Lover, The Lord Has Left Us… – The Sound of Animals Fighting

This, the supergroups first full length was somewhat of an ordeal for myself. I bought it expecting something along the lines of their first effort – the Tiger and the Duke EP. What i got was completely the opposite. Looking back i must have been completely ignorant – i didn’t even give this record a solid chance – i threw it at the back of my collection vowing that it was no more than a drinks coaster to me. So about a year later a came back to it, and i’m glad i did because it is quite an acoomplished album.

This is a record that is built on collaboration and guest efforts which stretch far and wide – it is a very ubiquitous and demanding listen, but once you let yourself go and fall into it’s trap you won’t look back. The music holds beauty and groove liek no other, and commands the listener to expect more from each track. My Horse Must Lose is a slow groover which is irresistably chilled while the heavy bass/electronica of Horses in the Sky is complemented beutifully with a rocking chorus. The albums highest point however is the Heretic – a song that is full of beauty and balladry that will have you coming back again and again.
