3.0 out of 5 stars I am Kloot - Great, but lack production, 24 April 2008
This review is from: I AM KLOOT/PLAY MOOLAH ROUGE (Audio CD)
I am Kloot are a fantastic band, so close to breaking out into the mainstream, but saving their gritty Manchester souls and bad teeth. Having seen them play most of the songs off this album live, I can safely say that it's a great album with some amazing songs. However, having had the CD version for a while now, I have to say that it doesn't compare. The production is very poor, especially when compared with their previous album "Gods and Monsters". It's not very clean, individual instruments are hard to pick out, and it sounds unfinished - some badly produced albums sound gritty, this just sounds like a low-quality live recording. The song "The Runaway" is a good example - the vocals kind of melt into the background distorted guitar, and the resulting fuzz is a little hard on the ears.

Yes, they're a great band, and yes the songs on this album are amazing, classic IAK, but the production lets the whole thing down.

You are sadly utterly and totally wrong about the production values on this record. I know that with Gods and Monsters the band wanted more of a low-tec live feel similar to Natural History but it ened up sounding comparitively harsh and tinny. With this record there are no such issues as sound is both rich and truthful. Anyway, this is all missing the point (only geeks and hi-fi nuts bang on about this sort of thing) this above all this record has some of the best of I am Kloot to date.
