Letting Go is a significant step for Oldham it is sung mostly as duets and features more instrumentation and variety than the minimal earlier albums And it mostly works brilliantly

Although almost lush at times embellished by guitars or with the rumble of dark percussion on the excellent The Seedling for instance it would be a mistake to think this is a total change of tack and the songwriting is at times as clear and postic as on Master And Everyone However the album is also imbued with a vague sense of strangeness the backing vocals of Dawn McCarthy are sweet but somehow slightly disconnected and the very English folk lilt of her voice is an effective counterpoint to Oldhams sweet lisp BA Woodhouse
