"Inside" by Curfew (Electronic artist from the United Kingdom)

"Inside" is an ambient, chill-out electronic album from the UK band Curfew. Their world sound makes them a musical cross between The Gotan Project, Massive Attack, and The Prodigy. One could say the electronic sounds lean more towards The Prodigy and the ambient more toward Massive Attack. Curfew is comprised of four vocalists, three female and one male, creating an beautiful vocal sound overall. "Inside" is well-produced and allows maximum listening pleasure by creating a relaxing, mood-setting sound. When pronounced, the lyrics are often fashioned as love songs and display how the songwriter feels "Inside." On "Together We Can (Let Go)," a female vocalist beautifully sings, "If you're too afraid to show your feelings/Too afraid to speak your mind/Don't expect love." Similarly, the title track sings about being helplessly in love: "Why are you so fascinating/I can't help but give you much too much attention/Much too much of everything." "Dear Sleep" closes things out with a departure from female vocals and love songs into an eerie male electronic voice similar to Radiohead's "Fitter Happier." "Inside" is a relaxing, introspective album for anyone looking for a nice mixture of electronic, ambient, and world music.
