I've seen some poor reviews for this CD from IAK fans elsewhere, which has puzzled me a little, because I find this their most enjoyable album to date. It is certainly theor most accessible as it is ver rich melodically, the songs easy to like at a first hearing bit with enough depth for you to not tire of them with repeated playing.

Someone here has commented on the production as being poor...I don't agree. The album has a live sound - all of the songs could, if necessary, be easily played on unaccompanied acoustic guitar and still be very enjoyable but, for the band, Bramwell himself plays an electric guitar, stylisticallly often like an acostic one, and the band's arrangements are very simple, never displacing the guitar from centre stage. Particulalrly effective are the keyboards and synths, unobtrusive but tellingly effective.

So, rich in melody, less rhythmic and angry than their last "Gods and Monsters", "Play Moulah Rouge" is a return to the style of, say, the "I Am Kloot" album - but is more mature, more confident - it's better!

I bought this from the record company direct two months ago, only now has it gone on general sale and I think it may now finally be the the time that IAK break out from being a band with a definitive know all the words to all the songs cult following into the mainstream.

John Bramwell's songwriting is certainly upto the same standard as their previous work, the divine "down at the front" and "only role in town" are on par with the best of their defining self-titled album of 2003's highlights "same deep water as me", "mermaids" and "proof". The lyrical quirkiness is still there, as well as the romantic sentiments and all the rest.

IAK are certainly a band who people fall in love with very quickly, and want to go and tell all your friends about, and certainly I am preaching to the converted mostly on this page as the people buying this will already own the other three albums, and the John Peel sessions, and the stand alone single etc.

The question is, do you want to preach to the masses? or doyou want to keep them your own personal brilliant little secret?

Strong tunes, a typical characteristic of early I Am Kloot albums, were frustratingly in short supply on the band's last album "Gods and Monsters", so it's a welcome relief that "Play Moolah Rouge" is more in keeping with this great little bands first two records.

With an expanded line-up (this 3 piece is now bolstered to 5), "Play Moolah Rouge" has a rough captured-live-in-the-studio feel, which is a result of being recorded and mixed in a matter of days. It's an approach that suits the band perfectly. John Bramwell's vocals have a particularly unpolished rasp that enhances the more maudlin and introspective songs on this record ("Down at the Front", "Only Role In Town") very well.

The other most obvious stength to this album is that it's well crafted; with obvious thought being given to structure and sequencing, and aside from one clanger on the album ("Hey Little Bird", which marries a pretty melody to some uncommonly trite lyrics) it's another strong set from the band.

Finally, the accompanying DVD with the special edition is worth seeking out, as it mixes great live footage of the band playing songs from the album alongside an entertaining interview with Bramwell.

These guys should be playing stadiums but very selfishly pleased they aren't, seen them twice this year at Cambridge and Norwich and going to Manchester in December. This is brilliant as are "sky at night" and "let it all in"
