7/10 Mike Staff review, 01 May 2014

This promo came complete with a post-it from our pithy stockroom gremlin which cuts straight to the chase. "Not great, irritating vocals", he opines. I don't know if my consequently lowered expectations have anything to do with it but I'm finding the vocals on this record pretty bearable. It's not quite what I was expecting though - Karl Hyde of Underworld fame and Brian Eno of Brian Eno fame have made an album of quite upbeat synthpop with a nod to African rhythms and repetition and more than a hint of mid-era Pet Shop Boys to it.

It's the weirder moments that stand out. 'A Man Wakes Up' is a weird skeletal piece full of twitching, beeping synth loops and languid Afrobeat guitar melodies like a robotised Talking Heads that shudders into a live band groove midway through to incredibly uplifting effect. Sometimes things do get a bit dreary though. 'Who Rings The Bell' sounds like Morcheeba have produced a Billy Bragg ballad. In fact is that Billy Bragg singing? Can't be.

I'm finding much of this record to be pleasant background synthpop stuff but nothing to get particularly excited about (although there's every possibility that further depths will be revealed upon repeated listening, this being Eno and all). Nobody's embarrassing themselves here but for my money it is slightly disappointing after Eno's recent and excellent 'LUX'.
