4.0 out of 5 stars The second coming, 10 Mar 2003
This review is from: The Everlasting Blink (Audio CD)
I discovered Bent early last year, thought I had found something new, soon realised I had been pretty slow. That aside the first album was a joy. In a pretty mixed up world it is refreshing to hear a pair of artists making soothing, stirring and downright enjoyable soundscapes.
This second outing offers more of the same with some fantastic use of old artists on 'guest' sampled vocals. Nana Mouskouri makes a welcome return, joined by Billie Jo Spears, Captain and Tennille and even David Essex! Inspired.
The leaning towards country music is done is such a way as to leave you wanting to open up to a long neglected genre. BJ Cole's pedal Steel playing is wonderful. Whereas Goldfrapp use a Theremin to inject a haunting side to their ballads, Bent have found just the musician to polish their sound.
Bent's new album is a must. If you like Lemon Jelly you'll love this.
