'As Satellites Go By' - piano version of new Lamb song for new album 'Backspace Unwind'

Biography

In any relationship, difference is the dynamic that makes magic happen. In musical partnerships, it’s often the crucial friction that makes creative sparks fly but, a fraction too much friction, and everything’s likely to go up in smoke.

Lou Rhodes and Andy Barlow understand difference more than most. They’re the first to admit that when they got together their ... Read more in Amazon's lamb Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Out of print in the U.S.! 1997 debut by the Electronica duo who managed to successfully combine the sonic intensity of Drum 'N' Bass with the atmospheric torch-like melodies of bands like Portishead. 10 tracks including 'Lusty', 'Cottonwool' and 'God Bless'. Universal.

Amazon.com

Goldie meets a caffeine-fueled Portishead on the full-length debut from a much-buzzed Manchester duo. Louise Rhodes provides the Bjork-like vocals, Andrew Barlow the complex drum & bass underpinnings. --Jeff Bateman

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking July 9, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Let me start off by saying that Lamb is the best band EVER. Out of the 2,000+ cd's that I own, this one is STILL the most frequently played, and I have had it for three years. Lamb is a complete anomaly. This band offers the interesting combination of Louise Rhodes deeply introspective and tangible vocals, with the choppy percussion and innovative programming of Andy Barlow. You might think that this combination would yield complete sonic chaos, but it does quite the opposite. The marriage of Lou's dreamy vocals to Andy's complex compositions takes the listener on a spiritual journey. The cd opens with "Lusty", which is a very intriguing track. "Lusty" features sparse melodic stabs, a hard percussive backing, and Louise cooing "only you can soothe me, come cool me down..." With that, Louise perfectly conveys the heart and soul of a person in love. And love really IS the theme of this album. "God Bless" features jazzy basslines, seductive beats, and orchestral instruments. It is quite beautiful. "Cottonwool" is perhaps the most breathtaking song I have ever heard. The song is made up of various loops and breakbeats combined with dreamy atmospheric sounds. The effect is eerily beautiful. This coupled with Louise's incredibly profound and soulful lyrics makes "Cottonwool" one of Lamb's best songs. "Transfatty Acid" features weird distortion (it sounds like Lou is singing through a can) and a strange buzzing/electricity type aura. This song makes you feel like you are in another world. "Transfatty Acid" is extremely innovative and the musical effect is mindnumbing. "Zero" is sweet and mellow. It features acoustic guitar and strings and the effect is very powerful. Lou's singing is especially good on this track. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars LAMB Kicks Hard! January 30, 2001
By Math 27
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I just got Lamb's self titled cd yesterday and boy does it kick hard. The drum N bass sound is amazingly heavy and structured on "Lusty" and "Cotton Wool". The latter is a perfect display of contrast, yin and yang, muscular drum n bass against beautiful, silky vocals by Rhodes. At first "Cotton Wool" was a bit jolting but sure is interesting. "Zero", "Closer" and "Gold" are smoothe songs with a catchy grooves, especially "Gold".
Lamb is definitly not for less adventurous listeners of mainstream music though.
I highly recommended Lamb for any trip-hop and jungle fans of Portishead, Bjork, Roni Size and Goldie.
An intriguing debut indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars About time people started to appreciate! February 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I was first introduced to Lamb back in 1998. This is an AMAZING cd. I only wish they had a little more recognition. Nonetheless, I absolutely cannot get enough of LAMB! It is quite rare for me to like every track on a cd, but with Lamb, I can keep the cd running without passing a song. I was more of a hip hop lover and at first I had my doubts about the cd but after hearing the first track I was hooked. Each track is amazing but my two favorites would be the haunting song GOREKI and GOD BLESS. Lamb is just something different that came in my life when music became so boring and lackluster. Their second album Fear of Fours was a little different but it holds its own. (I prefer the first cd over the second. BUY THIS CD! You will not regret it. A pointer for those reluctant buyers -at first if the music sounds a little different, keep listening with reckless abandon and then you will be HOOKED! =) If you do infact enjoy Lamb, then check out OLIVE (it's a little more calm but oh so nice) and BREAK BEATS-ULTRA OBSCENE. You won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A true work of art! January 9, 2000
By Dennis
Format:Audio CD
I bought this cd when my dad was dying, and I was on a major Trip hop kick. When I listen to these songs they are so moving. Every time I listen to Feela I feel like I'm going to cry. All the songs on this cd are simply amazing, whether they be loud and fun, downtempo and sexy, or amazing ballads that take you in to some story of love. This has to be one of my favorite cds that I own, and I own over 200. Buy this album and be prepared for an experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth Buying April 26, 1999
By MCG
Format:Audio CD
If you like electronic style music (especially jungle) you will LOVE Lamb. I have introduced all of my college friends and hometown friends to it and have gotten a 100% good response. Some of them repeatedly ask me where to get the CD or if I can make them a tape. One person's tape (the only one I made) wore out and he had to go get the CD because he listened to it too much.I have 2 CDs that Amazon.com does not have of Lamb's. 2 singles for a song called "b-line" that is not on the album. These CDs are well worth finding and buying! One of them has a really awesome video for CD-ROM, and an alternate version of Gorecki. I have been listening to this CD over and over for months and I am not sick of it yet, and I get sick of music REALLY fast.This CD is really worth buying and feel free to contact me if you have any questions about songs or whatever.

I had only learned to appreciate this album as an afterthought than when it was first released. When I had first heard it, I was used to listening to some very straight-forward 4/4 house, techno and rave-influenced tracks. But it was only when I started discovering drum & bass and break beat styles did I start to look for this release. And when I finally listened to it, and seriously absorbed it, I realized it was none of those things. It had similarities and elements to bands that would be considered trip hop, but they had some nice, unexpectedly syncopated rhythms, very, VERY jazzy progressions, and Louise Rhodes' vocals were of a different style of vocalization than I was used to. These guys are in a group all by themselves and hold themselves up well. But I'm not gonna say that they're better or worse than Portishead, Mono, Morcheeba, Girl Eats Boy or any other similar band because they're JUST that...SIMILAR.
