Album Review: Clean Bandit - What Is Love (Atlantic Records)
Graham Clark, Features Writer
The first four tracks on the album have already been released as singles so you may know a third of the album.
Sticking to their regular format of using different vocalists for each track means that Ellie Goulding, Anne-Marie and Craig David appear on different songs.
Since pianist and violinist Neil Milan left the band, the sound that made Clean Bandit so distinctive has now gone, so most of the tracks here do not have that same early Clean Bandit sound, such as on their Number 1 hit, Rather Be, so a lot of the tracks here could be mistaken for a number of other artists.
The best tracks like Symphony and Solo have already been released so what's left is a bit of a mish-mash. The best new track here is Nowhere which features Rita Ora and Kyle.
I give the album 3 out of 5
