Editorial Reviews

Return To The Ugly Side is the follow up to their debut Ugly Side Of Love. Whilst maintaining their chopped up sound - a unique combination of 60's pop-psych and hip-hop with a twist - Return To The Ugly Side sees a more cohesive, grown up Malachai in all their fervent duality; tunes/beats, past/present, dread/hope, ugly/beautiful... With Return To The Ugly Side, Malachai have made another classic.

OK sorry for the first review I did on this album. I listened to it 3 times and I just couldn't quite get into it much.
I was so obsessed with their first album "Ugly Side Of Love" that when I heard this 2nd effort which was much more toned down, slower, and softer at times that I just was not having it. I put it away, disappointed & hoped like hell that their next album would be more like the first.

Well guess what, I found their 3rd album recently & was so excited - their original sound was back!!
I decided that I would pull out this album again & give it another shot. Still doesn't hold up to the other two albums "IMO" but I think I just wasn't giving it credit & enjoying it for what it was. It is actually pretty good (I was just expecting the harder/faster paced, hook laden riffs)- this album was obviously meant to be slowed down a bit but it still contains the great musicianship, just toned down a bit.

This album is decent & has some great moments but I recommend the 1st & 3rd albums before this one. I gave it another star on the rating now that my opinion has changed a bit. These guys are great at what they do & all their work deserves more recognition.

Not as good as the first, but not many albums are. Love the album. "My Ambulance" is amazing

**Review originally appeared at https://midnighttosix.wordpress.com

Malachai’s The Ugly Side Of Love was perhaps the most exciting debut album of 2010. The Bristol duo’s marriage of late-60’s UK psych with trip-hop was as inspired as it was breathtakingly original. Less than a year later they’ve returned with their follow-up, Return To The Ugly Side, which references the title of their debut but trades in much of that album’s warm 1960’s stylings (both sampled and performed live) for a colder and harsher sound that recalls Portishead (whose Geoff Barrow has collaborated with Malachai in the past), and other far less savory 1990’s electronica/trip-hop types. There’s nothing terribly wrong with the album as a whole, and its fourteen songs breeze by in a very tidy thirty-five minutes. However, the musical tracks are lacking a certain spark, and can’t compete with the high standard that Malachai set for themselves with under-appreciated songs like “Snowflake” and “Shitkickers”. Worse, Malachai take some ill-advised musical detours into areas best left alone, such as the drum and bass experiment of “(My) Ambulance” and the Prodigy-esque “Mid Antartica (Wearin’ Sandals), which make you wonder if the ship isn’t starting to head off course.
