This review comes from an internet game. You buy an album you've never heard of from a shop. Then you write your impression of it before and after listening to it for the first time.

---BEFORE LISTENING TO IT---

WHY DID YOU SELECT THIS ONE? The sticker on the front listed a single called 'I'm His Girl.' I thought it sounded like an interesting song title. That combined with the artwork reminded me of the 'I'm Not Your Toy' music video by La Roux. I'm not a fan of that song, so I'm not sure why that made it so appealing, but it did.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE COVER? It's interesting. I'm not sure it's a good cover as the split window view is a bit trashy, and the 80s style soft focus photography is exactly the type of thing I loath the most from that era. I really, really prefer pin sharp images. I find soft focus to be very annoying and cheap looking. I assume it's the lead singer at the front of the picture. She gives off a slight New Young Pony Club vibe (a band I like a lot). She has a stuffed tiger head beside her but she's wearing leopard spot tights. There's also a sci-fi hint of Colin Baker era Dr Who to the photograph. It's a cover that is both very compelling and off-putting.

WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC ARE YOU REALISTICALLY EXPECTING? Electro pop. I expect a very strong 80s sound, like La Roux, New Young Pony Club and Little Boots.

BEST CASE SCENARIO IT WILL SOUND LIKE? It will sound like it belongs with those three bands. Hopefully they are strong songwriters who have managed to craft proper, satisfying pop songs. The singer will ideally have a great voice, or at least be distinctive.

If this album were just "I'm His Girl" it would be incredible, slinky, cool pop built around a terrific bassline and so UV-lit and blue-purple it's hard not to be drawn in, absorbed by the self-confident, spacey world Friends construct. But it's not, and the rest is fab too: all 38 minutes of it are groovy, percussive, signal "let the good times roll" like nothing this year so far save Sleigh Bells. Perhaps sometimes it reminds one a little too overtly of others - La Roux, The Slits, New Order - and one hopes they'll strike out on more of their own path in the future and become even better for it. But to deny the infectiousness of "Friend Crush" or the piping hot "A Thing Like This" or "Ideas on Ghosts" on the grounds that they're a tad unoriginal would be churlish and wrong. Ace.

The début album from Friends is a bit of a mixed bag. Not because its all over the place, rather because its so mixed in the tracks and the approaches it takes. It also, in my opinion, gets better as it goes on. The first three tracks for example are very poppy - funky and catchy. Especially the opener, Friend Crush, which I found myself humming long after it finished playing. However on tracks like Ideas On Ghosts the more mature pop sensibilities come out. That track could belong on an 80's pop album (think Talk Talk and not SAW 80's) and is a real throwback. Lead vocalist Samantha Urbani has a voice that really lends itself to the tracks here. I'm His Girl showcases the light touch and the rhythms used really well. So catchy and so easy sounding. Va Fan Gor Du sounds like the scrambled guitar of Talking Heads in the Stop Making Sense era. A really catchy and funky number.
Mind Control really does stand out though as a closing track its groove and choruses work well. In other hands this might sound very different but here it works as a very good pop track.

This is an interesting début and promises much from this band. Certainly not everything works here but what does work is good enough to warrant repeated listens.
