High quality speakers required to appreciate the whole spectrum of "butter wouldn't melt in your mouth" sound. Get the other album too.

I bought Finest Hour on the back of the glowing reviews here plus its position in my recommendations, as a fan of Hidden Orchestra, Cinematic Orchestra, Bonobo and others. I normally listen to an album to death on Spotify before purchasing but this one isn't on there (only later did I realise that you can listen to pretty much the whole thing on Submotion Orchestra's website).

I love the ideas behind this album - and in some place the fusion of genres works very well but in total the album doesn't do it for me.

There are some highlights - Ruby Wood's voice for a start, and Hymn for Him is a great track, as is Backchat (although at times the piano part reminds me a little too much of Massive Attack's Weather Storm). But if I listen to the album all the way through I just start getting bored, which isn't what I want.

It's obvious that this album is quite polarising - some love it, others really don't take to it, so at the very least ensure that you listen to the album on their website before you purchase to avoid disappointment.

I purchased this album by mistake, and I have to say what a great mistake that was, I was looking for Andreya Triana and I thought this album had something to do with her as she is amazing (it hasn't).
I have to say this album is as silky smooth as "lost where I belong" by Andreya Triana but in my opinion it is a better album. Ruby Wood provides vocals that make you want to melt, if you like zero 7, Bonobo or Sia, I am sure you will love this.
This album starts with the very chilled out "Angel Eyes" and on first listen I expected that to be the theme of the album, a chilled late night Zero 7 like chill fest, but no. This album has more depth with upbeat numbers like "pop and Lock" that almost take you into a sort of jazz garage vibe (yes I made that up). The one thing that I keep thinking when listening to this album is that I should be in a very expensive, very cool bar in the coolest part of town drinking something I can't afford. This album is the best album I have heard all year, I haven't been this excited about an artist since I discovered Bonobo all those years ago. Now click that mouse and buy it!

I discovered Submotion Orchestra while searching youtube for bands of the same caliber as Massive Attack. Submotion Orchestra's album Finest Hour did not disappoint. This is the perfect album for chilling late at night.

A sublime selection of jazz tinged, bass heavy, chilled out songs enhanced with the dulcet tones of Ruby Wood. Not since Portishead has an album moved me so much so quickly.

I bought this after reading a really positive review in the London Metro one day. Finest Hour is a really chilled out, tuneful album wth some amazing vocals and really haunting melodies.. In this day and age of formulaic pop, its great to have something different to relax to. Recommended!

This is such a beautiful album with some of the tracks which are just sublime - this is one of the best groups around well worth listening to and seeing them at the summer music festivals. Dont miss them!

If you are serious about Hi Fi, then this album should be in your collection. A great jazz infusion, with some serious bass. This is a top notch recording, just wish I could get it on vinyl.
