Format: Audio CD
I was (still am!) a massive fan of their previous album which was an extra large dollop of challenging electronic genius. Naively anticipating more of the same, I was a tad disappointed with CTLY. Giving it the 3 plays rule I always apply, I can now say I get it! This is an extension of their previous work. Cold Cave is evolving and becoming more confident in its art. The style is much more accessible (although not 100%) and they are obviously going to widen their appeal.

Electronic-wise (which is my motivation!) there are some excellent tracks; confetti and underworld usa being my current favs. There is also the 80s feel cropping up throughout. I do here myself thinking that bit sounds like Talk-Talk, Cocteaus, Joy Div/New order, Cure (for example) but to me that's a positive. A small amalgam of what's good about those artists together with bags of evident originality is, to me, what makes this an excellent album.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 15 May 2011
Format: Audio CD
Cold Cave is, substantially, US singer/songwriter/noisemaker
Wesley Eisold and with his second ablum under the CC banner
there is much to enjoy and a whole lot of retro fun to be had.

Mr Eishold's heart is entwined with the dark spirit of 80's synth
pop but 'Cherish The Light Years' is an album beyond nostalgia;
it is reinvention of the most spirited and imaginative kind.
The nine tracks in this collection sizzle with wit and unbridled
affection for (and understanding of) the genre's foundations.

The tunes are strong; the beats massive; the vocal performances
drolly satisfying. The sparkling density of the arrangements and
production bristle with a wonderfully unbridled boyant energy.

There really isn't one duffer in the bunch. Dip in anywhere and
you're likely to have a big smile on your face in moments. The
nods and knowing over-the-shoulder winks really don't matter one way
or the other. There's a party going on here and I feel like dancing!

'Underworld USA' and 'Catacombs' are both terrific examples of
Mr Eisold's capacity to hold up a mirror to the past and to look
forward at the same time. His passion is palpable; his vision clear.

The totally barmy 'Alchemy and You' currently gets my vote for top track.
The blistering guitar, snarling vocals and topsy-turvy brass intrusions
had Mrs Wolf and I spinning around the cave like whirling dervishes!
(The moody but strangely uplifting final track 'Villains Of The Moon', with
its beautifully constructed chorus, comes in to land a very close second).

Blinking Marvellous!

After hearing certain tracks in a clothes shop, I was excited to purchase this. The opening and closing tracks (1-9)are brilliant in a totally over the top way, bit overall a bit disappointing.
