Customer Review

on 13 August 2007
Hood are just simply amazing. This release, together with Cold House, are classics. Forget the labels (folktronica, indietronica etc....) it's just sublime music. This is what Radiohead wish they sounded like. The singles (the negatives... & the lost you) are the boldest things they've done to date. The Negatives is an off kilter soul song, I wear! The Lost You samples Robert Wyatt (and he's never sounded so good!) What's notable about this record is that Hood have ditched some of the glitchy electronica of Cold House for a more organic, wall of sound approach. Layer upon layer of instrumentation and detail give this record a warmer feel. The production is amazing. Still Rain Fell starts off with an amazing stop/start guitar sample and gives way to strings and the most beautiful lyrics I've heard in a long time "So much for the evening light/ It's gone before you hurry home/ Around here the walks are so long/ There's never chance to raise yr head/ But here's to the skyline/ And the tower blocks who block it out." And I've got to disagree with a previous reviewer - the singing is heroic too - vulnerable, yearning. It matches the mood of the music perfectly. If you like this also check out Cold House and Cycle of Days and Seasons.
