When It Falls by Zero 7 - Record Review Corner #2


Warm Sound

So deliberately disorienting only to give you a gentle landing zone
I can see recording this and listening back and changing the name to its essence
Warm Sound

The sun is a bright circle
I am so happy that KBTB introduced me to a couple of songs on this record
Because the album is pretty satisfying

Warm sound
Falling slowly
Take the time away from me
Warm sound
Feeling no pain
Taking the time away from me

Warm Sound indeed
This is like audio heroin

Keyboard journey
Not a typing keyboard
The musical instrument
Sound machine with piano keys

The black & white ones



Lost in cheap delirium

So well constructed
Builds like a beautiful city
Again deliberate
I don’t even know who is making this record
I should probably check that out



Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker
Now it all makes sense
“They began as studio engineers”
Knew they could do it better
Bravo Zero 7
Hire the sounds you need <–––––– !
You don’t need to limit yourself by your maximum abilities

“…they were asked by Radiohead to remix the song "Climbing Up the Walls””
Engineers who know how to vibe

No hurry at all but sensible to not outstay the welcome


Passing By

Ohhhhh shiiiiiit
So this is European downtempo
The thickness
The thoughtfulness

Who am I to make a judgement of your life?
I'm only passing by, passing by

All our music is phrasing and tempo
All are everything is headphones & cocoa

Just a wow track: Wow


Over Our Heads

I’m finally getting it
I’m so slow
Third inning stretch
Sucker for sleigh bells forever
Nicely produced

I mean, I *get* it, man

Gorgeous sound forest
Slow fade
Dave Gary would approve


When It Falls

Logically speaking this is “the space between”
Clearly the sonic/tonal/experiential midpoint
A reset for those in need
A restore for those in need
Head food for the brain chemicals


The Space Between

This mix now

Now that you're wiser
Surely you've learned to read it

Ride cymbal tutorial

How many times can I mention, “deliberate”
Producing + engineering + performance 


Speed Dial NO.2

I wish I weren’t so lyric blind
But I process most lyrics as sounds fitting into the mix

The music theory

This one is heavy lyrically

Your shoulders in my pocket
My shoulders in your pocket

Not fooling around

Minor chords of torture


Look Up

Much needed instrumental

1970’s movie harmonica
Of journeys and immersion
Out west or urban


In Time


From the before times of 2004 - Ugh, before times - Remember those?


Morning Song

So glad I own this on vinyl

Let it play

“When in doubt, ride it out.”

–RP Dub
s <–––––– ! Welcome to the best decade of your life

This is a really enjoyable album

Play it enough to know it

Play it when you make the things

Play it when you have the moods

Play it over and over

The end
