There are two songs on this album, which you'll be able to listen to, even after some weeks have passed and you played it every day: - Lusty (of course) and - Gorecki
The other songs are poor, because you just can't listen to this very weak beat, even though the lyrics sung with a really beautiful voice will make you listen to the tracks in the first days.
If you have enough money and you are willing to buy a whole album because of one or two good tracks, I recommend "Lamb", but, as for "poor" students like myself, I wouldn't (especially the CD-version, vinyl rules).

Lou is an OK singer, for a pop music group, I suppose, but her voice is nowhere even close to the standard that the hype makes out. Sheesh, guys, the way people fawn over Lamb, you'd think that she was the next Yvonne Kenny or something.
I reckon if it wasn't for their track "Gorecki", then these guys would never have ever been noticed, and rightly so, IMNSHO. And the only reason they were able to make that track is by hitching a ride on the name and work of a real musician, i.e. the real Henryk Gorecki.

There are lots of good things about this disc: nice groves, hipster vocals reminiscent of Bjork, cool sounds, some deep bass. Despite all it has going for it, at the end of the day Lamb just doesn't deliver the goods. The sound ideas and solid execution need some sizzle to seal the deal. It just isn't there. In this genre, I'll stick with Portishead and Bjork. (Really rates 2.5 stars, but I'm forced to choose between 2 and 3.)

After hearing a Lamb song on a Cafe del Mar compilation, I logged right on and bought the self titled CD. Ouch! Impulse buying strikes out again. There is nothing on this CD to set it apart from anything. It is a mediocre blend of many popular styles without bowing to any. The best word I have is- MUNDANE. Absoutely safe and devoid of talent or adventure. ... It turns out that the song I had heard was a remix.

Lamb basically jumps on the trip hop band wagon, their niche being the use of drum and bass.Basically it's a weak drum and bass excusion with a poor mans Bjork on vocals. Tunes lack melody and range from the dull to the boring. I'm sure it's fashionable to like this band, but don't belive the hype -save your money for a massive attack or a morecheeba album.

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. I'm just saying it because this music has nothing too it. There are good moments, but the songs here lack direction. Some genres can get away with that. This one can't.

This CD has a couple tracks that are totally amazing. The rest are so bad that it almost ruins the experience.

Some drum and bass pieces are OK, but is too noisy and dissarmonic
