Fifteen years after the release of their debut album and after a long pause, Lamb released '5' in 2011. The album was followed by a major tour, and in 2014 Backspace Unwind came out. Five years after '5' ,Butler Records now reissues the album including four unreleased songs.

The main difference with the previous album is that the voice of Louise Rhodes is more prominent on "5". The songs are warmer and in some way more accessible than before. The album received good reviews everywhere. Outstanding tracks are Back To Beginning with Damian Rice, the warm and subdued Rounds, as well as the electronic tracks like Butterfly Effect and Another Language. You won’t find big hits here, but Lamb fans won't mind! They expect beautiful and quirky songs, and those are included!

The press release says that the four bonus tracks are worth to be released. Well, you really can’t say they’re real surprises. Dischords, the demo version of Rounds, the instrumental version of Last Night The Sky and The Spectacle (Reprise) already were available on the limited double CD.

Don’t be upset by all this. In case you don’t have this album in your collection, this is your ultimate chance to buy it and to (re)discover its splendour. The music is still relevant, excellent and timeless. And what an unique voice Louise has!

Vijftien jaar na de release van hun debuutalbum en na een lange pauze bracht Lamb in 2011 ‘5’ uit. Die werd gevolgd door een grote tournee en in 2014 verscheen de aardige plaat Backspace Unwind. Vijf jaar na ‘5’ brengt Butler Records het album opnieuw uit, aangevuld met vier onuitgebrachte nummers.

Het voornaamste verschil met het vorige album was dat op ‘5’ de stem van Louise Rhodes nog meer op de voorgrond kwam. De zang was warmer en minder tegendraads (toegankelijker dus) dan voorheen. Het album kreeg overal goede kritieken. Uitschieters waren Back to beginning met Damian Rice of het warme en ingetogen Rounds, alsook de elektronische tracks zoals Butterfly Effect en Another Language. Grote hits staan er niet op, maar Lamb-fans zitten daar ook niet op te wachten. Zij verwachten eerder mooie en eigenzinnige songs en die zijn hier wel aanwezig!

In de perstekst wordt vermeld dat de vier bonustracks het waard zijn om uitgebracht te worden. Nou ja, echte verrassingen kan je het niet noemen. Dischords, de demoversie van Rounds, de instrumentale versie van Last Night The Sky en The Spectacle (Reprise) stonden eerder al op de gelimiteerde dubbel-cd.

Laat dit alles niet aan je hart komen. Heb je dit album nog niet in huis, dan is dit je kans om deze cd alsnog aan te schaffen en de pracht ervan te (her)ontdekken. De muziek klinkt nog steeds relevant, knap en tijdloos. En die stem van Louise blijft toch wel uniek!
