6/10 Phil Staff review, 08 March 2007
When that 1st JULIAN FANE album came out I was well impressed. I thought he was amazing and he's gonna be massive. A couple of years later his new CD called Our New Quarters is released on Planet Mu and now I think he's a whining get. What's changed? Well very little to be honest. But for some reason this really grates on me now. The opening track sounds like a manic depressive singing God Save The Queen which is just plain odd. He seems to whine in a sort of sub Thom Yorke misery style super whinge which makes me want to hurl things absolutely everywhere. Musically it's excellent. Somewhere between Sigur Ros and the entirity of Kid A. The track New Faces sounds exactly like it was written after an extremely enjoyable listen to Kid A.... mmmm I can do that!! 
It's not bad at all. It's extremely competent and as I said the music is excellent. BUT he needs to sort his voice out and the music is way too derivative. Also (if what I said isn't enough) I get the feeling this doesn't really fit in with what Planet Mu do anymore so I kind of think he's on the wrong label and he'd do much better on a different label. Maybe Radiohead's label perhaps??
