Although not a great fan of the blissed-out trance music that exploded around the time this album was released, my brother was, and when he bought it, he insisted that I should give it a try.
And I'm grateful that he did. This is a great album: poppy and euphoric at times, but also occasionally wistful and heart-rending, too. It has been compared to Depeche Mode, but I think it feels less harsh and bare than their work; certainly the singles "Personal Jesus," etc. that I know them by, anyway.
There are a couple of songs that are a little weaker; but there are easily enough good ones to give this 4 stars. "Hello", "Your Love Takes Me Higher", "The Sun Rising", but in particular the beautiful "Don't You Worry" are favourites of mine.
Gently insistent, this is an album that I sometimes forget about for a few months; but I'm always delighted when I find it again....
