Anyone who has been bouncing along, again and again, to Moloko tunes of the past - probably mainly 'Sing it Back', 'The time is now' and 'Pure pleasure seeker' - and have prayed and wished that Moloko would make a full album of pure genius - the wait is over. 'Statues' is the first album to fully show Moloko's incredible talent - who would have thought they could create an album this - not only funky (we knew that) - but also stunningly beautiful, cool and calm. 'Forever More' challenges any cool Moloko mix ever made - there is no way of listening to this without dancing, the deep thumping bass shoots straight to the core of your bones. The surprises are the massively beautiful and heartbreaking, slower, darker tunes like 'Statues', 'Over and Over' and 'The only ones' - It's almost unreal to hear Roisin's usually playful, hard-funk voice sounding so genuinely heartbroken. This is an album stuffed with superbly crafted songs and top-notch lyrics. If there is any taste out there ( let's face it...it's a rarity) Moloko will make music lovers all over gasp in awe.. Buy this album! Steal it if you must...
