Thirteen Senses: Contact
The opening moments of the title track here misleads one into thinking we might have another Badfinger 'Come and Get it' or Bowie 'Pretty Thing' on our hands here, but one's ardour is soon dampened when it descends from such heights into a Coldplay-esque dirge. Which will suit many a young listener but only serve to disappoint more demanding musos.
Sadly, for me, the album never really recovers from this early promise and disappointment. It follows familiar lines of current (or rather last year's - or even the year before's) Britpop. I'd say it is manna to the ears of fans of this type of indy opiate. Equallysadly, the artwork appears to be a few years out of date. There's even a hidden track which is a silly concept that should have died of natural causes long before now.
As I say, it's probably just what fans of this sort of stuff are crying out for. To anyone looking for more exciting or original fodder to feed their heads, I suggest they look elsewhere.
