5.0 out of 5 stars
Hotly anticipated, 27 May 2013
I'd been waiting for this for ages, I'd chanced my arm buying the first album on a whim but loved it so much I wanted to buy more, unfortunately I had to wait for the release date. This is a very different album from the first and that's great, It's less somber, more beat driven. I haven't ripped it to my mp3 player yet, it has been firmly installed in my car cd player.
I think "Life Round Here" with its insistent riff and slightly broken beats, vocal Harmonies, slow swelling chords and a huge sense of space is a triumph.
DLM is more like the first album.
Digital Lion has a huge chugging sequence, to contrast the acoustic guitar, wouldn't sound out of place on a Portishead album, and from me that is high praise.
Buy this, turn off the light, put it on and just soak it up.
