We´ve just received the new Album of Richard Ashcroft „Keys to the world“. Thx to amazon we got it in the postbox today, the official launch day. This is his 3rd solo Album, after „Alone with Everybody (2000)“ and „Human Conditions (2002)“. As we are now listening to the first tracks, we´re expieriencing a change in the character of the music – it seems much lazier, not as dark and heavy as the ones before. It looks like Richards mastered his crisis – and the music is the mirror of this „new“ powerful artist. Great album, great music.
