Milosh iii's lightweight


DESPITE the deeply disturbing nightmare of an album cover - easily the best album artwork of the year to date - Milosh's third LP is more of a gentle snooze.
Mixing electronica with soul and R'n'B vocals, the Canadian soloist's overall affect is a delicate, beautiful one.
But sadly, what iii demonstrates in originality and sensuality it lacks in bite.
This ultimately means the whole album washes over the listener, sounding like D'Angelo fronting The Postal Service - although for me Milosh's vocals show hints of both Jimmy Somerville and Mika - when what the songs need occasionally is "oomph", a meatier beat or a harder edge to instrumentation.
