4 stars 2013 brings the fifth album of this very talented British band and the wait of the fans for this new opus,definitelly worth it!It's another excellent album for THIEVES KITCHEN,and shows the natural progression of the band!TK definitelly has it's own style-Amy's voice is pure and trully heavenly on this album and all the musical ensemble is very solid and precise in it's musical message!What I really like and admire at TK is the jazzy approach and feeling when we listen Amy's voice-definitelly the big ace in the hands of the band,its trademark in fact!A very beautiful voice which slowly melts,flowing between the instruments and offers the listeners an excellent audition and brings them in a very special mood!The presence of the piano is another wonderful aspect of aTK's music and fits perfectly good in the mix of the musical ideas exposed !The compositions are quite long-only a track is under 7 minutes-the instrumental part of all songs is trully significant-what I miss a little-is the presence of more guitar solos in every track -only in the final song of the album-the brilliant composition OF SPARKS AND SPIRES -we can admire the guitar wizardry of Phil Mercy in a very attractive and spectacular guitar solo!The flute is another instrument which is perfectly well included in the TK's musical alchemy-and brings a special tone and feeling to the music!The production is very good and the sound of each instrument is clear and precise-Amy's voice is very well mixed too!A wonderful album which deserves many auditions to be fully understood-clever texts too-a mention for that -and the feeling that THIEVE'S KITCHEN still has a huge potential to deliver another excellent albums in the future!4.5 stars to a very likeble and solid eclectic prog album- a musical delicacy!
