gomez find new sound; keep old,
By A Customer
This review is from: In Our Gun (Audio CD)
Gomez have created quite a clever album here; it is true that whatever they write will be good because they have the power and the ideas to carry it off, but this is particularly fine. It carries that new, punchy, almost over-mastered quality which is reminiscent of the new Eels release 'Souljacker' last year. Those Gomez fans who liked the Machismo EP will enjoy more of the same, with the old sound of Pick Up The Pieces and Step Inside thrown in for good measure. Those of you who remember Gomez as 'that band that sang that song about Piccadilly' then approach this with an open mind; it's not that you missed out of the evolution of Gomez - they just move very quickly.
