This review is from: In Our Gun (Audio CD)
Welcome back to Gomez who have returned with their best album yet. It is a dramatic departure from what went before, but they have reinvented themselves in spectacular fashion. Traditional Gomez tracks - Even Song, 1000 times, Miles End sit brilliantly well with the more electronic styles of Army Dub, Ping One Down etc. In Our Gun and Sound of Sounds are gorgeous. The vocals and musicianship are the strongest yet. Gomez have always been good songwriters, now they have become great songwriters, as this album is less lyrically ambiguous, they say what they have to say and move on. The 6 minute songs have gone - they're for live gigs now, making for a much more solid and neat sounding album. This shift in style could have been a disaster, but Gomez have made an electronics tinged rock album, that could only have been made by Gomez. Britain should thank Gomez not knock them!! Own this album now!!
