After making a career performing sweet pop music disguising acerbic lyrical sniping, with their seventh album the Beautiful South find themselves in a more uptempo and even grown-up mood than their last record. Reining in their lyrics more than previously, a move that allows them to incorporate metaphors without the funny, snarky subtexts that they often carry, the band have created their most mature album to date. The album is also notable for Norman Cook's appearance on several tracks--better known by his alter-ego of Fatboy Slim, Cook used to play bass in the South's previous incarnation as the Housemartins.
Standouts include "Closer than Most", which adds some slithering keyboards and a dose of funk to the band's oeuvre, "Baby Please Go", featuring some great vocal exchanges between Paul Heaton and Dave Hemingway, and "10,000 Feet", which pairs low-key verses with barreling musical bridges. The best track, however, is "The Mediterranean", an unassuming track evocative of a wholly unrealistic, but nonetheless crystalline vision of the body of water in question. Collectors might want to note that the UK edition of this album features three additional songs.
