If I had a lire for all of Simon Posfords good tracks I would bail out Italy and have change.
Over the years in his various guises he has made my jump, whoop and cry with delight and sadness!! Surely there should be a Composer Laureate in the UK. Right, enough praise, having read some of the other reviews, I expected to be a little revilied by the pop sounds!! All I can say is, if this is pop then the charts would be a happier place, agreed the production format is what would be called POP GOOD, but POP it isn't. Proper lyrical content with ethreal backing, flockin great!! Not mindless teenage witterings set to a borrowed track AKA POP!!
Unlike Flock of Beeps, there is far more vocal, but the mood is the same, a progressive growth throughout the album, rather like a collection of stories honed into a great chapter. The sampling is, as ever, spot on and make sme glow inside.Night leads me Astray being the crescendo to the vocal popesque before decent into good honest (psy) trance. Maybe I am a SP-Spotter, but I love this album and I strongly encorage anyone with independant thought to buy it! So thats most of the UK out then!! :)
I use Younger Brother as a lure, my partner "doesn't like Dance/Trance" (Metal bin smashing and cat squeezing or something is her bag), however, through the gift of Younger Brother and OTT to some extent, I have nearly got her to Eat Static!!
