I think this is the first time I've ever bought a CD on the day it was released.
Both CDs rock. No big surprises on 100th Window after Mezzanine, but it's different. I'm having a hard time placing exactly how; it's not the same old stuff, but more of a logical progression from there. It's a little more personal; Sinead O'Connor provides vocals for a couple of tracks, and there's a lot more soul to this one than some of MA's previous work.
It's essentially a Robert Del Naja solo CD -- the other two thirds of Massive Attack having left the group after Mezzanine -- and that might have led to a bit more adventurousness this time around.
Other People's Songs is all surprise, and a buy for fans of the band and aficionados of fine cheese. The title is accurate, and you too can hear Erasure cover:
- Solsbury Hill
- When Will I see You Again
- Can't Help Falling In Love
- Video Killed The Radio Star
- ...and more!
