Another good album and the return of Skye Edwards,
This review is from: Blood Like Lemonade (Audio CD)
Morcheeba have released seven albums now. "Blood Like Lemonade" sees the return of the bands' original vocalist Skye who contributes greatly to their sound. After a dispute between members, she was absent from the past two recordings. She was evidently missed as their trademark sound is now back.
This release is good, although possibly not as strong as their first two albums "Who Can You Trust" and the critically acclaimed "Big Calm". There are plenty of catchy tunes such as "Even Though" and "Blood Like Lemonade", the later being reminiscent of "Part Of The Process". "I Am A Spring" shows a softer side to Skye's instantly recognisable and unique vocals. "Self Made Man" is very smooth and slick and the final track "Beat Of The Drum" is a great song to end this accomplished ten track offering.
The only critisism I can find with this album is that the two instrumental tracks "Mandala" and "Cut To The Bass" are a cut below the rest, being quite repetitive and predictable. But that does not take away the fact that "Blood Like Lemonade" is a classy affair.
