Boomkat Product Review:
Slowdive fans take note. Last year, Neil Halstead released his first solo album: 'Sleeping On Roads.' Critics and fans alike lavished praise on it, and Neil toured around the world for a year after it was released. Every Mojave 3 album has sold more than its predecessor, and 'Sleeping On Roads' continued the upward curve; no doubt, fans will be equally enthusiastic to learn that Rachel Goswell has also taken up the solo baton, scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2004. But this burst of solo ambition being realised doesn't mean that the partnership between Neil and Rachel - which takes in three albums with Slowdive and three more with Mojave 3 - is at an end. Proof positive comes in the form of 'Spoon And Rafter,' Mojave's fourth long-player. Luscious.
