5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully constructed songs, Britain's best kept secret, 15 Sep 2007
This review is from: Sugar And Spite (Audio CD)
I find it very puzzling that Unkle Bob are not one of the most popular bands in the UK. Their music is so well written, instantly likeable and performed with real skill by talented musicians and a very gifted singer. Months after buying this album I can still quite happily listen to it back-to-back three of four times.

I'd describe Unkle Bob's sound as a mixture of R.E.M., Sufjan Stevens, Embrace and Keane. Their songs are generally quite sad but occasionally have a hint of menace. Acoustic guitars, pianos, banjos and strings feature heavily along with a healthy dose of vocal reverb. The result is an instrumentally rich sound which is the perfect fit for the tuneful melodies that the album comprises.

I think it's only a matter of time before the world discovers these songs. They're too good to be ignored.
