Out of print in the U.S.! 1997 debut by the Electronica duo who managed to successfully combine the sonic intensity of Drum 'N' Bass with the atmospheric torch-like melodies of bands like Portishead. 10 tracks including 'Lusty', 'Cottonwool' and 'God Bless'. Universal.
"An appreciation of contradiction", as described within the sleeve notes of Lamb's eponymously titled debut album, acts as the first clue to content. Andy Barlow's competent production embraces the best elements of a number of genres, sounding full even in the more stripped down pieces while working with as opposed to crowding out Louise Rhodes' claustrophobic songwriting. The music itself makes for a fascinating hybrid. The dubbed analogues of "Trans Fatty Acid" grate against the complex beats and pensive lyrics of "Cotton Wool". Whereas the haunting vocals of "Feela," which absorb a simple piano movement with washes of reverbed feedback, kept in check by brooding strings. A chance encounter in a Manchester studio lead to a stunning debut...wintry vocals backed with all that is good about drum and bass. --Kingsley Marshall
Look, this is not what people make it out to be. Unfortunately I was duped into buying this waste of space on a cd shelf. Read morePublished on Dec 16 2003

I first heard about Lamb from my ex... Anyways this cd is so good, it drove me to start djing myself.
Recommended with a capital R!
Stark, haunting & dark. Best tracks for drum & bass lovers are "Lusty" and "Trans Fatty Acid," both holding up marvelously under repeated listenings. Read morePublished on June 2 2003

Lamb's cds (both Lamb and Fear of Fours) are amazingly great albums. I saw Lamb during their 2001 tour and the band is actually better in concert then on their cd. Read morePublished on May 30 2003
After hearing the sublime tune Gorecki, I ran straight out to buy this album. I've been a fan of trip-hop for quite a while, and looked forward to listening to this whole debut. Read morePublished on Jan. 23 2003 by Carolyn Davis
This music isn't good. I'm not saying that beacuse it's strange; I dig stuff a lot stranger. I'm not saying it because I don't like the genre; I like Portishead and Goldfrapp. Read morePublished on Oct. 27 2002 by RaGS
Lamb really took me by surprize. Apparently released in 1996, this recording is both inventive, entertaining, thought provoking and intellengent! Read morePublished on Sept. 22 2002 by Carl Johnson
