Damned with faint praise
on 21 April 2006
I'll be really honest - I'm disappointed with this. I suppose it's unfair to expect a third album of the calibre of Antoher Green world or Before & After Science but I suppose that's exactly what I was hoping for, and this isn't it.
I like Eno's singing voice but it appears he doen't. At least three tracks here feature that bloody awful vocoder thing that Cher used years ago, and it spoils the tracks completely.
The dynamics I anticipated aren't here; the "open spaces" are filled more often and the songs are just not up to the standard I anticipated - I've lived with this album for a while before reviewing because of the way I felt.
It's okay but really nothing special.
