Amazon.com says it best: "The Garden is an intriguing listen, showcasing the sophistication that makes Zero 7 the Steely Dan of chillout--wry, intelligent lyrical observations, inventive musicianship, a detached sense of cool forged by the duo's heady blend of folk, jazz, '70s soul, and electronica. " The vocals this time around are handled by Sia (who has been guest singing with the band since their debut) and Swedish singer-songwriter Jose Gonzalez who sings on four songs including a wonderful reworking of his own song, "Crosses." The Garden is a wonderfully diverse collection of sounds and beats and songs. On it Zero 7 continue to push vocal based electronica towards adventurous places.
