An appetiser in between main courses.,
This review is from: Home & Minor (Audio CD)
I'm always eager to hear of new Oceansize releases and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one.
I have to admit I was slightly disappointed - after a couple of listens there was nothing on it I thought worth re-visiting. They have definitely entered experimental territory and the surprising aspect is there is hardly a loud guitar in sight. Could this be a sign of things to come on the new album?
Having said all this, even below their best Oceansize are still far more interesting than most other bands you are likely to hear. I just hope there is slightly more direction on the album than some of the rambling experimentation on here.
P.S. Kudos for calling track 5 'Didnaeland' (most probably a pun on disneyland?) - all people based in Scotland should have a chuckle at that one.
