Not What I Expected!,
This review is from: The Life and Times of Phoebus Brumal (Audio CD)
I am a die hard Fila fan. The thbing I always loved was there ability to be abstract and eccentric, underground yet fresh and cool. I hate to say it but with this release the mystery has gone. What I didn't like was the commercial bad boy vocals that pisses me off and makes it mainstream. Also the distinct lack of expression by the boys to creating another abstract album of wonderful weirdness. The UK produces the best music on the planet ESPECIALLY music that is ORIGIGINAL and once Fila were, but now they are on top of the pile of most artists who sell out to try and prove that they are diverse.
What was a beautiful love affair between me and that unique sound has ended, but at least I have all of their other amazing albums. Thank god they made those first.
Next time boys KEEP IT UNREAL as Mr Scruff says.
