If you have found your way to this album you know UNKLE, you know who they are, what they do and how well they do it.
Well, for all fans of the most innovative electronica/warm rock/intelligent organic mash ups the good news is that UNKLE have done it again.
The template remains as before, beautiful music with a plethora of guest vocalists (although less well known than on previous albums) and lush packaging.
Gavin Clark is here as well, marking his territory on yet another outing, he must have his own locker at UNKLE HQ by now.
The packaging in the limited edition is cool, a thick board book of nice photographic art is the perfect visual accompaniment to the music.
Quite simply, if you have liked anything UNKLE have done before you will love this.
Seek out and enjoy. This ain't pop music, this is the future.
*******UPDATE - 23rd AUGUST*********
Three months in and this album is still getting heavy airtime on my player. It still justifies five stars as far as I am concerned, I like each track on the album and even my two year old daughter constantly asks for me to play 'The Answer' (which she thinks is called Perfect Weather), the beat is so good on that track that she totally freaks out and dances her little legs off when it goes on. I listen to the album when doing workouts and it is perfect motivational music.
Anyone who derides UNKLE as bland background music is of course entitled to their own opinion but in the day where all pop music sounds identical and is designed to supply a quick fix (chorus after 20 seconds) I totally applaud UNKLE for making something different, deeper and more substantial.
