Cinema


I'm a little late getting to this one, but it's a pretty solid album and I thought I'd take a crack at it.

The Cat Empire are incredibly talented musicians, and they know it too. They write amazing songs and have their own signature style. I could only imagine it can be difficult to achieve that without a guitar player. But honestly, you can't even tell. They blend everything together so well it's like peanut butter with jelly. (Please, excuse the cliche.)

This album is no different. Though there are significantly less horns than their first couple albums they still keep with the great jazz/reggae fusion and driving beats that can really get you moving.

Overall:
4/5

See songs:
Waiting, Feeling's Gone 
and All Hell (has a kickass keyboard solo)

Also (followers), if you couldn't tell I'm mostly reviewing albums I like before I get into other stuff. I haven't got too many followers yet so I hope this is to your liking BUT if you'd like to recommend something I'd be happy to check it out. I'm always looking for some new music for my library!
