My new favourite electronic duo.,
This review is from: Wherever I Am I Am What Is Missing (Audio CD)
This album would have been completely undiscovered by me if it weren't for MTV 2's 120 minutes. After seeing 'Alphabet Soup's cool, chilled out video, I went and bought this album, went home and listned to it's equally chilled, glacial vibes. But I'm not convinced.
It's hard to fault the first 5 tracks on this album, each one funky and rolling by with a robotic like focus. Margaret has one of the most beautiful voices i've heard and the drummer excels with his synopcated beats.
However, track 6 'Diamonds and Stones' is a low watermark, being stripped down to the barest of beats and Enya like harmonies. It's all a bit to basic for my taste and the tracks that follow, although sporadically brilliant, don't match to the first half of the album.
This album may not be 'classic', but then it's too cool to care.
