Somersault, An Essential Ingrediant For A Summer To Remember

Chicane isnt just about music, its about how that music makes you feel, its a soundtrack to life itself. After last years success with Stoned In Love featuring the un-mistakable voice of Tom Jones, Chicane mastermind Nick Bracegirldle has produced what only promises to be the best album of British music for as long as I can remember. Somersault contains songs with meaning, music we can all relate to. From 'Nothing' To 'Come Tomorrow' If your getting ready for a night out on the town or just want to be by yourself, this album is guarenteed to give you the 'Time Of Your Life'.

Come Tomorrow

what a amazing comeback album, stoned in love kicks off a different but interesting sound by Chicane. The stand out track for me is Come Tomorrow, a fantastic vocal hopefully a single!

Sketchy to say the very least....

Since '96, when Offshore was released and on hearing Far From the Maddening Crowd's I have been a fan of Chicane. I loved the way it blended emotional moments of 'chill' with the 4X4 and how it 'sound-scaped' the tracks from the beginning to end of the album. 2000's Behind the Sun, was not as sublime, but it was in the same generic, and gave us some other options to consider, such as guitars, vocals and this is where I believe it started to go wrong; Bryan Adams. I think it was more of direction than anything else, being in the top of the charts and having a moment of fame, with someone famous, maybe it led Nick Bracegirdle to make the decision to change lanes and pursue that market? For me, it became clear that Chicane had changed. When in 2003 Easy to Assemble was leaked on the internet, it was clear listening to that album, that the direction had changed. It also sounded to me, that Nick was no longer 100% sure about which direction he should take. The album sounded jaded and child like in places. It had its moments though, and was more in the league of his earlier two pieces of work than this new album "Somersault". First off is 'Stoned in Love, feat. Tom Jones' on vox. There's nothing good I can say about this. Its just bad. Euro cheese trying to save itself by hiring someone famous to sing on it. Next up is 'Always'. I am speechless. It is essentially a remix of a track by Bent, also called 'Always' from 2000. Its someone else's tune, that's all it is. Don;t even bother to try and justify this one. Weak is not the word. Next up is 'Come Tomorrow'. Starts with a break from Exit Planet Dust also used on Behind the Sun and although contains vox its obvious that they were listening to Hybrid's "Until Tomorrow" when they recorded it. Heard it all before. Then we have 'Nothing'. Again a vocal track. Nowt amazing but I enjoyed this one as it didnt try to hard, although there was till something amiss for me. This is followed by 'Arizona', from Easy 2 Assemble. Strange choice, simply as its a soundtrack style track and should or would have been great to hear this at the start, as a nice intro and a builder. 'Spirit' again from E2A, nice little tune, built around a break and a chord played in Absynth. Slightly wet vocals, but nothing offensive. Next up is 'Turning Corners'... Yawn... vox are awful, but the chorus breaks it open nicely. Really nothing special. 'Far Away from You', I had to google this as I thought it sounded like the lead singer from a band called Switchfoot, and I mean really sounds like. I enjoyed this, and think that this is the best of the new vocal tracks. Number 9 is 'Way I'm Feeling'. Dance by numbers really, again, dull, dull, dull. And finally, the hi-light of the album for me as it shows emotion and a sense of simplicity is 'Time of your life'. I love Chicane when its like this. Just pads, ethereal piano, again, very 'soundtrack' feeling to it. I wish, just wish he had started the album with this, and just let it build. At nearly 3 minutes long, its to short to redeem this album for me I'm afraid. Maybe Chicane has just gone in a different direction and Im not feeling it. But this really is dis-jointed. You have two tracks that are four years old, cobbled in with a handful of new vocal tracks by the same singer, Jack Starks, and they sit amongst what only can be described as 'dance by numbers' style house tunes. The vocal tunes sound as if they want to be taken more seriously, as in a 'Hybrid' John Graham styli, and the rest is weak. I think its been to long now to say that its a hiccup. The first two albums will always be in my top 20 favourites. I think I need to leave it there. I read one persons review where they commented on the production, and that some of the techniques are reminiscent of BT? Trust me people, theres no production progression on this album that wasn't heard ten years ago on 'Far From...' All in all, I'll get me coat!
