Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
I reviewed Linq’s previous album, [Fast Moving Dream] in 2006 and I remember being surprised at how rockin it was. This one is a little more bluesy.
Many of her songs on this and her previous album have a strong political message. Change the Picture most notably.
Ode to the Butterworth Boys is a nice and easy story song.
George Orwell Where Are You? is almost a dirge. A political dirge. Weirdly cool.
Linq’s is definitely a style you don’t hear every day. At least I don’t. In fact, when it was shuffling with other albums it was almost startling when a song of hers came on because it’s just soooo different. But listening to this album as a whole is the way to do it.
Different and interesting.
