Hit and miss,
This review is from: The Garden (Audio CD)
This album has some quite good tunes on it, however the production in places leaves a lot to be desired. Nowhere is this more evident than in the seven nation army cover.
Alice Russell's voice is excellent, the musicians are very good, but they sound like they're not even in the same county as each other. This sense of disconnection is evident in other places, and if deliberate is an effect I don't much care for (you might, however). This coupled with poorly mastered bass sounds that produce rattles in most of my playing equipment, apart from my high end Hi-fi seperate system, make for a decidedly mediocre listening experience.
The music, however is very good. Catchy rythms abound, with some very nice progressions, but the texture of the sound again lets it down.
