This review is from: Natural History (Audio CD)
I had heard of I Am Kloot for a long time and believed that they were just another new-fad acoustic band (i am referring to the likes of Elbow, Alfie, Turin Brakes etc which are all well and fine but hardly inspirational). How wrong I was! Sure the acoustic guitars are there, but this album pushes the boundries and breaks the mould of how music should be, and surprisingly in doing so, it somehow still manages to retain its catchy pop feel. Simplistic yet strangly enchanting melodies run as an undercurrent throughout the whole album and every song has you humming along by the end of each track. For instance the track 'Twist' bears a close resemblance to the classic childrens song 'The Cat Came Back' which has been interlaced with the songwriters troubled mind, which is truely inspirational. "Theres blood on yer legs, Twist, Snap I Love You". I would rarely give top marks for an album as this generally suggests that it is perfect, but this album is just that. Natural History has to be one of THE albums to have in your collection whether a fan of this genre of music or not. Do not miss out!
