Change is NOT a bad thing!,
This review is from: In Our Gun (Audio CD)Just wanted to say that if you like the first two albums, but have put off buying this album, DON'T BE! The only supposed fans who have slated this are in my opinion missing the point.
Gomez's greatest virtue is that in this world of manufactured identikit boybands and made-to-a formula pop songs, Gomez are ignoring all commercial sensibilities and creating something new. Their first two albums showed this, and this merely continues their experimentation. Yes there's more "production" but so what? How good would Dark Side Of The Moon be if it was a bunch of acoustic 3 minute sing-alongs? What if The Beatles had talked George Martin out of experimenting with studio techniques when making Sgt Peppers? As long as the soul and melody of the song isn't lost (and it isn't) then the studio merely extends the boundaries within which the musician can realise their ideas.
Open your mind as well as your wallet.
