4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting less-treated arrangements of varied tracks, 7 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Rhapsody (Audio CD)
This version of The Maths is the live line-up, with Hannah on Violin and guitarists augmenting a still majorly electronic group. Having seen them focus on Johns' harder material supporting OMD recently, which was a bit too intense after 45 minutes, this set is far more eclectic, and hence more enjoyable. The added guitars, although occasional, do lift the dynamics a bit.

There are still a few staples here, with John's vocals rawer and added real instruments, so something to please most of his fans.

Unfortunately the label forgot to credit the contributors in the actual artwork, so there is a sticker on the pvc sleeve, but I couldn't peel this off so once you've unwrapped the item their contribution is 'lost' forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unmissable Electronica, 5 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Rhapsody (Audio CD)
John Foxx And The Maths' Rhapsody is made up of 10 tracks recorded live at London's MemeTune Studios in late 2011, shortly after the UK Interplay tour. The Maths line-up on this session is as follows: John Foxx (Vocals, keyboards); Benge (Percussion, keyboards); Hannah Peel (Violin, keyboards); Serafina Steer (Bass, keyboards). It's fantastic to hear a live band playing with electronics, plus the addition of bass guitar and layers of violin also creates fresh angles and edges on many of the songs. Foxx's voice is often stripped of effects, adding an emotional shiver to songs such as 'Interplay", 'Hiroshima Mon Amour' and 'Just For A Moment'. Meanwhile the opening track is an instrumental version of 'The Good Shadow', which features - as do nearly all of the tracks - Hannah Peel on violin. Artwork is by Jonathan Barnbrook.
