5.0 out of 5 stars A party you don't forget!, 9 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Desperation State (MP3 Download)
This is an album that grabs you instantly, with its vibrant energy and slick skill. Hard to define the style... It's like Madness and Ennio Morricone held a party and Elton John gatecrashed and everyone got deliciously drunk and had a kick-ass time. Or something. I don't know. I just like the variety of it, with Matthew Sellors super-talented vocals at ease in reggae or deep ballad, and I dare you to pick a favourite.
Yes Sir Boss admitted drafting in a couple more horns for the album, but I can assure you that Tom First and Jehan Abdel-Malak are more than capable of sustaining a wind section live that will blow your socks off. You could listen to this album just for Tom's trumpet.
I love what Josh Stopford brings to the album, with the incredible My My, a haunting song that Matthew shows off perfectly, and the subtle use of the ukulele on a couple of tracks that lends great depth and character.
This is a collection of songs that you makes you find yourself humming randomly later, wanting to dance at awkward moments. I guess that means it wins.
Thank you, Yes Sir Boss, for a class album.
