stone - july 2000|
seductive rapture from
local chamber popsters.
don't be thrown by the power pop rush of 'sonic'; the
rest of leonardo's bride's second l.p. nuzzles gently
into the soft and sexy
groove of their languorous blockbuster 'even when i'm sleeping'. once again abby
dobson's curiously arousing sulk sinks into dean manning's slow release melodies
like a body into a scented bath, her yearning tone perfect for the sentiments of
'everybody wants to take you home' and 'let me come over'. only 'sleepyhead'
manages a genuine bad attitude but even at their prettiest [dreamship & blue
gone green], there's a sadness to leonardo's tunes that perfectly offsets their
sweet strings. 7/10.
best tracks - 'let me come over', 'sleepyhead', 'sonic'.
