Is this their first effort without Alice? It's very typically them and I quite like it on first listen, definitely good to hear something new from them anyway.

(ps I'm convinced I must have missed a thread somewhere for this but I can't see one in recent times?)

A quick look on iTunes reveals that they released Frail and Decide last year? They went completely over my head then...! ohmy.gif

I think there's a thread for the album somewhere. Confirmed for release in August I believe.
I'm quite liking this on first listen too!

I like their style but I'm still hoping for something more experimental. So far the new album sounds the same as stuff from years ago.

a pretty monotone and unmemorable effort from them. i'm kinda disappointed. alice clearly was a big part of the duo despite ethan saying otherwise and this album proves that. however, it's still a solid 7/10 effort on first couple of listens. i'm sure some songs will grow but i doubt they will help amnesty (i) reach the 9.5-10/10 heights of the first three albums.

'kept' is a complete tune though. but i'm a sucker for accordion-esque instruments so this one was obvious.

Whilst I do still like Concrete, my general impression of everything so far is slightly lacklustre compared to the Alice days. I don't think it's just the vocals either, the production feels more basic too.

Everyone seems to be disappointed by this album though it's anything but worse than II and III. It's that the context changed - the whole witch/lo-fi genre became closer to mainstream than it was in 2010-2013 so CC don't sound as contrasting today. The media dramatizing Alice's departure added up to negative anticipation. But really, this album has quality, style and poetry.

I eventually downloaded this despite it being so expensive... and I'm liking it so far. It is different to previous material but it's not bad...
