Folk Implosion disappeared from view not long after Dare to Be Surprisedwhich failed to capitalize on "Natural One"'s surprise success. Though John Davis is credited with co-writing the songs, " Lou sang lead vocal and wrote most of the words," making this feel like a Barlow solo project blessed with greater popcraft. Part of the charm of Folk Implosion was that it felt like two friends just kicking back, making weird noises, and writing quirky songs.
Some of that remains, especially in the cheap synths and other electronic instrumentation, but One Part Lullaby is far more measured, filled with songs performed at the same basic tempo, with similar hooks and arrangements.
It's not mellow, necessarily, but has a meditative mood, which fits Barlow 's disarmingly introspective lyrics -- something The Sugar Hill Suite - Freddy Fresh - Still / The Joint to Sebadoh and solo albums, but previously unheard of on Implosion albums. Parts of One Part Lullaby work very well, but it's also curiously flat. The modern rock production feels two years out of date -- shiny and commercial for Carol Williams - 60 Yard, but an anomaly in Barlow 's writing is too emotionally insular and musically similar for it to be truly engaging throughout and mutes the carefree spirit of previous Implosion albums; worst of all, it feels like he's repeating himself.
