Camouflage were routinely dismissed by their US and UK detractors as prefabricated Depeche Mode with a darker twist. Their fans, of course, know the difference! Camouflage is commendable (and catch them at Synthstock, if you can!) because they weave such an unusual, sinister undercurrent into the sweetest of electronic songs. Anyone who likes Erasure (guilty pleasure :) or Xymox will feel right at home here. Granted, they're much more serious than Erasure ever was, but songs like One Fine Day and On Islands still find them overflowing with quirky, positive humor. For the more darkly inclined, Feeling Down is a goth club classic, and Sooner Than We Think and Les Rues are disturbing and hauntingly beautiful. You may not enjoy this throughout on the first listen - their experimental side leaves vast tracks of sonic wasteland, that, the first time through, you don't even notice are well-populated. But with time, you'll find that the simplicity of the songs is veiled in subtlety, and rewards each listen with more dark beauty. Plus, it's just flat-out fun. ;) PS - seek out their best work, Voices & Images, if you can.
