5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the 1 star review
criminal that his/her review has dragged the score down on this - as stated a slow burner but full of hooks and melody - probably worth 4 stars to be honest but seeing as the 1 star review (from somebody who has awarded scissor sisters 5 stars in another review!!) has dragged the average down i'm giving it 5. If you liked the A1 ep from a couple of years ago you'll like...

1.0 out of 5 stars Someone's having a laugh...
Someone's having a laugh somewhere if you call this drivel music. It's only there for those who are so stoned they don't care what they're listening to. If you wanna get stoned to music there are plenty of other artists out there that will take you to that nice place. This is just boring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing yet slightly unsettling. It definitely grows on you!, 14 Oct 2013
This review is from: Psychic (Audio CD)
Upon my first listen I was not that impressed. Lots of 'clever' technological noodling with random sounds coming in & out for no particular reason.

I decided to stick with it and listen to it a few more times because I wasn't familiar with these musicians' work or the genres in which they work. It started to click together much more as a whole! The atmosphere of the album is spacious yet claustrophobic at the same time (not quite sure how that works, but it does!) and demands a full listen rather than picking out individual tracks. The first track however, Golden Arrow, is over 11 minutes long but doesn't outstay its welcome. I could happily have another 5 minutes of it, as it does take a bit too long to get going - but when it kicks in it's fantastic. In fact I think a few of the other tracks could have been extended/developed further so that the album is around an hour in length than 45mins.

The build up of sounds throughout the album help create the stage for the music itself, which makes for a fascinating listen. There is some low-end, chest-punching rhythmic bass (which I always love!) and some minimal but really effective blues-y guitar chords. The vocals are echoed and breathy and although fit with the context of the music, never really satisfy. but maybe that's the point!

So, an arty chin-stroking album that's far too clever for its own good, or an intriguing yet slightly unsettling body of work that reveals more & more upon each listen? For me, definitely the latter. I'm glad I stuck with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album, 19 Oct 2013

Like a dance-inflected Pink Floyd for the 21st century. Beautiful hypnotic music for either background listening or focusing on. Strongly recommend

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music !, 27 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Psychic (Audio CD)
Hi,

This music is a modern mixture of Jarre/Dire Straits/Groove/Downtempo. Just great for the nice evening with friends at the table, before the party or just to listen alone.

The album could be longer, but in general it's great !

I can't wait the next cd from these guys.
