Top critical review
on 11 February 2014
Had this in my wishlist, & subsequently got it for Christmas.
Let's make no bones - this is quality stuff, but whether it appeals to my sense of musical opinion is another matter.
Gilles Peterson was the catalyst for my hearing The Submotion Orchestra, & my ears pricked up when he had them on his show to promote their first album. This album though starts in superb fashion, with 'Intro' & then into 'Blind Spot', but from there on in, the music failed to captivate or excite me as I was hoping.
My nature will force me to listen to this again & again in time, because as I said, I can hear the quality, it just doens't seem to be grabbing me at this moment in time - but then my music tastes are transient.
