4.0 out of 5 stars An Impressive Set..., 8 Aug. 2008
By 
This review is from: I AM KLOOT/PLAY MOOLAH ROUGE (Audio CD)
Strong tunes, a typical characteristic of early I Am Kloot albums, were frustratingly in short supply on the band's last album "Gods and Monsters", so it's a welcome relief that "Play Moolah Rouge" is more in keeping with this great little bands first two records.

With an expanded line-up (this 3 piece is now bolstered to 5), "Play Moolah Rouge" has a rough captured-live-in-the-studio feel, which is a result of being recorded and mixed in a matter of days. It's an approach that suits the band perfectly. John Bramwell's vocals have a particularly unpolished rasp that enhances the more maudlin and introspective songs on this record ("Down at the Front", "Only Role In Town") very well.

The other most obvious stength to this album is that it's well crafted; with obvious thought being given to structure and sequencing, and aside from one clanger on the album ("Hey Little Bird", which marries a pretty melody to some uncommonly trite lyrics) it's another strong set from the band.

Finally, the accompanying DVD with the special edition is worth seeking out, as it mixes great live footage of the band playing songs from the album alongside an entertaining interview with Bramwell.
