Five albums into their career, Catherine Wheel are becoming an exceptional band. Two strong CD's followed by the dismal Happy Days at least proved the guys have some diversity.
But this - this is the stuff. Produced by mental-meister Bob Ezrin, Adam & Eve is a buffet of sound. More textured than previous works, it will probably open the ears of an entirely new crowd. Acoustic guitars, harmony vocals and a terrific grasp on arrangement make this a joy to listen to, "Future Boy" in particular.
A low point is the sometimes bizarre mix; deep and muddy in one spot, bright and sharp in another; but I'm nitpicking. While Chrome remains their best work, Adam & Eve is still pretty awesome.
