Low, Trust [Rough Trade]

from The Times (UK), 5 October 2002

THE MINNEAPOUS trio deliver exactly the same goods time after time, and with Trust being their sixth album in eight years, the law of diminishing returns threatens. Amazingly, then, this is Low's best album, and even a slight progression from their slow, austere rock bliss. 'I Am the Lamb' and 'Tonight' have an extra soulfulness, guest vocals from Gerry Blakely of the Seventies soft-rockers America push them toward Harvest-era Neil Young on 'It's in the Drugs' and 'La La La Song' is their most hummably original yet. Long may they low.

4 stars out of 5
