Reviews

 

01/01/2004 The Guardian 4*


"Food's work is always a fine balance of north European lyrical understatement, contemporary acoustic jazz and fierce abstraction. The tonal blend of Ballamy's wintry softness in this setting and Arve Henriksen's startlingly unbrasslike trumpet sound is one of the most striking aspects of a constantly refreshing band.

This is a more ambient-sounding set than the last album, a live collection that featured more free-jazzy dialogues for the horns, and which opened invitingly with Ballamy's haunting saxophone.

They haven't gone out of their way to charm doubters at the outset this time. The irresistibly racing electronic groove four tracks in, which rattles on under Henriksen's sinister hissing sounds, evaporating growls and Bitches Brew-like choral climaxes, could have been the snap-to-attention opening track.

Instead they elect to start with a long, abstract scraping and clattering of percussion and loosely slewing electronics, before the horns begin their more spacious reflections over a strange, garrulous background bustle that sounds like a flock of turkeys eating cornflakes....

Iain Ballamy is as subtly adventurous as ever ". John Fordham -
