Having just read the Amazon.com review, I thought I really had to write this! The New Romance is in fact a brilliant, thrilling album which will have you unable to remove it from your stereo. Right from the first track, 'Something Bigger, Something Brighter', you can tell that this is special. Every song has something new to offer, the stomping 'Chemical, Chemical' to the haunting 'Holy Names' all of them shimmer with complexity and subtle keyboard undercurrents. PGMG have taken the promise of earlier songs like 'Speakers Push The Air' and evolved and developed their sound from sounding great to sounding, well, magical! Andrea Zollo's vocals play off the music to incredible effect, sometimes racing with the beat ('The New Romance'), sometimes smouldering to the bass-line as on 'Blue Lights'
Buy this album, put it in your stereo and leave it on repeat for the rest of your life.
