Customer Review

on 29 September 2003
If you've never heard of the UK-based band LAMB before, you've missed out on what is possibly one of the most unusual and most contradictory band formats in recent history: Louise Rhodes, a zen-influenced vocalist with a jazz/folk background, opposite Andy Barlow, a Drum'n'bass-influenced DJ also known as 'The Hipoptimist'. Their wildly conflicting personal preferences in style are nowhere more apparent than here in their first album. Inluding influences from Henryk Gorecki's "Symphony of Sorrowful Songs", and from personal experience (Zero describes Lou's reaction to miscarriage), their style is sufficiently distinctive for many die-hard fans to be hard-pressed to give them a succinct description - although the moniker Trip-Hop, linking them to Kosheen and Portishead etc., is the one most most often used; other parallels might include Sugizo and Iona. Undoubtedly the best track on the album is "Gorecki", an intensely passionate ballad whose lyrics were used as part of Nicole Kidman's 'If I Should Die' poem towards the end of "Moulin Rouge". An essential for any fan of music that expands boundaries.
