Customer Review

on 20 May 2014
Have been a fan since they were a buzz word, seems I have to have all their albums (on vinyl) alongside what Koop had released with Yukimi .lol. Their introduction to the world, 'Little Dragon' is brilliant, no doubt about it, their other albums are good but not quite as good. Still, the curse of the first album follows many artists/bands, IMO much inspiration goes into the first work as a collection of past ideas and effort. Alongside that people become familiar with a sound and are expectant of the same after the first, often becoming dissapointed if the artist/group want to continue inspiring and introducing new ideas which rather than being concepts (as they would in building up the first album) are now contained within a time frame of label demands and expectant fans. Pressure serves not the creative. That being said this seems to be the furthest from what I'd expect to hear from them, more electronic than soul... and the album cover??? Wouldn't display this next to the others on a wall, depicts a down turn from Machine Dreams not one for us vinyl fans, they've lost a star from me there. This is their first departure from Peacefrog who only did a small run of their initial album on wax, Four Hundred from what I recall... will cost you £200+ if you wanted to hear how Analogue Synths and *that* voice sounds on vinyl. IMO this latest is not as atmospheric and consistent as their other work has been, what it lacks is almost shown in the uninspired cover art, can only hope their future isn't as bleak looking.
