3.0 out of 5 stars Too much money, not enough tracks!
Let me start by saying that 'Slo Light' is a good album, but the 14 price tag is ridiculous! There was an MP3 version somewhere on the web a few weeks before the release of the CD, featuring the 10 album tracks, plus 3 bonus tracks including 'Sensor' which is my favourite track by Davidge. I decided not to buy the MP3s at the time for 8 because I wanted to buy the CD,...

This review is from: Slo Light (Audio CD)
Bought this for Cate Le Bon's participation on one track and that is what is getting five stars. The rest of the album is not at all bad and is mostly enjoyable although there are a couple of duffers. Well worth buying.

This review is from: Slo Light [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Great Album if you like trip hop you must get this. Fantastic vocals and beats superb production every track a winner. Perfect for chilling outside with friends or wine. Brought on a whim and if you get the vinyl it's cut to perfection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much money, not enough tracks!, 4 April 2014

This review is from: Slo Light (Audio CD)
Let me start by saying that 'Slo Light' is a good album, but the 14 price tag is ridiculous! There was an MP3 version somewhere on the web a few weeks before the release of the CD, featuring the 10 album tracks, plus 3 bonus tracks including 'Sensor' which is my favourite track by Davidge. I decided not to buy the MP3s at the time for 8 because I wanted to buy the CD, which I thought would cost 10. Call me crazy, but I still like to 'own' the album in a physical sense so I always buy CDs that I really like rather than MP3s.

However, this release is 4 more than I thought it would be and the three bonus tracks are not even included! I noticed that the album was listed as 'currently unavailable' on its release date and I can't help but think that the reason it now costs 14 is because of a limited release of some kind. But, I am still disappointed by the exclusion of 'Sensor' and 'Hummingbird', both of which would have been great album tracks.

The rest of the album is pretty good, in some places very good. 'Slo Light', 'Riot Pictures' and 'Anyone Laughing' are my favourite tracks on the album; each one bursting with rich, atmospheric music and hauntingly beautiful lyrics. Davidge applies this formula of strong female vocals and dense, moody music throughout the album, but I found certain songs like 'Gallant Foxes' and 'How Was Your Day?' were a little lacking in their execution. I would have gladly abandoned either of these tracks in favour of the two excluded songs that I already mentioned.

Comparisons with Massive Attack's later work were always going to be inevitable and I can't avoid making some myself. For me, this album is basically 10 tracks that all sound a little bit like 'Teardrop' and 'Paradise Circus'. 'Slo Light' lacks those epic imaginative tracks like 'Antistar' or 'Atlas Air' as well as any kind of strong male vocal tracks like 'Pray For Rain' or 'Angel' which might have given it a little more depth and variety. Plus, it would have been really interesting to see Neil team up with his old pal Robert Del Naja for at least one track

So, in conclusion, I won't be buying this version of the album. I might still get the MP3 pack if I can find it, but I would have greatly preferred a hard copy. But then again... maybe i won't. The music is predictably top notch and most of the lyrics are brilliant too, but I just found that it never quite reached the dizzy heights that it was expected to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Magnetic pull of frequencies in the music but lame options on how to buy it., 24 April 2014

This review is from: Slo Light (Audio CD)
This is going to be super quick review. The album is very well crafted and has the same feel as the Massive attack albums, Mezzanine onwards and Radiohead material too. While my purchase was made through Amazon the actual CD was only available from a retail store in New Zealand. I am in London UK. What on earth is that about? How can it only be available from that location? No sense at all. I'm sure more stores in more locations stock it now but that was / is a truly sloppy start.
