This review is from: Forget (Audio CD)
I first heard/saw of Twin Shadow when NME put a video of one of his songs online as part of the "10 tracks to hear this week" page. We could see the guy drum and sing in the studio, on a track that I remember being both catchy and uptempo. Well, my memory must fail me because I cannot find anything as catchy and uptempo on this record. It's not that it's bad, it's more, like, after 3 listens, I couldn't cite any of the songs if my life depended on it. True, the overall sound of the album has its biggest roots in the 1980s. The neat, bland if respectable end of 1980s new wave to be more precise. ** and a half.

3 listens? hardly letting it in, is it?

Perhaps not. But surely you must have heard LPs - I sure did - that didn't need more than one listen to get to you. My point is that this album is (by far) not one of those. No printed lyrics maybe is another drawback.
