sometimes it HAS to be said.
Yeah this CD bummed me out, Simple Things, The Garden, and When It Falls went SO off. "In Time", "Destiny", "Somersault", - some of the best songs of the decade. I was so glad to not see Sia as a collaborator on this cd. Her voice can get annoying. Sophie Barker is by far the best singer they've worked with. If she came back for a couple tracks then I think that would set the formula straight.
Great review, as a GIGANTIC Zero 7 fan, I had the exact same reaction after listening to these new ones.
