I doubt that Gene will ever surpass the brilliance of their second album, "Drawn to the Deep End." But "Libertine" comes close.
I don't hear the Smiths influence so much anymore (which is good), but I do hear a more mature, polished sound, with string quartets embellishing the mood when need be. Similarly, Martin doesn't scream at the top of his lungs anymore (again, which is good), yet songs like "Walking in the Shallows" tell you that these guys can still rock out. And Martin's lyrics are brilliant in describing the agony of lost love.
I'm a rarity -- a Gene fan in America. Most people here have never heard of Gene. Same for Suede and Pulp, unfortunately. But I'll go to my death convinced that British rock beats American rock anyday, and Gene are still great purveyors of my favorite type of music. Let's hope they keep going for awhile.

Gene have come up with a more sophisticated sound without losing their unique identity. The switch in record labels seems to have paid off with a recording of excellent quality, which is why it's a pity that Libertine doesn't include the brilliant 'Rising for Sunset'. Nevertheless the boys go from strength to strength and without a weak track on it, Libertine may even be their best yet. Keep em coming lads!

Deemed by many to have 'gone away', Gene show that although the music press may go quiet on you for a while, it doesn't mean that you're not preparing a gem of a new album all along. And that 's exactly what 'Libertine' is - a darker, less guitar orientated collection of tunes than previous records that is driven primarily by the bass and drums and which, after several listens, infects the very brain of the listener. Top tracks - the seedy opener (and up coming single) 'Does He Have A Name?', and the brooding, explosive-chorused 'Spy In The Clubs'. If you've never bought any Gene records before, treat yourself today to Libertine. If you have bought Gene before, buy several copies of it.

With this, Gene's fourth album, they provide those who still care about brit-pop a beautiful more mature sound than previously. The way they weave the polyphony of instruments is seamless, with the incredible voice of Martin. They seem to know how to create great coruses which hit home if you love beautiful meaningful music. Why can't more bands be like these guys. I am from the heartland of America, and see a need for Gene and other UK bands in the US. This band rocks when it's necessary and slows down when it's necessary..perfect.
