The Antidote (Morcheeba album). Pitchfork gave the album a . out of ten, remarking that Daisy Martey replacing singer Skye Edwards was like "an Angela Lansbury replacing a Marilyn Monroe. Prefix Magazine gave it a six out of ten, noting the new direction of the band was "definitely welcome. PopMatters called it a solid album, but argued that Martey's style played against the Godfrey brothers' strengths, referring to the majority of the album as a "disappointment".
The skill it takes to create The pill to govern our state I'm thrilled to get this laid on I've spilt my last cradle song Oh, you won't feel insecure, for sure. I've got the medicine To suit the mood you're in I've got the antidote here My friend will let us in No matter where we've been I've got the antidote here
However, neither of those nostrums tops the absurdity of Morcheeba dubbing their first sans-Skye Edwards album as The Antidote. After a string of increasingly flawed LPs, the enticing siren Edwards bolted, leaving the schlubby Godfrey brothers in the dust with their mediocre backing music. Press releases try to plug this album as some freewheeling journey back in time, peppered with sharp-toothed blues and bouncy Bacharach melodies. Fat chance- Martey's got neither the bite nor brio for such deft reincarnation. Sadly, this is your mama's Morcheeba, totally sanitized and sexless, even when supposedly tapping the era of drugs, rebellion, and free love. They could've at least changed the band's name, for legacy's sake.
