8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 29th July 2015
Low are masters of restraint. Up until and including their fourth album “Secret Name” they had seemingly worked with the right producers. Their first two albums were produced by Kramer who had squeezed the best out of Galaxie 500, and you can hear their influence in Low’s early work. “The Curtain Hits the Cast” which preceded “Secret Name” was produced by Steve Fisk who was an in-demand underground producer at the time. Best of all however is Steve Albini, renowned for allowing bands to be themselves whilst having the know-how to record them perfectly – a great match for Low.
“I Remember” starts the album really slowly – there’s absolutely no rush here and it’s all the better for it. Low are at their best, I think, when Mimi Parker takes the lead vocal and “Weight of Water” is just sublime, it plays like a feather slowly falling to the ground, or an ice cube melting. “Don’t Understand” adds the right amount of drama just where necessary. “Missouri” and “Immune” are other highlights of a great album.
