Despite being a long term fan....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Automation Baby (Audio CD)
I cannot give this album five stars. To my ears there is just something that does not click about this album,not been able to put my finger on it and for the first time find myself reaching for the earlier albums instead of the new one ,which is just a bit too "Euro pop" for my liking. At many points in the album it is as though they are trying almost too hard,is it possible there are just too much vocals on this album ,the music just seems lost under endless vocals that just seem to grate after a while. For the first time ever I have not purchased the singles that go with the album,just do not like them enough .
In contrast the tracks "Automation Baby" and "You couldnt see this coming" are just flawless ,to me the other tracks just do not get anywhere near them,but two tracks just do not save an album,normally Mesh albums are crammed with songs THAT good. Here is hoping the next one will put things right as I still consider myself a fan of their music,just not this one..
