Bad cover, great record!
on 9 July 2004
While "Road Music", their first album, was a reasonably "lo-fi" recording, "True Love & High Adventure" shows what the guys can do with a bit more time and cash at their disposal. The band manage to keep the loose, airy feel but the production really shines on this record (not that "Road Music" reallly suffers, as the songs are superb as they are).
The arrangements are lusher, as are the vocals but without getting too cluttered - a fine balancing act and one the boys pull off admirably. Additional instruments, such as horns & flutes decorate a number of tracks, bringing a new element to an already rich sound.
If you're sitting chilling, this album is a joy to listen to...
