release description

Lamb have finally perfected the trip hop/classical fusion they discovered." -Q Magazine

"What Sound is actually the sound of Lamb sussed and sorted and perfectly centred, hitting a flawless blend of fuck-off, baffled beats, intriguing textured ambience and lush, soulful melodicism...swoon to the sweetly minimal title track; hear how 'This Could Be Heaven' shifts back and forth between delicately insistent and havin'-it-large pushy; check the monstrous, thrillingly damaged 'Scratch Bass'; resist blubbing, if you can, during the unabashedly emotional 'Gabriel'; and soak up the thousand subtle inflections which add colour and tone everywhere. It's time - succumb to the bleat surrender." - Time Out (London)

"Lamb's third album sees them floating above such worldly concerns - almost literally. The shivering electro-folk of Gabriel is about getting it on with an angel, while Small sees singer Louise Rhodes peering down upon God's creation from on high. Lamb have finally perfected the trip hop/classical fusion they discovered." -Q Magazine

"Lamb remain the unacknowledged masters of the studio beat and brooding atmospherica. Especially here." - Uncut
