Lamb's second album, FEAR OF FOURS, shows them more focused, with a tighter grip on song structure. The rhythms, again, are breathtaking. The title, FEAR OF FOURS, comes from their aversion of the all-too-common 4/4 time signature found in most music today. So they craft tracks around less commonly used signatures, like the crazed 6/8 double bass jazz of "B Line." They don't abandon it altogether, however; "All In Your Hands" slithers with sinewy strength. Again, their range is noteworthy: right after the sultry "Bonfire" comes the frenetic and multi-faceted "Ear Parcel." It's quite a package! "Here" brings back the double bass for another workout; "Fly" has some mellow breaks; and "Alien" is dense and paranoid. Another stunner from Lamb. No need to fear them at all.
