It's a shame that Aereogramme had to tone down the aggressive side of their music to accommodate Craig's restrictions due to his throat infection, but in the end it doesn't matter. They created a gorgeous album replete with pulsating strings, pianos and shimmering acoustic melodies. For a relatively unplanned shift it all seems so natural.
It's strange that something as tragic as vocalist Craig B's throat infection created something so beautiful. With his inability to sing his heavier vocals, stuck to his clean, high pitched singing, Aereogramme needed to find a way to accomodate. They did so by creating an album full of beautiful strings, piano, and clean guitar that rises and falls as if they've been utilizing this formula for years. The precision by which Aereogramme made this album is stellar and it makes for one of the best albums of 2007 thus far.
