I've loved their first album, Living In A Magazine for a couple of years now, and picked this one up as soon as I saw it. I'd not even heard the single Grey Day.
I was not disappointed, as this is an older and wiser Zoot Woman which is no bad thing. The music is not necessarily any better or worse than their previous offering - it's just different. More mature and slightly darker, which is perfect for the coming winter.
Still based around a distinctive 80s synth sound, the melodies and lyrics here are less Hall & Oates and a little more modern electro/pop. I expect this was to avoid the criticisms the first album received about it being "too 80s". It took a while for people to get the first alum, but for me this is far more immediate.
On last listen I can only count three slightly below-par tracks on the album (3,6,8) which goes to show the overall quality of the album.
