Product description

Product Description

2004 album from Robin Proper-Sheppard, formerly of the God Machine. This, his stunning debut for City Slang may be the first record that he has released through another label in ten years, but he has at no point relinquished control of his music. Recorded and produced without any outside influences or intervention and then licensed to City Slang, it sees the sound of Sophia develop significantly from the introverted and almost country-tinged sounds of the first two studio albums, blossoming into a far more broad-shouldered beast, one that carries far more weight and even more intensity. It may at first be a shock to hear the band lean back towards the sound of his previous band, the God Machine, but it merely reflects the way that the band have grown whilst performing live. Enhanced CD features 10 tracks & includes screensaver & lyrics. Digipak. City Slang/Labels.

It's an injustice that Robin Proper-Sheppard is not recognised as one of the musical greats of the last decade. With the God Machine and then with Sophia, he has produced a succession of quite brilliant albums. With People Are Like Seasons and even Sophia's debut, he moved away from the God Machine's ever-mutating tumult to produce acoustic music of heartbreaking grace and depth. The opening three tracks here are in the same vein: there's the unrequited, impatient love song "Oh My Love", the perfectly understated "Swept Back" and then "Fool", a song of such melancholy and warmth it recalls the Stones' Goat's Head Soup.

But then things change as "Desert Song No. 2" sees the sudden, triumphant return of God Machine rock (that band, of course, recorded the original "Desert Song"), storming oceanics with sweeping orchestras and an insistent piano, all of it teetering on the very edge of feedback. Now we have the menacing electronica of "Darkness" and the snotty garage rock of "If a Change Is Gonna Come" before Proper-Sheppard slips back into the solemn soulfulness we've come to expect from Sophia. This is a tremendous album, and you should own it. --Dominic Wills
