3.0 out of 5 stars Just...a steady album, 26 July 2007
By 
This review is from: CHICANE / SOMERSAULT (Audio CD)
What can you say about this album? For anyone that knows and respects FFTMC and Behind The Sun, Somersault is a clear departure from the sun drenched chill out sounds of Offshore and the pumping trance epic Saltwater. Like the unreleased Easy To Assemble before it, Somersault it is a slightly confused album with a very euro-pop sound. Whilst it is extremely well produced, the songs just are not strong enough to hold the album up, and nor are they in the typical Chicane style. Whilst all Chicane fans appreciate The Bracegirdle wanting to experiment with pop guitars and drums etc, you cannot help but feel that he cannot really emulate it and have a Chicane sound at the same time.

Overall, slightly dissappointing, and whilst, like another reviewer, I do admit to tapping my foot now and again, the album is such a departure from his style to be comfortable, with most of the songs seeming to be almost hollow sounding.

In truth I probably should give it 2 stars, but as a true Chicane fan it would feel like i was betraying a man that I truly respect.

Go back to your true music style Nick.
