2.0 out of 5 stars 'U&I' is a disappointing album from Leila. 11 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
There's certainly a great deal of urgency on this album, the songs are altogether more direct than on previous releases. Leila has always floated between the quietly whimsical to insanely aggressive, and 'U&I' is no exception. Musically, Leila has opted for broad strokes rather than subtle flecks of colour. The album doesn't really find its feet till halfway through the album, on the dark and disturbing 'Interlace' and album highlight 'Colony Collapse Disorder', both great ways to fry your mind with noise. 'In Motion Slow' is Leila at her best, looped echoing synths over dreamy electronic washes.

As with previous albums there are plenty of songs, all produced in Leila's inimitable brand of experimental pop electronica. Mt. Sims vocals generally let most of the songs down though, his vocal range isn't exploited well within the musical arrangements. Lead single 'Disappointed Cloud' is a good example, a few others such as 'Welcome to your life' cry out for a different voice.

There's no doubting Leila's musical ability, but there's a question mark over whether she can produce a whole albums worth of sustained invention and retain the listeners interest. Too many songs either meander along or lack any inspiration. The sound of 'U&I' also feels dated, unlike some of the albums produced by bands in the past year or so which have been influenced by 80's and 90's electronic music. Sadly, 'U&I' is a disappointing album from Leila.
