4.0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to BBC's John Doran - this is a great record, 30 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: History Of Modern (Audio CD)
John Doran are you an idiot? You need to wash out your ears and stop spouting such nonsense. To say this is " a poor return to form " is in effect you admitting that you would not know a great record if it was right in front of you. This is an awesome piece of work from the band, sounding new and refreshing yet magically linking back sonically to their 80's work. A difficult feat in itself, they have achieved this goal perfectly. This is not a comeback album from OMD, that would be to undermine the acheivement of creating something new whilst maintaining the heritage of sound that all OMD fans will recognise and love. There truly is barely a bad track on it, with perhaps only two being close to 'filler' material. The rest are total stonkers.

SO, WASH OUT YOUR EARS DORAN. You clearly have NO taste in music.

Best album of 2010 IMO.

Well, I'm an old school kind of OMD fan having first seen them live on the Organisation tour in 1980 at Brum Odeon. I have to disagree with your review I think there's barely a good track on the album. Maybe it's my 45 year-old ears, maybe they yearn for something a little different. I'll give it another chance and listen again, but I must say I was slightly disappointed.

You are somewhat outnumbered in the review stakes CvF. The 4.5 star current average suggests most people love it. Although that does not make your opinion less valid, it does show that they have got this 'comeback' album right. Something that not many artists manage to achieve.
