ALBUM REVIEW: Toast To Our Differences - Rudimental

Rudimental are definitely the band of the moment. Even if you don’t recognise the name, you’re sure to have heard the hit ‘Waiting All Night’ featuring Ella Eyre, which had huge airplay.

Before that, they first gained attention with ‘Feel the Love’ in 2012, with vocals by John Newman.

Today, they are rarely off the radio. This is their third studio album and it’s a real mix of genres.

It spans everything from electronica, to drum ‘n’ bass, to jungle, club, dance and house. I even think there’s homage to ska and reggae in there.

The title track ‘Toast to Our Differences’ has a summery vibe with punchy horns and an infectious beat. That’s as well as the song celebrating differences and the bringing together of cultures and styles.

Rising star Tom Walker supplies the vocals for the excellent track ‘Walk Alone’ which has more of a ‘pop’ feel.

And there are appearances from Jess Glynne, Raye and Rita Ora, plus lesser known artists who won’t stay quiet for long. The well-played hit ‘Sun Comes Up’ featuring James Arthur, is on here too.

It’s another winner from the band. The album is out now.
