's cinematic ambience, Broadcast's long-awaited first 'proper' LP is a delight. Its songs are characterised by an eerie, Joe Meek-ian production (Echo's Answer, Papercuts) and '60s-pop approach (Come On Let's Go) that never sounds contrived or strained. Indeed, despite their evident influences, The Noise... is an LP that, in the year 2000, succeeds brilliantly in sounding quite like nothing else.

Truly, a joy.

Not trying to sound passe or anything as i'm sure that by now you're already informed on the general consensus but i will be honest to say that this CD put quite simply contains my all time favourite song - Until Then - for me it is a song that knocked Wandering Star (Portishead - also awesome) out of the park i've listened to the song and the album so many times that it has worn and certain tracks won't play. I implore all fans of music to purchase this CD quite simply it is a masterclass in emotive lyrics juxtaposing a soft industrial sound.
Ultimately at this price it is nearly the definition of value for money. As an album it may not be perfect, but, it raises the standard to which others must compete. Finally for an atmospheric, unique and altogether enjoyable auditory experience The Noise Made By People can't fail to deliver.

After a album compilation, Work & Non Work, released on Warp two and a half years ago, and a long silence, Broadcast and their china shop are back with their first proper album. The Noise Made By People sees Broadcast carrying on their exploration of sounds and atmospheres. Not that far apart from the likes of Stereolab, the songs are sometimes quite challenging, and the band defies classification. Not completely art pop nor mainstream, too "live" to be electronic, Trish 'n' co explore new territories, experiment without being pretentious. Unlike Stereolab, Broadcast benefit from a generally more simple approach to their art! What probably strikes the most is the unity of sound throughout the record. The whole thing, put together like a Jenga tower, threatens to collapse at any time, but resists well. The influences, from Morricone and Barry to the electronic weirdness of some of their label mates are clear, but don't over shadow the talent of the band members. Instead, they weave their delicate web slowly, with precision and dignity. Every note has its purpose, every word its duty. Broadcast are economical with everything, avoid padding and fluff and go straight to the point. Music is an art, not a business, and they prove, on every single track, that it is possible to entertain without compromising, to educate without being boring. It takes some time to discover the beauty hidden inside, but like true love, Broadcast must be deserved. And what you get in return is worth the effort.

Around the release of this album, Broadcast were keen to demystify the process of music-making, describing it as mathematics, and just a matter of chords. Despite this scientific approach to an 'art' form popularly perceived as organic and untutored, Broadcast don't half work some magic within the equations.
Their careful grasp of song structure means that every song is a near-perfect mix of haunting melodic pop and the experimentalism for which Warp records are better known. Lazy comparisons have been made with Stereolab, but the faintly jazzy, saturated film-soundtrack pop Broadcast make is largely unique. Particular standouts are 'Unchanging Window', where Trish Keenan's dispassionate vocals suit the detached yet oddly human atmosphere of the music perfectly, and the magnificent 'Look Outside', a three-and-a-half minute epic where not a note is out of place.
The best thing about perfectionism is that, now and again, its results are perfect. 'The Noise Made By People' is such an occurrence, and constitutes a compulsory purchase.

I'd better get the superlatives out the way to begin with. This album is suberb, highly-recommended and a must-buy. It's hard for me to see why anyone would not like such beautiful music.

Broadcast have a very distinct sound. It is electronic and vaguely 60s-ish. One inspiration is 1960s American psychedelic music (think Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit"). Another is the haunting film soundtracks of that era (think "The Ipcress File" or "Get Carter"). There is also a classic sci-fi quality, especially on this album. It's the kind of eerie, spaced-out music which, if accompanying a movie, would be titled: "The space-travellers venture out onto the alien planet".

Added to this interesting mix there is one crucial, magic ingredient. That is the beautifully pure voice of Trish Keenan, Broadcast's vocalist. She sings slowly and deliberately, with enchanting effect.

Tragically Trish Keenan died in January, after suddenly contracting swine flu while on a tour of Australia. The world has lost an incredible musical talent. I would not be surprised if, 10 or 20 years from now, Broadcast will be venerated as one of the great, groundbreaking acts of the early 21st Century. They certainly were.
