Field Effect take one more step with their sixth album to date - Residual. Residual is more refined than previous works and Field Effect are clearly finding their footing with the combination of voluptuous electronic sound creations and infusion of tenor saxophone and bass clarinet. This latest offering is fresh and represents what Field Effect are about, avoiding imitations at all costs, they are clearly focused on their unique style. Matt doesn't incorporate electronics as a means to an end. Contrarily, both Matt and Tony pick their spots wisely while complementing their shrewd arranging and melody-making faculties. It's all about the music, and not the implements used to create it. That unto itself speaks volumes these days.
