I love Blood Red Shoes and I could not wait for their 3rd album to come out. The record kicks off with title track "In time to voices", which I have to say is one of the best tracks on the whole album. The second track is "Lost Kids" a song inspired by the London Riots last summer and the bands new album. After that we move onto "Cold", if you are a fan of the band then you would have no doubt already heard this song as it was the album's lead single. At this point you have noticed a change in the bands sound; it is more full. You can see the progression, even if it has been a bit slower. Laura's vocals are also a lot stronger, the reason for this is because she says that it is due to all the alcohol consumed on tour.
The next two tracks are your typical good quality Blood Red Shoes song that we have become accustomed to. The album has a general mellower feel compared to the last one especially. It also has a few songs that feature and acoustic guitar, allowing for one of the best tracks, maybe even the best track on the album; "Nighlight". A song that features sparse drums and piano, definatley one the bands better songs. Then we move to "Je Me Perds" a distorted sub two minute song that is an overall rock out that I love. After that the rest of the album seems to drop to a steadily pace of quality, nothing mind blowing here, but still a good time to be had.
The band have always made good records but that might be there problem, they sort of started as they meant to carry on. Each album being as good as the next, and the previous. I hope that they will try and change direction on their fourth album because you can already hear that they have begun.
