Every time this goes on, when we have guests around, they say "this sounds fantastic, what is it?" and what is even better, it just improves with every listen. Several tracks would work in a club but the best way to listen to it is on your own when you have some time to listen properly.
A unique album, I'm trying to think of more mainstream references than other reviews - how about a (much) darker Pet Shop Boys combined with Depeche Mode and washed through 'Plastic Letters' era Blondie? Well, maybe not but I'm trying! The layers of sound are beautiful. I love the first two albums but this is just way beyond either: full of mystery, evocative sounds and stronger singing than before.
The stand out track for me is 'International Dateline' - really dreamy and 'Destroy...' would be great for anyone who wants to vent their anger by listening at full volume.
I've recommended it to everyone in my vicinity so make sure you at least get to hear it.
