Champagne Taste Lemonade Money
“Indeed, the album – at times brassy and bombastic, others spacious and reflective – is impossible to pigeonhole, its consistency deriving from the emotional flow rather than any sonic homogeneity.
Think of the most decadent Hollywood star you can, then imagine them getting married for the fourth (or is it fifth?) time to some dissolute countess in a sprawling Provençal chateau, then The Invisible Orchestra would be the wedding band invited along – a day early, with some casualties – to soundtrack that balmy Mediterranean evening of A-list debauchery, filling the pink skies with stridently lush arrangements. It’s polished enough not to fall apart, smudged enough to swing.”
