Not as good as other Harbaliser albums,
This review is from: Something Wicked This Way Comes (Audio CD)
Sorry - can't agree with the other reviewers (who gave 5 stars) here! I'm a huge fan of Herbaliser - Very Mercenary and Blow Your Headphones are stunning albums of low down, sampled up hip hop (and Session One is very good as well).
However this one seems to be leaning towards (slightly pretentious) jazz. Basically it is full of random doodlings and very little quality hip hop, and very few "songs" (just lots of ideas). Not a terrible album (there are some highlights - Something Wicked and Good Girl Gone Bad) but those expecting the usual full on Herbaliser (like me!) will be disappointed. Stick to the aforementioned albums unless you're a completist (sadly like me :)).
