Not a patch on their previous albums
on 2 November 2013
Last year I bought their last album called "The Place I Left Behind" on CD. I was so impressed I bought it on double vinyl too. Since then hardly a day has passed without me playing at least one track. The songs are great, with impressive lyrics and tunes together with excellent production and recording quality.
On the strength of that album I bought this latest release "Jubilee" on double vinyl the moment I discovered it. I was expecting more of the same but oh dear I'm so disappointed. The sound is woolly, laid back mournful sounding songs with vocals sometimes difficult to make out. The songs aren't a patch on the previous album and they're sometimes a bit indulgent but my main gripe is the production which isn't very good at all. Side 1 is very forgettable, Side 2&3 OK and Side 4 a complete mess, mainly due to excessively long and boring tracks. I won't be playing it very often I suspect.
