True Music Lover? This is absolutely essential,

This review is from: A Touch of Cloth (Audio CD)
FB's first 'proper band' album, after its largely 'electronica' predecessors. Fantastically self-assured and original - elements of jazz, reggae, funk and synth are all blended into this whirlwind concoction. Just check out track one (The Bugs Will Bite)- Frantic beat... strange vocal bursts... what sounds like a Pat Metheny sample... then after 2mins the bass player arrives at the studio and kicks off an epic funk workout. Inventive, fun, serious, innovative, exciting and (here's that word again) essential. Buy it. Play it. Love it. Forever.
