A new twist on the trip-hop theme
on 20 October 2000
Just when it seemed that trip-hop had settled down, Lamb came along and changed everything. The Massive Attack/Portishead sound had fixed this genre firmly in its place; or so we thought. From the opening vibrophone pulses of 'lusty', to the thundering d&b crashes and angry guitar on 'cottonwool', to the inspired, haunting cello on 'zero', this truly is one hell of an album. A brilliant mix of everything meaninfull and lush in today's music. Drum&Bass has been saved from turning into Trance, and has found a new purpose; providing backdrops to haunting, winty vocals. An excellent album!
