Most people have no idea who Roisin Murphy is, and can barely even remember the legendary Moloko. It is frustrating then, that so many people still don't know of what could be one of their favourite albums. I was so thrilled when this album was out, that I'd get to hear more of her wonderful voice. Since the day I bought this via amazon, it has CHANGED MY LIFE.
Everytime I listen to this album it gets better and better. It is so unique and brilliantly different. An inspired return and new beginning, excellent production by Matthew Herbert, the album is perfect.
This kicks off with the sensational "Leaving the city", fast and jaw-dropping, yet it has no beat. There are no reminders of any old moloko material here, its all fresh and original, Roisin's divine voice sings over this unique glossy electronica. "Sinking Feeling" is as addictive as drugs. "Through time" puts me in a trance and an emotional rollercoaster, so good its unreal.
Not enough words can do justice to this album, each time I listen to this album I get taken on an incredible journey, which feels so good everytime. "Off on it" may take a short while to click, but apart from that the album will definitley leave you satisfied. Most songs are upbeat, melodic, dancey, catchy and delicious.
The pace is slowed down excitingly with the beautiful "Closing of the doors". I will never grow tired of this album, and will enjoy it more each time I hear it. Roisin Murphy and Matthew Herbert have been heroic with making such an amazing album, and it is a classic. Now in my top 3 favourite albums- ever!!!!
Immense pleasure everytime.
