It always good to do some research prior to a concert on the support act and high on expectation prior to tonights Unthanks gig in Cardiff the Gods have indeed smiled. Trembling Bells provide the opening slot, a band which the Modfather Paul Weller has championed in various interviews over recent years and whose new album "The Constant Pageant" has received an emphatic five stars from this week's Sunday Times. They describe it "as reaching new levels of excellence" and after intently listening to this for the past couple of days its hard to disagree. Led by Alex Neilson and hailing from the great city of Glasgow this is the band's third album and it is a mighty and eclectic beast. The influences are all over the place but Fairport Convention must be name checked along with West coast rockers the Jefferson Airplane and singer Lavinia Blackwall has one of the best voices heard this side of a young Grace Slick. This is no nostalgia fest however since the Trembling Bells bring a freshness and verve to their folk rock based music which transcends mere comparisons and cries out for your rapt attention.

Listen to the glorious seething opener with "Just as the rainbow" and you realise finally what Mike Scott was on about in his search for the "Big Music". It chases you around the room, offering no respite whatsoever and Blackwall's vocal is a monster. Up next is "All my favourite mistakes" which would sound equally at home on the "Treme" soundtrack as it would a "best of folk" album, although two minutes in it takes a sort of Carnaby Street inspired turn and sounds like the sort of music that blared out of a Mary Quant Boutique on a Saturday afternoon.

Fairport Convention is the oracle, and of course Steeleye Span and Pentangle and a swathe of others articulated, to varying degrees, entwined rock and folk elements in their musical voices.

Trembling Bells, a Glasgow-based band, takes the most fundamental of traditional music forms - folk - and pursues this further tradition of marrying hard-core rock with hard-core folk vocals [the glorious Lavinia Blackwall] and instrument requisites.

The rock thread is not the dominant seam, but tracks like 'All My Favourite Mistakes' and 'Otley Rock Oracle' do wear it well, the former hinting at Ten Years After but stealing freely from The Rolling Stones, and the latter cherry-picking from a wider range of garage to psychedelic rock influences. These two are superb.

It's a varied album and all the more engaging for this.

This third album from Trembling Bells is a masterpiece. Despite drawing on many themes and influences the music is absolutely unique. I've not stopped listening to the cd since getting it.
Listen to the clips here on Amazon for a feel of the music and then buy it!

What a frustrating album! Great songs, terrible recording. Vocals fighting with guitars. Distortion where clarity is needed. I'd love to hear this recorded and produced again. Nods to Fairport Convention and Jefferson Airplane/Grace Slick are fine, though I did feel that the album has a bit of an identity crisis and lacks coherence. Maybe this is a band who should be seen live? I'll give it a go.

Like another reviewer, I came across Trembling Bells at an Unthanks gig (the ghastly Nottingham Glee Club). The Bells were personally introduced by Rachel Unthank, a rather nice gesture, but I was not expecting what was to come! After a live gig that blew me away, I went and bought this CD and have nearly played it to death after only a week. 'Just Like the Rainbow' and 'Goathland' have magnificant soaring vocals and quite understated backing, while 'Otley Rock Oracle' is a manic guitar-driven ride across West Yorkshire. 'New Year's Eve..' is a perfect closing track that could well end up on a lot of people's list of classic tracks.

A future classic let down by too much compression. The music has a rockier edge than their previous albums and their songwriting has become progressively more focused over the years. This album is also blessfully free of inspiration from the overrated and underwhelming Incredible String Band; the guys that single handed made hippies unfashionable. This is genuinely a great album with great songwriting.

Although this album sounds fuller than the two previous ones it is still too compressed with almost no dynamic range. The rockier arrangement lent themselves more to compression so it isn't as spoiled soundwise as its predecessors.
The idea that every instrument should be as loud as everything else doesn't work for this kind of music (or any kind of music). Lets hope Trembling Bells apply more professional production values for their next album; something more in tune with the music that inspired them. Music that breathes.
