Editorial Reviews

Glass Animals vocalist and songwriter David Bayley draws influence for both music and artwork from his involvement in the world of medicine and neuroscience (at just 23 yrs old, he has studied both) creating a sound with its roots spread between the electronic and live instrumentation.

Having previously recorded all their music in an isolated, home-built studio ('The Shed'), deep in the forests of Oxfordshire, Glass Animals vocalist and production dynamo Dave Bayley moved with the band to the more urban surroundings of Paul Epworth's London studio to start work on their debut album Zaba.

Inspired by Kanye West and Charles Darwin, Nina Simone and the Velvet Underground, ZABA is a rich and textured work, a very special record indeed. With Dave producing and Epworth as A&R and mentor, the studio became their home and the band were free to record, improvise and write at their own speed, making their sound a bigger, brighter, heavier and more intense experience than ever before.

Like most others, I learned of this band through their infectious song "Gooey". I heard it play on the radio one day and it was love at first listen. I quickly google searched the band and discovered this album. I previewed a few other songs such as "Pools" and "Hazey" before I finally couldn't resist myself from buying the album. The group sounds so polished and complete. I will say that upon my first listen of this album I was somewhat disappointed though. I felt a bit cheated because I expected more of "Gooey" type songs throughout the album. I listened to the album again an hour later and many more times since and I discovered that the songs were all latching onto me like parasites. I was entranced and hooked to the textured layers and soulful vocals. Here is my track by track review of what I believe will be considered a classic soon.

1. Flip: The bass of this song comes in waves throughout the song. At first I didn't really like this one. But I began to find it more exotic and anthem worthy quickly. The vocal style in this one just sounds unique in a great way. Good intro to a true experience of an album. 9/10
2. Black Mambo: Again, first listen didn't really impress me. But that changed soon after. The vocals are so elegant yet powerful. The main riff is so chill and almost has a old school hip hop feel. I'd compare the riff and vibe of the instruments in this one to "Clint Eastwood" by Gorillaz. The vocals mirror that of Robert Plant slightly! Toward the end there is an awesome guitar section that is just sexy. This is one of my favorites. 10/10
3. Pools: The electronic jungle feel of this one is so infectious. The verses are playfully catchy. The chorus is nice and pumping. I cant help myself from singing along "I smile because I want to".

This is a really great album for laid back, deep, interesting music that you just want to chill to. Personally I find it hard to get music these days that is of this caliber in this genre. It's just a bit reminiscent of Alt-J with that trip-hop "electro" melded with good vocals and instruments but IMO this is a tad more tribal, deeper bass. I think a lot of people who aren't even into this amount of an electronic sound would like this because it is just seriously good music.

Album itself is great but it came in pretty bad shape. Skips really badly on almost every song. Almost half of Gooey isn't even audible - the whole chorus gets skipped. Fantastic record though. I'd just buy it from someone else. Amazon really dropped the ball on this one.

I love this album. It is a good mix to listen to while at work or studying. The best part about it is that you feel a sensation from the music, like the song Gooey, makes me in-vision slime or something like that.

I will start by saying that I absolutely love this album. However I gave it one star because it skips regularly throughout the album. Like many other people, I am a huge fan of the song Gooey. However, you can't even listen to this song on the vinyl because it skips so much. I ordered this vinyl twice and both items were the same exact way. Please do not waste your time. I am even more frustrated because this same exact thing happened to me when I tried to order the "Trouble Will Find Me" vinyl by The National. Considering I have only ordered 4 vinyls off of Amazon, it is now 50% of them that have been damaged.

Chill.... relaxed and a little bit funky... this is one of my favorite go tos when I want background music that doesnt overpower the atmosphere.... but doesnt get lost in it either.

Great album. I've heard lots of Glass Animal's tracks on the radio so I wanted to buy the album to support them and add their music to my collection. All the tracks are good, in my opinion. I listen to the whole album straight through. Normally I'll skip any tracks I'm not interested in, didn't happen with this CD.
