Oh my.

I'm gonna wait until I get the CD, but I just listened to the first 20 or so seconds of Steamroller. I was expecting it to be a bit soft and orchestra-y, but it's got balls. Sounded like Rough Trade-era Belle and Sebastian.

Sophie's voice sounds incredible!

Exciting!!

I've not gotten to listen to any of the songs yet, as I'm currently at work, but I've put in my order for the CD. Not sure whether to listen to some of the songs tonight or to make myself wait for the arrival of the CD. Hmmm... maybe I'll listen to just 1 or 2 tracks, just to satisfy my curiosity a little :D

I ordered the CD on Thursday night and it arrived yesterday! (I'll buy with Cargo again if they're always that fast!) Anyway, the album is really lovely and I just thought I needed to say that somewhere. I've got it on repeat now. Thank you Dan and Sophia.

My favourite is the rowing boat love song - sorry can't remember exact title - classic Oober-goodness though!

And it was nice to see both Andy And Steve as well as Mr Walshman were involved. What are Andy and Steve up to these days....?

It's a truly lovely album, I managed to listen to it twice in a row which is a rarity these days :D

The album is amazing. I listened to it on YouTube and now I have the CD. I've also added it to my mobile so I can listen to it in the car. I've spread the word on every social networking site I can think of.
If we come from nowhere here, why can't we go somewhere there?

I've had a few listens to this now and it's really growing on it - it's fantastic.

Just placed my order for the album after listening to the whole thing on YouTube - it sounds great, I especially like 'Steamroller', 'Rowing Boat Love Song' and 'Silent Snow' - can't wait for the CD to arrive! :D

Have we just reached a new level for how wonderful music can actually be? It's some of the most magnificent stuff I've ever heard.

Me and my 5 year old son have both had this on heavy rotation for the last few days since it arrived in the post.

The title track London Town is both of our favourites... it's sassy!

Ooberman sure are a talented bunch, in any or all of their various cosmic alignments.

Retro. :)
