Selling a CD with mp3 files as if they were PCM files is cheating.this label should pay a fine for it.

On previous albums, the Funky Lowlives have explored Latin beats, R&B downtempo, and funky breaks. On SOMEWHERE ELSE IS HERE, they go in a new direction altogether: folk rock. "Sail into the Sun" and "Float Through Stars" have a hazy hippie vibe that evokes verdant fields of daisies. "You Have to Come With Me" has a sense of spacious grandeur to it, while "Time Traveller Man" has an ineffable air of melancholy. There's also a sense of schizophrenia on here as well -- as much as they embrace their new folk leanings, they can't totally escape from their earlier works. The Latin influence on "Another Place is unmistakable, while the vibe-heavy "'Til I Left the Music" sits uneasily with the album as a whole. But "Time To Let You Go," one of my favorite tracks, they merge a simple acoustic guitar with a clicky rhythm and some soaring strings -- a blending of styles that works beautifully.
