8/10 Mike Staff review, 11 August 2011

I've been curious about this collaboration ever since the LP dropped but I couldn't justify splashing out for the somewhat pricey LP so this is my first go on these songs. On the A we've got Season's Trees, with a sultry vocal provided by the Norah Jones. I'm always a bit wary about these big hotshot singers getting in on these kind of collaborations because the big stars can have a tendency to showboat, but this is a deliciously smooth cut with silky, understated vocals alongside sumptuous strings and a tasteful little xylophone line. There's a bit of an Unfinished Sympathy vibe here. Flip it and on the B we've got The Rose with the Broken Neck, which is a bit of a darker, spookier number with boy/girl vocals by my best friend Jack White and someone else (is this Norah Jones too? Beats me.). It's a bit disappointing next to the A-side and kind of has a sub-Nick Cave sort of feel I guess. It's not bad or anything but the A-side is so slick and uplifting it was always gonna be a hard act to follow. Both these tracks sound a lot like the darker end of the ill-fated but brilliant Danger Mouse/Sparklehorse collaboration from a few years ago. I like it.
