Reviewed by Philip Child

As 'Lost @ Sea' is slightly more polished than its rough-around-the-edges predecessor, 'Arbor Day', it may well be preferred by the purist. Again, the rockers from New Zealand bring forth comparisons with other bands: "My Forever Smoochy Girl" commences in much the same way as "Another World" by the Only Ones; "Understand" is swimming in the same waters as Caedmon's Call; "The Temptations" sounds as if the Lads borrowed Steve's instruments, while someone could almost have stolen "Coming Home" from Robbie Williams (as opposed to the other way round). Yet once again, to compare simply does not cover the ground. The gentle majesty of "Alone" has the power to send shivers down your spine with the way in which it expresses both a need and a desire for Jesus, while the '60s psycadellic punk tinged "Beetroot Strain" can set your feet tapping on their own accord. Overall, the album adopts quite an askew perspective which subverts, rather than bypasses, modern secular culture although the lyrics are perhaps more immediately relevant to young adults than anyone else. With its more polished production, this should perhaps dictate your choice between this and 'Arbor Day'. Alternatively, buy them both.
