5.0 out of 5 stars Familiar Feeling?, 20 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Statues (Audio CD)
Well well well. Moloko are the kind of band who make me worried every time I listen to them. Worried, that is, that they are going to split up any moment, and leave me scouring the second hand CD shops in search of something to fill the void...
Fortunately for the time being they appear to be going strong. After the hard-going but rewarding Things To Make And Do, Roisin et. al. decided to make an album of "songs". So here we are with ten full length tracks (minus the 8 bitty filler tracks that sometimes detracted from their earlier fine work).
The CD opens where The Time Is Now left off, a semi acoustic samba based number Familiar Feeling. A lifting soaring track that moves and shifts constantly. Later, Statues (probably the most melancholy Moloko tune ever) laments with the fantastic lyric "If all the statues in the world would turn to flesh with teeth of pearl, would they be kind enough to comfort me?". There are a few lower points, unhelpful votes at the ready chaps - we all know that's what you use them for - the fairly lacklustre Come On and Cannot Contain This, but the standout tracks more than make up for the lack of imagination elsewhere. Moloko are a band that command and earn forgiveness in droves.
Bless 'em. Please don't split up, cheers.
