Review

The strong acoustic elements of this album are reminiscent of indie bands such as The Lightning Seeds or James and while this incorporating of a wider range of styles aids the music in standing out from the synthpop hordes it is then given more guts by a very modern rhythmic approach with Ross Carter's melodic vocal style providing the perfect accompaniment throughout, from the easy-going opener "It's Not Enough" (which, along with "Are We The Reason?" features backing vocals from Alexys B), the bustling "The Soul Within" or the infectious "I Never Thought I'd See You Cry".

For me, the highlights come in the shape of the harder-edged instrumentals "Pushing" & "Nowhere", both of which benefit from some fine musicianship, while the powerfully majestic chorus that graces "Somewhere" provides another memorable moment. And just to make sure the album doesn't miss out on that all-important club action are the three 'club mixes' at the end, all of which (by the band's own Glen Wisbey with help from Reza Udhin) make the most of the band's catchy style & benefit from the extra dynamic boost.
