This is a true album of artistic intelligence.

Contributing writers usually must either absolutely LOVE or HATE a record enough to want to share their strong feelings with the rest of the world.

Although producer Mark Brydon and singer Roisin Murphy broke up their relationship, together they made another brilliant album.

Generally speaking, one has to be highly motivated regarding a CD to take the time to compose a review for Amazon.com. Contributing writers usually must either absolutely LOVE or HATE a record enough to want to share their strong feelings with the rest of the world.
And admittedly, that is exactly why I write to you today.
Simply stated, STATUES - the fourth album by MOLOKO - immediately established itself as the BEST CD OF THE YEAR when it was released in Europe in March 2003 - a distinction that no other recording ever came close to claiming for the balance of the year.
2003 was a relatively strong year for popular music including incredible records released by MUSE, PLACEBO, OUTKAST, MASSIVE ATTACK, THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS, THE CORAL, FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE, SUPER FURRY ANIMALS, BLUR, THE ROOTS and many others. But as 2003 draws to a close, STATUES still stands head and shoulders above the rest.
I have been a fan of MOLOKO since the first time I heard one of their tunes - FUN FOR ME - on a compilation CD in 1996. MOLOKO is comprised of MARK BRYDON - who handles most of the composition, production, instrumental and arrangement duties - and the incomparable vocalist/lyricist ROISIN MURPHY. From the beginning of their recording career, MOLOKO have defied classification. They have a reputation primarily as a somewhat quirky, dance-oriented pop duo. But that is far to simple a label for this band that has always taken a very unique approach to the genre of dance/pop. From early on, their trademark sound and sophisticated recordings have always featured truly inventive songs played on REAL instruments, very meaningful lyrical content and, of course, the incredible vocals of ROISIN MURPHY.

I just get this awesome cd as a gift from one cousin of mine and im so happy , Moloko delivers in "statues" deligthfull soul and acid jazz that they have been offering in past productions but now they use electronic beats, sinthetizers , and a few artificial but delicious rithm sections, also the sound of Moloko is so british and therefore it has a natural charm very enjoyable for just a few eclectic audiences, check out "statues" only import edition is available and for this reason is a expense adquisition but it worths cent by cent , or pound by pound, should i say

It was mostly out of a sense of loyalty and nostalgia that I bought Statues. I'd felt Moloko's third album release, Things To Make And Do, was a shambolic introduction to the band for new listeners lured by dancefloor smashes Sing It Back and The Time Is Now.

Well, what a pleasant surprise, because what turned out to be their swansong may have become my favourite CD ever. The duo didn't just retread the past glories of kook classics Do You Like My Tight Sweater? and I Am Not A Doctor, but overshot them with a maturity which only bolstered their legendary status.

Roisin Murphy's voice is better here than ever. A friend of mine who dropped by when I was playing it said, "Alanis Morissette on weed", and while you can see what he means, the lyrical approach, while no less intelligent, has a charming idiosyncracy that's so far from the North American sensibility as to make comparisons pretty unhelpful.

And Mark Brydon's always inventive arrangements benefit from a more orchestral sweep than previously. When this is fused with electronica, as in the opener, Familiar Feeling (the version here having a two-minute, staccato intro that's pure anxiety) and I Want You, the effect is pure synesthesia - greater than the sum of its parts. Mind you, the strings on this album would make it worth a punt on their own.

Bouncy slices of dance-pop like 100% and Cannot Contain This helped maintain Moloko's undoubted club appeal, but it's the lyrics that'll have you poring over the insert. They've always been leftfield, to say the least, but these "Party Weirdos" can take on subjects such as obsession, lost love and disappointment as well as any torch balladeer - all with Roisin's brittle, delicately-phrased vocals wrapped deliciously around them.

Words cannot do this album justice. This time around, Moloko take you on a journey to a magical place you never want to leave. The production is superbly crafted without a second of mediocrity and Roisin has never sounded better! From start to finish the sound is warm and rich; gone are all the filler tracks from Moloko albums of the past. Songs like "Forever More" and "100%" pulsate and demand you get up and move, leaving you in a frenzy of ecstatic bliss. But the three slower tracks are just as hypnotizing: "Statues," "The Only Ones" and the 10 minute long "Over and Over" are beautifully melancholic and it comes as no surprise that Roisin sounds just as breathtaking here as she does in funkier parts of the album. In terms of lyrical content, Moloko have also grown tremendously over the years. They have managed to craft an overall upbeat album with lyrics that often straddle a darker, more pensive side. It is impossible for me to pick a favorite track because each and every one is just so great. Moloko have just been getting progressively better over the years and all the steps taken have been in the right direction. The remixes for this album are also top notch and I must add that Roisin's solo album "Sequins" is to be released this May!

Simply put, this album is absolutely amazing and I too am baffled as to why it did not take off the way it should have. It is truly sad to know that the last three Moloko albums were not even released in the US, despite "Sing It Back" being a huge success. This subsequently means no hope of ever seeing them live over here! I can only hope Moloko keep on making music because they are a hidden treasure amidst a sea of uninspired trash.
