The British duo Lamb consists of singer and producer Andy Barlow and Louise Rhodes was founded in 1994 in Manchester. As the first combined Lamb vocals with jungle and drum 'n' bass rhythms, like for example Kosheen. The first album and the singles Cotton Wool and Lamb Gorecki were innovative and very successful, despite the fact that the songs by the atmospheric arrangement and on accelerating drum machine were not always accessible. On Fear Of Fours (1999) put Lamb this concept, although with slightly less commercial impact. The more success there was on stage, where Lamb to see regularly. With a pause of three years appears the album What Sound that a number of hit environment numbers (What Sound, Sweet and Gabriel). Which in addition to notice is that the time of intense break beats and a-rhythmic drum computers is over. Instead you hear beautiful Sung and atmospheric songs in quiet, downtempo drum 'n' bass rhythms are packed. The music of Lamb is somewhat shifted from the dance floor to the living room in a genre that anno 2001 does not (more) so striking. That makes What Sound to a nice but not really remarkable album.

Only a few bands have successfully merged experimentalism and emotionalism—but Lamb is definitely one of them. WHAT SOUND is a further maturation in their sound, from the trip-hop leanings of their first album to the jazzy elements in FEAR OF FOURS, though you can hints of both albums here. The title track is almost a revision of their track “Gorecki,” but with glitchy elements that complement the strings and Louise Rhodes’ inimitable vocals. “One” harkens back to their trip-hop days, but is much more controlled, even introducing some distorted hiss into the proceedings. “Sweet” is more funk-oriented, and “Small” is digital blippery and delicate lyrics. But the more emotional tracks are the ones that stick. “I Cry” is a modern torch song, if I’ve ever heard one. “Heaven” is pure gossamer, and “Gabriel” is infused with so much power that it threatens to melt your speakers. The extra tracks to this U.S. release give a slightly different take, like MJ Cole’s two-step house mix of “Gabriel,” which sets the strings uneasily against the beats –- but Nellee Hooper’s version is much more respectful. The sleazy lounge-jazz of “Night Has a Thousand Eyes” hints at their second album, and “Blessing in Disguise” takes the album out on a quiet piano track. Still stunning after all these years.
