The creativity in pop music that died in the mid-1980's with the introduction of assembly-line manufacturing of mainstream acts, only to witness the introduction, later in the decade, of melody-deprived rap, the launching of ugly grunge sounds in the early 1990's, and the sappy vocal warbling that sugar-coated R&B songs in the late 1990's, surfaced in this largely-ignored masterpiece released in 1995. Dubstar's debut album, with hauntingly-beautiful singing, pulsating percussion, rich textures of synthesizers, sparkling guitars, and brilliant original song-writing, should not only be regarded as a classic but as the best album of the decade. There is not a boring moment on the album. It is irresistable from start to finish. It's overall sound is a breath of fresh air. Highly recommended.
