The Impossible Thrill is more of the same laid-back Bacharach-styled trip-hop that was found on ComeFromHeaven. Unfortunately, it's missing some of the magic that made their first LP so wonderful. The first thing one hears upon puching play is that Alpha has made the switch to live instruments, no more relying on samples. It has mixed results. Don't get me wrong, I'd much prefer live instruments over samples, but when it actually takes substance away from a song, you know there's a problem.
The duo behind England's Alpha - Andy Jenks and Corin Dingley - combines groovy synth sounds, live string arrangements, acid jazz, and torchy flair to create the atmospheric lounge numbers found on their second album, The Impossible Thrill. Three singers - Wendy Stubbs, Helen White, and Martin Barnard - all lend their vocal stylings to the disc's 11 airy confections, which recall Portishead and Massive Attack (who, incidentally, own Melankolic, the label to which Alpha is signed)
