4.0 out of 5 stars Warm, Not Warmed-Over July 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
"When It Falls" is the second album from North London's Sam Hardaker and Henry Binns. The duo achieved worldwide success with their 2001 debut, "Simple Things," and continue their clever synthesis of jazz, downtempo electronica, and folk-pop on this new collection. The band's sound brings up warm memories for those who spent part of their childhood in the 70s. When guest vocalist Tina Dico croons the lyrics to the outstanding track "Home," one is reminded of family car journeys accompanied by the easygoing sound of AM pop radio; in that aspect, it's not unlike Joni Mitchell's seminal work "Hejira." "Somersault," with vocals by returning singer Sia Furler, continues the theme of domestic comfort, extolling the virtues of a lover who "feels like home." The addition of subtle string orchestration and well-placed acoustic guitar help ensure "When It Falls" remains a truly organic listening experience from beginning to end. Unlike many other artists in the downtempo category, Zero 7 seems to understand that slower beats and technological tricks are no replacement for emotional warmth.

4.0 out of 5 stars relax June 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
Before 9/11 there was all this chill out/make out music being made like Supreme Beings of Leisure, Morcheeba, and even Saint Etienne. Zero 7 were among the ranks. Before Norah Jones and Dido there was music for middle age spinsters and pot smokers that was not interested in pushing the envelope (i.e. The Prodigy "Smack My Bitch Up"). It was soft sounds for relaxing after all that money being made on Wall Street. I guess Air's Moon Safari was the key album of the movement if there ever was one. Zero 7 had some cool videos and animation (this was before 1 Giant Step too). Female vocals oozed out of the speakers like they had just been bonked for the past few days and they were all right with it. Zero 7 played a lot of live dates. That influenced the new record, which expands then sound, and have more steady builds. This is almost like bossanova jazz. Wasn't Bebel Gilberto involved here? We have heard these moods before. It's three years later and people still need to unwind, take E, and relaxed with adult music. It's time to make children. No matter that the country's bankrupt and the environment is depleted. Let's all sit back and let Bin Laden rule the planet for a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! April 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
Yes that's how I describe this album, I have been recently introduced to chill out , And I was recommended to check out Zero 7 , so I went and I got "Simple things" and "When It Falls" at the same time, I really think that "Simple Things" is an excellent effort and has some really outstanding tracks like " The Waiting Line","Destiny", "I Have Seen " ,"Red Dust" among others but in my opinion "When It Falls" is just simply Irresistibly their best work so far!,there are probably about 3 tracks (out of 11) which I did not care much but the rest is just Electronic Downtempo ear candy, the lovely voices of Sia Furler and Sophie Barker shine (as they did on Simple Things) again on delicious tracks like "Somersault", "In time", "Speed dial No 2" and my favorite track on the Album "Passing By" , Mozes also delivers a powerful performance on the excellent "Over Our Heads".
I am an avid music collector buying (different types of music) at least 5 or 6 CDs every month and so far this year this has been one of the nicest surprises (or discoveries) along with Air's new "Talkie Walkie" which is also an excellent album I highly recommend. To wrap this up, do not hesitate, if you are courious enough and have come this far, GO Get It , there is some really Beautiful music waiting for you to enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Complicated, but beautiful! April 21 2004
By Eelco
Format:Audio CD
Comparing "When It Falls" with "Simple Things" appears to be inevitable, which is making this effort from London-based duo Binns and Hardaker sound like "Complicated Things". I gave it a try anyway.
Yes, I was blown away by the classy, soulful "Simple Things" as well, and no, I couldn't wait to hear more from Zero 7 either. So as far as that goes, I'm not any different from other reviewers. I got the new album about a month ago and find my self just not being able to stop listening ever since.
I have read various reviews on Amazon and other websites, and in general it seems people are somewhat dissapointed. I agree that Zero did not overclass their first effort. Can you blaim them? "Simple Things" as a whole was nearly perfect. "When It Falls" is only just great. But a previous reviewer who comes to the pessimistic conclusion that downtempo is dying, obviously didn't give this follow-up a clear listen. Zero 7 has definitely not fallen flat, they have grown and blessed us with yet another beautifully produced masterpiece.
What strikes me most at the start of this album is that songs such as "Warm Sound", "Home" and "Somersault" are built up in a very interesting way and brought to a climax that will make you reach for your rewind-button right away. Have patience though, because there is more...The instrumental tracks "When It Falls"(relaxing and dreamadelic) and "Look Up"(uptempo and uplifting) are certainly not inferior to the ones on the previous album. "In Time" is a country-like song I didn't like at first, but it has grown on me and has become yet another favorite. In fact I could describe every song here, but I think I already made clear that they are all worth listening to.
Last weekend I saw Zero 7 in concert in Paradiso in Amsterdam.

4.0 out of 5 stars pleasant and comfortable
There's plenty to like about this CD if you liked their first CD. It is a bit more down-beat than the first one but that isn't a negative. Read more
