This is certainly different from "Girls and Weather", but like many great and legendary bands, this is simply an evolution to their next phase of genius. A moody and an original variety of tracks that would grace any West End musical stage, with a sumptious full orchestral support so typical of the perfectionist that is Mark Ronson, producer.
Certainly strains of Scott Walker in the opening and title track, but none the worse for that. "Raindrops" and "Happy Hell" are memorable, as is "Backbone", with a myriad of wonderful wavering discordant strings adding to the ambiance.
Although it could be labelled a retro-sixties collection, it would not do justice to this addictive compilation of the re-born Strips, that promises so much for the future. Ignore this space at your peril!
