Product Description & Reviews

Lamb, the most alluring and enigmatic acts of today who have quietly soundtracked the past ten years, present their greatest hits in the form of 'Best Kept Secrets'. Since their inception in 1994, Lamb's Lou Rhodes and Andy Barlow have never been ones to let their musical landscape stagnate, they have resolutely pushed the envelope into ever more daring and evocative strata. Neither willfully hi-brow nor transparently commercial, Lamb's music has always been about perpetuating a melodic edge whilst maintaining their commitment to keeping the music interesting. And here's the startling beautiful results. With four albums in ten years, Lamb have made their mark in very much their own terms. Proof, if ever was needed, that you've always got to watch the quiet ones. Best Kept Secrets, a collection of songs from Lamb's first four records, is a reminder of how exhilarating and shockingly modern their music can be. It's also a crash course on the band's precarious balancing act. When they're in sync, the somber torch singing of Louise Rhodes and the twisted proto-jungle of producer Andrew Barlow make for a delicious combination. The band's self-titled debut trumped contemporaries like Portishead, who built songs around the vocals, while Barlow and Rhodes worked on playing up their stylistic contrasts. It's a tough dynamic to maintain though, as later records like Fear of Fours and especially 2003's Between Darkness and Wonder don't quite get the formula right. Laid out in chronological order, Secrets is just like the band's career to this point: It starts off great, but tails off at the end. This being a "best of," however, you notice it less. "B Line" off Fours, for instance, sounds just fine coming after new classics like "Cotton Wool," and even though tracks like "Angelica" are almost painfully safe, they still kick up a nice ruckus. --Matthew Cooke
