BADGER’S CD OR DOWNLOAD CHOICE OF THE MONTH IS THE DEBUT STUDIO ALBUM BY BRITISH/AUSTRALIAN ELECTRONICA TRIO COMMUNION.

Years and Years

Communion

The album not only went straight into the chart at number one, but also outsold the rest of the top 5 combined. ‘The most anticipated album of the year’ or a clever piece of marketing releasing it the same week as school leavers across the country were looking for a last minute download before the holidays?

I’d like to think it’s the former. This is one very quirky/ clever/ original album.

There’s Reggae, then Electronic and as they started out as an acoustic 5 piece they throw some of that in too. The result for this now trio is just one of those albums that changes direction time after time, like when you spot a truly great cover band at a mates wedding and get their number for someone elses. I just know these guys will be bringing something to the party for a long time to come.

There’s not much originality to the tunes but from soft soul to utter rock there’s a great familiarity to this album.

VERDICT 8/10
