4.0 out of 5 stars Portland, Oregano, 9 Jan 2009
By 
Gannon (Manchester, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Night Drive (Audio CD)
This release is a long way from the band's early experiments with clattering punk type music and is an altogether more elegant and refined affair. All current Italians Do It Better releases are tricky to obtain but all are worth the pursuit, and this is no exception.

Like a shyer Glass Candy (or G/L/A/S/S/C/A/N/D/Y, if you like), this album runs with the glacial-disco or nu-disco template but is a different beast to its more showy sister. Johnny Jewel plays in both bands so the crossover is substantial, and the breathless, disinterested and sexy vocals are certainly a theme across the two records, but 'Night Drive' is entirely more laid back - one for the after show.

'In The City' is my personal highlight, part wistful, lazy-beat lament, part atmospheric, slowburning driving (in all its senses) anthem, though some will see the Kate Bush cover 'Running Up That Hill' as the peak, I feel it one step too far toward unforgivable kitsch.

As unlikely a place as Portland is for an 80s Italian Disco revival, I can but only commend the results.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for a Drive in the Night, 6 Mar 2013

Bought this because I liked the song that was on the Drive film Soundtrack, the album has a similar sound, it feels clean and cool. Makes good night time driving music. Only down point is that some of the songs are a bit bland and fillerish.

What is there not to like about the Chromatics, however not quite as good as the last album, which incidentally was outstanding. So I guess that makes this just excellent.
