After a over long break, Paul Tucker and Tunde Baiyewu come back to the charts with a new single release. After such a long time away, the familiar Lighthouse Family sound still remains, and is easily picked up again. Free follows on from the more mellow ballads such as "Sun in the Night" from their second album, being upbeat while still somewhat understated. A nice touch at the end of the track is the fluid mixing in of part of the U2 classic "One", which fits nicely with the song's powerful message. One can only wait to see if the group can recapture the success achieved by Ocean Drive, but if this CD is anything to go by, then there is every chance.

I hate to be the voice of dissent here, partly because I rather liked the Lighthouse Family's early stuff, partly because other reviewers made points about "real" music that I tend to agree with! But...
The last album by the Lighthouse Family was released the thick end of 4 years ago. So they've had 4 years to craft their latest album. And their big comeback single is... a cover. I REALLY think that if a band has 4 years to write an album and their showcase piece is a cover of an old song it begs the question of whether they really have anything left. I tend to be somewhat suspicious of cover songs, except when used as a b side, though I feel that a band can be excused if they really have an exciting new take on something. But this doesn't deliver. It is probably the worst version of this song (an old jazz standard) that I've heard. The instrumental version by Billy Taylor is used as the theme music for BBC television's Film:2001 programme and is a classic in it's own right. There is also a very passionate vocal version by Nina Simone. What does the Lighthouse Family version have to offer that these versions don't? Well.... not a lot. Whoever came up with the new arrangement should hang his head in shame. The backing beat is soulless and sounds pre-programmed. I could have come up with it using the demo function on a casio keyboard. They have included a gospel group as vocal support but both the Nina Simone version and the Billy Taylor version have strong gospel influences which sound a bit less, er, twee than they do here. There's no raw passion here. It's just incredibly, incredibly hollow. remove the gospel warblings in the background and they have taken a great jazz standard that really had something to say and turned it into something suspiciously close to muzak.

Just take a look at the current top 10 and you will not see a band like the lighthouse family. More like "afroman" et al. This is why it is a great and very welcome return of the band that Britain has by now forgot. Their last single was Dec 28th 1998, last album in 1997.
This song is a wonderful and mellow number which will leave a good taste in your mouth. It won't get to number one, then again, i wouldn't expect real music to reach number one, but it certainly derserves the top spot. But, as we and everyone know, it will be lucky to break the top 20.
A fantasic single and the best value cd they have realesed so far with an interactive cd with album clips, sung lyrics, the full video, biography, wallpaper and photos makes this a must buy for any fan of the genre or anyone wanting to hear real music.
The future of British music is once again safe from the ridicule and slander which currently murders our charts. Roll on the album on Nov 19th!!
