After being an avid Client fan for many years now during the 'Client B' (Sarah Blackwood) era, who I thought made the band, I was a little apprehensive about buying this latest offering by the new incarnation of the band that I've loved for ages. I've seen the band live many times and personally met the various members (including the lovely Sarah!). From the very first track on this album, I loved it, fantastic, catchy tunes and great lyrics by 'Client A' (Katie Holmes). The band really have stood the test of time and the testing times of line-up changes. I've liked all the previous albums but I have to say-and I really didn't expect to be saying this-'Authority' is possibly the strongest album by far! I think Client have sloughed their old skin and emerged from the cocoon as a bigger and (if not quite as sexy) band with a Hell of a punch with this new material. I hope they go from strength to strength from now on but in my estimation, they have gone well up the electronic ladder! I was saddened at the loss of Sarah in 2010, who I thought brought the main 'sexiness' to Client (particularly live on stage) but this album hasn't lost anything at all with her departure.
Buy this album if you love electronic music, you won't regret it! Long live CLIENT!!!
