KaldThe Hedges Are Smiling And Weirdness Abounds
By Edward Blake
Well top marks for the unbe-fucking-lievabley bad title, and hey, guess what? Top marks for making the shittest album I've heard for a long while. Coming from a small Welsh town, I can only assume that Kald have never had the chance to absorb enough modern music to appreciate that their own creation sounds about 20 years out of date and the lyrics are hideously twee and righteous. The production is more confused than a rat in a maze with no cheese at the end and the songs don't so much amble as dissolve into utter pointlessness. By track seven I feel physically sick. What more information do you need?
