Album: Zero 7, Yeah Ghost (Atlantic)
Sunday 06 September 2009
If Faithless are a poor man's Massive Attack, then Zero 7 truly are a band for credit crunch times.
Their fourth album expects applause just for pumping up the bpms on a handful of tracks, but all this means in practice is that their trademark stuporific downtempo fare is occasionally punctuated by wine-bar jazz, and either way it's a vehicle for pseudo-cosmic garbage such as "we were floating like particles into the night". Has anyone ever had an interesting thought while listening to a Zero 7 record? Or while making one?
