9/10 according to Phil (Norman Records) on Thu 28 Jun, 2007Coveted abum of the week prize this week goes to Verbose with his outstanding album called 'Wonder'. This has just arrived from Japan this week from the Moamoo/ Art Union label and it's a corker. This is quite different to his last album on Neo Ouija.... It's almost post rocky without the rock. ie post.... Beautiful textured electronic music with layer upon layer of loveliness. There's hidden treats to be found on repeated listens which reveal themselves later and smack you in the face for not noticing them earlier. I can hear bits of Yellow 6 in there in it's drifty lovelyness and there's also a heavy Mono influence I reckon as well. From start to end this is a fantastic listen. For fans of Maps & Diagrams, Yellow 6, Mono and other such pretty pretty. Muchly recommended!

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
