Imogen - Whiplash

The first release from this label that I havenít really felt in a long while. Whatís wrong here? Itís hard to say exactly: the beatís plodding, the melodies are nice but donít really hook into your brain, but I think itís more accurate to say that this release has too much going on too be tracky and not enough going on to really entice listeners to give it a go on their headphonesóa difficult middle ground. The title track is the one to keep, if youíre going to be searching this one out via digital means.
