The music of Hidden Cameras evokes sweeping dream-like landscapes both pastoral and urban. Each track has it's own imagery - from the epic (Ratify the New), to the whimsical (In the NA)to the intimate (Colour Of A Man). Lyrically, there seems to be a pathos towards anyone who is or has been a social outcast - culminating with the song "Silence Can Be A Headline." The production values feature dense layered vocals coupled with rich instrumentation. Hidden cameras seems to draw inspiration from classic post-punk groups like Joy Division and Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark. This is a fantastic album that served as my introduction to the band. They are everything I look for in the groups I've filed as "Indispensable Albums" to be carted out of the house in the event of fire, flood or famine.
