    Irrespective of genre or decade, 'Rispah' is an astonishing tsunami of emotion which above all, makes you feel alive.

    London band and industry stalwarts likely had something different planned out for the followup to their Mercury-nominated self-titled 2009 debut, but as it always does, life interfered. During the recording process, singer/guitarist Dave Okumu's mother passed away, and the Kenyan lamentations that women sang during the funeral inform much of the mood here melancholy after the instrumental "A Particle of Love", joyous as the album's outro during "Protection." This is a much more introspective and haunted effort, seamlessly sequenced, and smoldering with the band's incredibly tight chemistry. The more upbeat songs from the debut are missed, but they are still capable of keeping true to their sound while pushing things forward. A sensational album that definitely needs to be more widely heard. Full Review »
