4.0 out of 5 stars Magic Found in bloated 80's overkill revival, 25 Feb 2010
This review is from: SEEK MAGIC (Audio CD)
Memory tapes has succeeded with Seek Magic where many of there contempories fail. Firstly you've got to bring more than a casio to an 80's party ..and secondly have at least one song that captures everything that was actually good about music in that decade. The First track Swimming Field is a nod to the influential Cocteau Twins complete with chorus pedal guitar effects to boot and then straight into Bicycle which is has a New Order hooky bass line to complete what is the most addictive song ive heard for some time. Graphics is another highlight and will have you flailing on the dancefloor or lounge like a reminiscing thirty something pining for your 80's teenage youth or maybe thats just me, but its just like listening to Technique again for the first time. However the track Pink Stones although not poor is an instrumental that adds little and does seek magic. I like this album alot now bring on the 90's someone please and bring your guitars with ya!!
