4.0 out of 5 stars Less vocals!, 6 Nov 2011
I bought this as a random purchase and on first listen actually felt like I'd need to return it, which is something I never do. The vocals simply annoyed me - I can't quite put my finger on it but it felt like an album where it was trying too much to be a bit electronic and a bit indie. I pressed on however and listened several more times and have still come to the conclusion that this would be a much better album with either none or considerably less vocals, in fact it could have been a real gem had it been purely instrumental. Not that I'm against vocals, I just don't think they work here which is a shame as they have a real impact on what could have been a 5 star album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning as always., 1 Nov 2011
I don't think I've ever put up a review here before but while listening tonight to the latest offering from the Black Dog felt inspired to throw up a few words. Basically The Black Dog return to much more dancefloor orientated material after their previous brilliant ambient offering 'Music for Real Airports'. This is a pretty dark album and plays as a continuous mix which is really nice - from reading the notes on their release label 'Soma' they wanted to achieve the sense of their live shows and if this CD is anything to go by a visit to a live show is a must. There has been a lot of good releases so far in 2011 but I think this is likely to become my album of the year, certainly in… Read more
