"I was first introduced to Lamb back in 1998. This is an AMAZING cd. I only wish they had a little more recognition. Nonetheless, I absolutely cannot get enough of LAMB! It is quite rare for me to like every track on a cd, but with Lamb, I can keep the cd running without passing a song. I was more of a hip hop lover and at first I had my doubts about the cd but after hearing the first track I was hooked. Each track is amazing but my two favorites would be the haunting song GOREKI and GOD BLESS. Lamb is just something different that came in my life when music became so boring and lackluster. Their second album Fear of Fours was a little different but it holds its own. (I prefer the first cd over the second. BUY THIS CD! You will not regret it. A pointer for those reluctant buyers -at first if the music sounds a little different, keep listening with reckless abandon and then you will be HOOKED! =) If you do infact enjoy Lamb, then check out OLIVE (it's a little more calm but oh so nice) and BREAK BEATS-ULTRA OBSCENE. You won't regret it!"

"Louise Rhodes' acrobatic little-girl-lost voice and Lamb's sparse background atmospheres dare you to make the inevitable Portishead comparison. It's a mean and dirty trick, though. Scratch the surface and you'll find that Rhodes and instrumental maestro Andrew Barlow have little in common with Bristol's noir-chic contingent. LAMB carves out a strange space for the Manchester duo between the hectic breakbeat bluster of drum n' bass and the jazz-and-blues-inflected chamber folk of Joni Mitchell and John Martyn. Lamb's points of reference are strange but wonderful. Rhodes' delivery combines the traits of a torch singer, an R&B siren, and an acoustic singer/songwriter into a ravishing and complex vocal identity. The very Mitchell-esque "Zero" shivers, bare and beatific, within a minimalist arrangement of cello and electronics. Bounding basslines wrap "God Bless" in the lithe contours of jazz. Vibes serve the same purpose on the frosty "Gold," while blazing trumpet insinuations graze "Closer" and "Merge." Postmodern Classical titan Henryk Gorecki is cited and name-checked in Lamb's staggeringly beautiful extrapolation of the composer's SYMPHONY, NO. 3, OP 36. "Lusty," "Closer," and "Cotton Wool" provide the hyperkinetic drum n' bass rudiments that Fila Brazillia's superlative remix of the latter (an unlisted bonus track) inflates a thousand-fold."
LAMB Kicks Hard!

"I just got Lamb's self titled cd yesterday and boy does it kick hard. The drum N bass sound is amazingly heavy and structured on "Lusty" and "Cotton Wool". The latter is a perfect display of contrast, yin and yang, muscular drum n bass against beautiful, silky vocals by Rhodes. At first "Cotton Wool" was a bit jolting but sure is interesting. "Zero", "Closer" and "Gold" are smoothe songs with a catchy grooves, especially "Gold". Lamb is definitly not for less adventurous listeners of mainstream music though. I highly recommended Lamb for any trip-hop and jungle fans of Portishead, Bjork, Roni Size and Goldie. An intriguing debut indeed."
