4.0 out of 5 stars In Love With The Eighties, 20 April 2014
This review is from: Authority (Audio CD)
Client are an able synth-pop ensemble with a desire to be taken seriously as artists.
I have no quarrel with their ambition as the results, heard here on their new album
'Authority', are pretty damned good. Despite the somewhat chilly, po-faced exterior
they can't quite seem to stop themselves from turning out infectiously feel-good tunes.

Their proclivity for referencing the eighties is present and correct throughout
and although they might hate me for saying it the spirit of Bananarama would
appear to be alive and well in a good few numbers in this new collection. (That's
a good thing in my book by-the-way!) For goodness sake you can dance to it too.

Choice tracks include 'The Shining Path', which lives up to its title and sparkles
along merrily and 'Refuge' which, despite its somewhat ponderous lyrics, also
possesses energy and elan in abundance. Things are pretty-much full-on throughout
with the exception of 'Faith' which is a richly-textured and rather lovely anthem.

All-in-all an engaging and enjoyable contribution to the genre.

Recommended.
