5.0 out of 5 stars Simply, and honestly, breathtaking., 10 April 2005
This review is from: Half These Songs Are About You (Audio CD)
I heard about this band from a friend, who had seen them live, and thought I'd like them... and on the strength of his opinion, I decided to buy this CD. OH MY, was I happy with him!
It is a completely superlative album from start to finish, from a duo you can tell believe in what they are doing and love every second. Impossible to categorise, they have carved a new niche in guitar driven/beat poet/hip hop/dance band, (await the genre in record stores soon).
This album, from the exuberant,exciteable "call it up", or "love rage on" which any dance-band outfit would aspire to produce, to the deeply expressive "jcb", which in all honesty moved me to tears, and yet had me smiling at the last...
This album has that sort of quality to draw anybody in, with the songs having the stark edgy honesty of "the streets", and yet the beautiful flowing musicality of an Eva Cassidy record. The poetic and honest vocals manage to speak very deeply, without every losing their playful streak. If only all pop records were this good.
I don't have enough great things to say about this album, only that if these guys don't go far, I'll eat my hat.
