- England Fallen Over by epic45
10/10 Mark Saunders
I was searching for something interesting to listen to on MySpace, and I happened upon Epic 45's page. The first track to autoplay was England Fallen Over. And it's wonderful! It has the vague feel of an Orb or Groove Armada composition, maybe, but more direct and hypnotic somehow. Vocally, it reminds me most of early OMD (a high compliment), and has a similar feel to some of their songs like Statues maybe. I just love everything about it. It's well-produced, the melody is simple and repetitive, but in that Verve Bittersweet Symphony-like way where you can sit and listen to it for hours, the drums are perfect (and interesting in a 'not-techno' way, like OMD again), the vocals are appropriate to the mysterious mood and nicely mixed. It's difficult to say how impressed I am with this! (I'm listening to the track as I write, and I can see myself hitting 'repeat' for quite a while). There's nothing here to pick on as a poor element. I think I'm going to have to buy it!
