I didnt expect that Lamb could return to their absolutely outstanding debut (well, just deep in my heart :-)). They are evolving slowly and you have to take it. On Fear Of Fours, which is a rather brilliant album too, they started to be more sophisticated. On What Sound they started to be simpler, but in a different way. And now they are getting a bit sweeter. But although I was really a bit dissapointed at first, now I like it very much and listen to it very often. I think the highlights are "Stronger" for its beauty and simplicity, "Learn" for its beauty and rawness and "Please" for its beauty and playfulness. When I heard chorus of "Wonder" the single at first I really almost got goose bumps. But it REALLY is the most sugary thing on the album, so dont be afraid if you dont like it... All in all, Between Darkness And Wonder is high above average, really great album. I dont think its better than Fear Of Fours, but it definitely is as good as What Sound (no Gabriel though). You REALLY MUST check it!

Imagine you ring up some musician, who is well known in business. You tell him "Hi, I'm a singer. Do you want to work together?" This is how Louise Rhodes and Andy Barlow from Great Britain got together for the creative relationship called Lamb. Louis' mother was a folk singer. Her own voice is as brilliant. Andy was more into electronic studio music. But soon they found out how extremely well that matched. Their first album became one of the most important dance albums of the late 1990's. They are very well known in the club scene and everybody loves their spectacular life shows ever since. All following up albums became extremely popular. This is their fourth album "between darkness and wonder". It is smoother than ever, dark and happy at the same time. It gives you an idea of sadness, happy feelings, you can dream, dance and sing along. The first song "Darkness" starts with strange noises and violins, getting faster and faster until Louis' sings "I can see darkness now..." She seems to slip through darkness with a smile on her face and the music seems to become wider and brighter. The next song "stronger" is good for a slow dance through the night. "Sugar" gets lighter and lighter: "and now I can see!" It definitely will move your feet. "Angelica" again has this wide and light feeling of flying. Harmonies of electronic violins, piano and other noises, floating like a river in the mountains. Listen carefully! "Clouds clear" is finally a ballad, which will shake you. Six more beautiful songs to come. The new Lamb music is more pleasing than ever. It will surely touch your heart, not just right for these cold days. The more often you listen to it, the more you will love it!

It's never been that hard to write a review for a lamb-album. Being a die-hard-fan, capable of flying to different countries to get to a gig, i should be condemned to adore anything made by them.
And yet, it's different this time. The new album still has the special lamblike emotional intenseness, that lambfans are so in love with. Even more than on the other three records. It surely is the most intimate album of all. Lou seems to have discovered, that all her beautifull love-songs of the past also have a darker side. "i didn't know darkness until now.", being first line of the cd, is just the beginning.
And in this, it became an album of thoughts, assembled with a soundtrack to them. Less songs than before, more playing with sounds, less pulling beats, less exploding happiness. More time to think.
I know I'll still grow into it. But I'll need more time than before. 5 points, no doubt, but expect no "Gabriel" or "Gorecki" on this one (as maybe i did, when i pre-ordered it). They've taken a break from writing "hits", a break to ruminate.
A winter-album.

Just received this album after debating the pros and cons of the other reviews and must state that this is their best LP to date, it has the sound of Lamb playing live with a quality bass that doesn't mess about. Their simplification of the beat structure makes it easier to liken to and drops the sweet and sour taste that previous LP's had adopted. The only grumble was the inclusion of MJ Cole's remix of Gabriel which manages to trash a beautiful song within the first opening chords, only redeemed by the soft touch that Nellee Hooper lays on the 2nd remix. Throw away any reservations about getting this LP as it is truly wonderful.

This album is one still being digested by me and I am beginning to find different areas of interest. The highlights for me on this album so far are Stronger, Angelica, Wonder, and Hearts and Flowers. This album feels quite different from the last and that difference in mood and tonal quality is something that makes Lamb an interesting, evolving, and driven musical pairing. If you have only just stumbled across Lamb, then you're in for a treat! If you're already a fan, satisfy your curiosity and you won't be disappointed. Warm and fleshy, magical and uplifting, escapist and realist - truly beautiful!!

I generally agree with all the other reviews here....
my observation is that the production is reminiscent of the recent Peter Gabriel album (with a similar wider than average dynamic range - don't turn your hifi up too high during the quiet start of track one..)or maybe Hounds of Love era Kate Bush. Intimate and warm sounding yet with lots of detailed textures to focus on if you're so inclined. Strings are airy and beautiful rather than phat and lush and guitars are clean and chimy rather than rocky and the vocals are as beautiful as we all expect from Lamb. Buy it now.
