Oooh baby, how much do I love this record?
Maybe a little too much. Its almost enough to make you pawn your legs just to buy more copies, just in case yours is lost, damaged, stolen by gangs of evil monkeys hell bent on ruining my......sorry, I am taking medication. I think its time to just lie back and enjoy the supremely funky beats and the unbelievably smooth sultry vocals by Louise Rhodes. Why, she is just the sweetest little thang! She is teamed up with Andy Barlow who has a passion for all things with a beat like fifteen monkeys in a skip! His love of techno and drum ‘n’ bass provides that all-important urge to, ahem, ….get down.
Unlike the current mob of chill out type effort, this album strives to be original, swinging from smooth and rather groovy jazz to some fine breakbeats and drum'n'base like gubbins. Currently in the music scene we see a large rise in floppy monkey turd like UK Garage taking an unfair share of HiFis around the country and are in danger of seeing drum’n’bass becoming dry and irrelevant. Lamb have resurrected soul in a streamlined modernisation for this album and mixed it with a drum and bass that is warm, melancholy and accessible without losing any respectability.
These guys are now the proud parents of 2 more albums both of which supply that soul nourishing sound that everyone needs, but neither reaches the pinnacle of this first effort.
One of the few downsides of lamb are that one their label, Fontana; they are stabled with James and The Cocteau Twins. Aaaarrgh!
Finest tracks must be Lusty, Trans Fatty Acid and of course the peoples favourite Gorecki! Can you feel it? Can you feel the groove? Please feel the groove. Go on.
