Saso's 'Big Group Hug' was released in unspectacular manner, but with a modicum of publicity, almost universal critical acclaim and word of mouth it turned into a cult hit. Part of the engima was not revealing anything about themselves but that shroud has now been removed and Saso are infact singer/writer Jim Lawler and producer Ben Rawlins. 'I Can Do Nice' was released in their native Ireland some months ago so many UK residents will be relieved to get their paws on the follow-up. 'Lost At Sea' is cut from the same fragile cloth as its predecessor but 'Why Wait?' is fuller-sounding; Lawler's soothing vocal pushing once more for Elbow's territory. Thereafter, however, there's a few surprises as the music takes a turn down several dark, ambient alleys descending into total blackness on the deceptively-named 'Soft Focus'. Fittingly the song that follows, 'Artefact', is an outlet for a more downbeat sound symbolised by glum rock guitars. Overall, though, much like 'Big Group Hug', it's an album of adult concerns dressed as warm, soulful rock where only the dark, disillusioned lyrics could prevent it from being passed through to daytime radio.
