8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 23rd February 2015
"The World Is Real" by Lake is quite a nice album. Opener "Do You Recall" is a take on '70s soft rock, or yacht rock and is little more alternative sounding, due to distorted guitar flourishes, than stuff that was on the decent "Too Slow To Disco" compilation that came out in 2014. "Bury The House" is a little closer to what you's expect from a band signed to Calvin Johnson's K label. Whilst being probably the most alternative sounding track on the album, it has elements of late '60s bands like The Free Design and west coast soft pop, a sound that carries on to track three, "Combat Culture". "Composure" makes the most of the Beach Boys influence and also sounds a bit like The Heavy Blinkers. "Go Back" has a bit of Todd Rundgren about it and is a lovely track. There is a bit of a Stereolab thing running through this album and it is most obvious on "Dog In The Desert". "In The Stubborn Eyes Of A Demon" is quite beautiful and at times sounds like it's being sung by Art Garfunkel, whilst the also beautiful "Reconcile" has a touch of Belle & Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch about it's vocal. Although each track remains in fairly similar parameters, this album does quite a lot and I like it.
