A BAND OF BEES - Octopus

bees-octopus.jpgWhile never receiving the avalanche of ink that accompany so many of their British contemporaries, The Bees (or A Band Of Bees as they are legally known in North America) continue to make some of the best pop records in that country. Considering their shameless genre-hopping and 60s/70s faithful production style, maybe they're just too much of a chameleon to be pinned down. Like its eight-armed namesake, this album has its hands everywhere at once: pop, soul, reggae, folk, country, you name it. Its saving grace is that no matter what shape it takes, the melody remains primary.
