18 years into the Morcheeba project and three years after `Blood like Lemonade' the band's 8th album `Head up High' features the classic threesome, Skye and the Godfreys, with guest artists (as on 2008's seminal `Dive Deep') on four of the tracks.

Morcheeba's unique, intelligent and often witty mix of lounge jazz, rap, classic rock and electronic beats once more delivers their by-now predictable and quintessentially European sound. Although little new ground is broken here, the result will no doubt please the sizeable global army of Morcheeba fans.

The collaborators are Chali 2Na featured on `Face of Danger', Nature Boy Kim Kelly on `Please me Now', and Rizzle Kicks who add top-ten pop appeal to the catchy `To Be'. The erstwhile obscure talents of French chanteuse Ana Tijoux transforms `Hypnotized' into the album's stand-out track, her rapping-in-Spanish the unlikely but perfect hand-in-glove fit with the Morcheeba groove.

HUH is more up-tempo than BLL but the delicacy of the band's greatest work is somehow absent from this collection, with the possible exception of the poignant and haunting number `To the Grave' where Skye's singing excels, and the aforementioned `Hypnotized'. However, there's much else to enjoy here and although perhaps not destined for future greatness, HUH is much, much better than 95% of the music being churned out at present, and deserves plenty of airplay and strong sales - both of which no doubt it will enjoy. For the discerning fan this may be a dish to sample and pick at, rather than relish as a complete meal.

Since I first heard part of “The Sea” from their first album while shopping one day, many, many years ago, I have had a soft spot for Morcheeba. The albums have been a little uneven and the loss of Skye Edwards at one point seemed to have been a big mistake. Now she is back (again) we have the usual chilled and interesting blend of beats, harmonies and mixes. And that is where the disappointment comes in. There is nothing wrong but it is all a bit too safe, with the occasional brief surprise. I like Skye’s vocals but I keep going back now to the Dive Deep CD, which had several guest vocalists and more high points than the more recent Morcheeba works. There was the inspiration of bringing Judie Tzuke in and I guess I would just like to have a bit more of the same. So this is good but too safe.

This is now the second album that Morcheeba have done since the return of Skye Edwards on lead vocals. It has has lived up to my expectations with many diverse tracks that are well produced. Great CD album for playing on a good quality Hi Fi, they know how to get the best from a studio recording.

Some of the best tracks are Gimme Your Love, Face of Danger and Under The Ice, this track in particular showcasing Skye's silky smooth vocals. I can't say there is a single bad track. It's refreshing to have a band outside of the main stream creating such good quality music.

Will not disappoint Morceeba fans and will gain many new fans with this album.

An amazing album - can't stop listening to it.
Everyone should have in their collection.
Saw them live at The Forum, Kentish Town on the 19th and they were incredible, especially the guitar solos by Ross Godfrey.

As a fan of Big Calm, I brought this hoping it might have a similar vibe. In parts it has, but there are also some dreary tracks that send me reaching for the skip button. Overall, a mixed bag
