This review is from: Less Than Human (Audio CD)
In terms of composition and arrangement this record is flawless, seriously. Strong melodies/changes, good, apt vocals and a perfect understanding of dynamics are all plainly in evidence.
In terms of texture it's horribly bland. The production/programming seem indifferent; but not bad or inadequate mind you. If the composition were less impressive one wouldn't mind, as it'd be yet another pointless serving of electronica, but music this excellent needs more and better production.
(Just a note: by 'better' production I don't mean Royksopp-like syrup, just better use/sense of space and harmonics.)
Still I've been purchasing this music since 1986, so maybe I'm just jaded. If that's the case and it's just me, then get this record immediately!!!
