4.0 out of 5 stars Change of direction for Lloyd?, 29 July 2006
This review is from: Music in a Foreign Language (Audio CD)
I bought this album on it's release in the UK and on the back of adoring the previous albums: The Negatives (our Honeymoon album travelling around New England - my wife can still sing along to every track despite claiming to hate Lloyd's music!)and Love Story (an unexpected gem as far as I was concerned). I have to say that I played this CD and really was disappointed - I just didn't get it.

A few years down the line and with most of my CD collection now on my MP3 player - it is very easy to revisit old albums. This CD I played again whilst wandering the New Forest in the sunshine - it is now played regularly. Whilst his previous two albums were play out loud - this one, for me at least, seems to work best through headphones. The music has an insular feel and headphones add to this vibe.

This album, for fans of Lloyd may at first feel disappointing, if you were expecting more of the same. Take another listen - it may well surprise you - it certainly did me. Perhaps the music reflects not the era of the recording, but the mood of the artist and can only be appreciated when the listener is in the same place in life?
