This review is from: And Then We Saw Land (Audio CD)
I'll certainly go along with the four star ratings offered by the other reviewers. This is once again,an excellent offering from those new age minstrels from London Town.
For someone who hasn't heard Tunng before then this is probably their most instantly accessible work. The experimental electronic jiggery pokery is less evident and several of the tracks have-dare I say it- a poppy vibe! As someone else has mentioned, Tunng female vocalist Becky Jacobs is much more to the fore than previously. The album has a lovely flow which fits in with its nautical feel. Each track melding effortlessly into the next.The sound quality is to my ear,really fresh and sharp. The instruments and vocals clearly defined in their own spheres. Tunng go back to basics with some of the tracks drawn from their folk roots. Not surprisingly,there is a sea shanty-esque sound coming through as both instruments and lyrics suggest that they have consciously set out to create a seafaring concept album of sorts.
A great live band and a great studio outfit to boot!
