They've returned after a foray into mix-album land with Voices from the Dust Bowl, an album that makes all the right moves melody-wise (even packaging-wise), but lacks the tangibles to truly make an impression. King for a Day" arcs static-cling keyboard and guitar lines over an insistent, mildly funky bassline, while "600 Bliss" sighs under the sway of romantic strings and the vintage keyboard interjections every chill album since Moon Safari has felt compelled to feature.

Fragile is the fourth studio album by English progressive rock band Yes, released in November 1971 by Atlantic Records. Following the success of their tour to support their previous album, The Yes Album (1971), the band regrouped in London to work on a follow-up. Early into the sessions, keyboardist Tony Kaye was fired over his reluctance to learn more synthesisers and was replaced with Rick Wakeman of the Strawbs, whose experience with a wider range of keyboards expanded the group's sound.

Although the Dust Bowl included many Great Plains states, the migrants were generically known as "Okies," referring to the approximately 20 percent who were from Oklahoma. The migrants represented in Voices from the Dust Bowl came primarily from Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, and Missouri. Most were of Anglo-American descent with family and cultural roots in the poor rural South. In the homes they left, few had been accustomed to living with modern conveniences such as electricity and indoor plumbing. Local and state infrastructures were already overburdened, and the steady stream of newly arriving migrants was more than the system could bear.

I loved Fragile State's debut, _The Facts and the Dreams_, so much that I was afraid their follow up, _Voices of the Dust Bowl_, might suffer from raised expectations. Well, yes and no. The mellow dreaminess is still wholly evident from the first track, "Four-Four-Four," but what weakens this album in comparison to the first one is a touch of self-indulgence. "Four-Four-Four," for example, would have been perfect at half its length. That's not to say, of course, that I dislike the album. It has a good number of excellent tracks, like the descending jazz of "600 Bliss" or the ambience of "Paper Smile." Fragile State excels, in addition, at integrating curlicues of world music without seeming patronizing: the mysterious vocals and didgeridoo in the melancholy "Cleo" add to the atmosphere; the recycled vocal of "Overcurrent" blends into the jazzy breaks. A completely enjoyable experience, despite my own expectations.
Scoreboard Bleeding
Jumping right into it, the opener of this album Four Tet Voices from the Dustbowl is a nice pop dreamy downbeat track. The basic sound of this first song continues as the theme for the whole disc. Soundtrack-like soundscapes that remind you of a young John Barry. Fragile State is Neil Cowley, keyboarder with Zero 7, and Ben Mynott, a music journalist with the Blues and Soul Magazin. That also might explain why the debut-album from Fragile State was voted Downtempo album of the Year 2002 in the B&S Magazine. But rightously so; the music is of high quality and can compare to similar acts like Thievery Corporation easily. It shoud also be mentioned, that Ben Mynott has a CD-Compilation titled Just Got Home: Fragile State that he put together and has been released. Songs included are from The Egg, Thievery Corporation, and Cocteau Twins. -c- ToxicTwinz
