The Garden is Zero 7's third studio album. It was released in the United Kingdom on 22 May 2006, and in the United States on 6 June 2006. The album features vocal performances by José González, Sia Furler, and Henry Binns. It sees Zero 7 take a new, more upbeat musical direction, while still essentially maintaining their original sound. The artwork for the album is by Gideon London and the CD was named after his collage.

In Zero 7's last album, When It Falls, there were more than noticeable hints that the band was taking the idea of a pop song a lot more seriously, which should then make it unsurprising that with Garden they've stepped even further in that direction, all but leaving their downbeat roots behind.

I'll cop to being a member of a group I wouldn't guess is getting bigger: Music critics who still rate Zero 7's Simple Things. Over the past five years, I've heard music nerds- mostly soul fanatics- unload crazy amounts of bile on that record, but their most propagated criticisms ("soul with all the black parts removed," "music for lattes") strike me as having too much in common with the rockist's critique of pop to take seriously.

The Garden sees Zero 7 take a fresher, more upbeat musical direction while still maintaining their trademark sound. Features the track "Throw It All Away" featuring Sia. Ok, so when I purchased this Zero 7 album, I was super excited about it, because I really, really liked their previous two albums Simple Things and When it Falls. I felt that this album fell somewhat short of those two. The strange and wonderful synth sounds were not as varied or as unusual on this album. The singing was less sensual and sexy, and more like the music that would get played on a Light Songs radio station. I was looking for something wonderfully weird, classy, and relaxing, like the previous two albums, and I feel like this one just gets halfway there.

With Garden, Zero 7 have created what could be the ultimate summer evening record: warm pop hooks, lush instrumentation, unobtrusive electronica elements, and '60s-style harmonies that all come together into superb, wonderfully descriptive songs.
