This review is from: Sitting Around Keeping Score [Us Import] (Audio CD)
I remember eagerly waiting at my first N.E.R.D concert. I wanted to see Pharrell so bad. Initially when Spymob came on and started to strum away I was angry that they were not Pharrell. But after 5mins everything melted away.
Their sound is different to a lot thats out there. They are not as far removed or experimental as "Postal Service" who do similar music, but they stand out just enough in these days of clone bands.
The problem that Spymob will face is to get out from under the overbearing thumb of the Neptunes. Spymob have been N.E.R.D's support band for so many years that it seems like they are doomed to a future of "also featuring..."
Generally an all round album from the band that can't quite break out of N.E.R.D's shadow.
