5.0 out of 5 stars This is one amazing album, 21 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Mind Bomb (Audio CD)
Matt Johnson always releases quality music and he I guess is his own harshest critic. You can tell he has thought about every nuance musically and lyrically. His words are just so right, they slot into place with the music whilst the intent and meaning behind them draw out such subconsciously hidden truths it can take your breath away. You need many listens to this album to begin to get a feel for the whole thing. I say this because something strikes you and you end up ruminating on it while the album plays on.
Musically there is so much to enjoy, there are many really complex and lush tracks ,'August and September' is a good example. Something I really appreciate in this album is that it is unashamedly political and looks at things on a global scale. Generally this is seen as unfashionable and critics get their backs up about it. Well what can you do if you have a brain and some integrity. However, there are also superb songs which deal with things at a very internal and personal level.
Listen to this one with the volume up and the lights off. If you like intelligent, passionate music of any genre be it hip hop, indie, jazz or folk give this a try.
