Out Of Stock I Like Trains - The Shallows
"The Shallows, their third album, is a record that wants to pause and consider everything before addressing the world on the chosen subject. It's tempting to call it old-fashioned, but that's not quite right. It's more that they're moving along a totally different timeline to everything else.The subject here is man's relationship with machine, and specifically how digital technology has changed the way we think. For a band who've previously referenced assassinated 18th Century Prime Ministers, failed Victorian polar expeditions and the Great Fire of London, it's quite a shift into modernity. Musically, that shift is also noticeable, if a little more subtle. A brave new world of processed and synthesised odds and sods, of electronic pulses and blips awaits. But it's blended startlingly well with the expected I Like Trains staples – the elegantly echoing riffs, Dave Martin's ever soothing baritone murmur – to make something that really works. But while it's fair to say there aren't vast shifts of mood and tone on The Shallows, when I Like Trains settle into their groove it's so enveloping and entrancing it's hard to criticise. The Shallows is baroque and orchestral, rich, languid, thoughtful and wrapped in gloomy darkness. Although there's always a wry and very English sense of gallows humour underlying it all. It's a desert island sort of record. The kind of album you could imagine being piped into a flotation tank to keep you occupied for hours. The Shallows is a remarkably deep thing."

About: "Digesting a sodding treatise on today’s technology-crazed world sounds as exciting as memorising your MacBook Pro instruction booklet, but I Like Trains have long had the knack for breathing the kiss of life into the bleakest of conceits..." (www.nme.com)
