Every new Lamb album is like a gift from God, which makes us forget the jumble of musical plastic that surrounds us. So it was also a blessing that Lou Rhodes and Andy Barlow found together again in 2009 after a long Lamb break, in which each of them did his own thing, and two years later released a new album with "5", which once again took the electronic music world out of its hinges with warm sounds and a generous symbiosis. Now "Backspace Unwind", album number six, comes down on us, which once again bundles the sympathetic and impressive sound cosmos of the duo into ten new songs. Even "In Binary" presents the Yin and Yang Lambscher sound philosophy with its dancefloor attitude, which gives Rhodes a song aspect with its poetry. Generally it's the gripping togetherness of pulsating electro tracks ("Backspace Unwind") and great song moments that make up the soul of the album. And the "As Satellites Go By" and "Shines Like This" that give you goose bumps are again monumental cinema in a class of their own.
