EDITORS’ NOTES

Fusing folk, orchestral pop, and lilting R&B into a tidy package, Zero 7's Simple Things is a rare, welcome case of truth in advertising. Their stripped-down arrangements have the intimacy of a scratchy '60s soul LP, and Rhodes, flute, and acoustic guitars add even more warmth. Sophie Barker and Sia Furler trade sweet close harmonies on "Destiny," and Mozez's falsetto enlivens the dreamy title track and "This World." Too sophisticated to be called easy listening, it's nevertheless deliciously easy on the ears.
