As a newcomer to Moloko listening - memories of catchy dance tunes Sing it back, Time is now, but also seeing appearances on Jools Holland - I am stunned by 'Statues'. With a jazz/funk background but a soft spot for funky dance tunes I bought Statues speculatively for Cannot Contain This and Forever More, which are stunning productions but am now bowled over by the originality, class and great production values of the whole disc. The closing epic Over & Over is an extraordinary piece capped by the string arrangements of the long coda. I have never heard such punchy brass arrangements. Roisin Murphy's is a female voice to reckon with. This is great stuff!
