    A look back, a look forward

    I disagree with the author of the ''B-grade film'' review. For those who know and love OTR, and have been waiting for 5 years or so for their honest-to-goodness follow-up to Good Dog Bad Dog, probably anything would be seen as disappointment to some. Staying in the stripped-down mode of GDBD might be seen as a lack of risk-taking; taking advantage of the studio in a more Eve-like fashion might be seen as compromising their ideals. For a band as serious and above-the-fray, the latter is a bigger risk, but one the band has taken. Successfully. Yes, there are drum loops on some songs. In about half the numbers the canvas is broader than anything the band has previously recorded. Do not be fooled, though - there are still moments of great delicacy and intimacy. And the band has hardly sold out. My feeling upon listening is that of a summing up, a taking stock of the past - as well as a careful eye to the future. In some ways this album marries the studio polish of Eve to the mature, more introspective songs of GDBD, while simultaneously posing the question of where the band goes from here. OTR is now simply Karin and Linford, with whatever collaborators they choose to take on. What does this mean for the band? Films For Radio does not necessarily answer the question, but there is a feeling of new areas being charted, new territory mapped. Suffice it to say that any longtime OTR fan will find themselves both cheered and disappointed but different aspects of the album, depending on what they were hoping for. But any OTR fan would be a fool to deny themselves the pleasures of the best songs here. Karin's best singing yet. Some songs that stand up as well as anything in their catalog. Heck, it's a new OTR album! Why haven't you bought it yet?
