Bright like neon love,
This review is from: Kill For Love (Audio CD)
I clocked this CD in Piccadilly Records' 2012 end-of-year chart and decided to check it out.
Chromatics achieve what the likes of Cut /// Copy, LCD Soundsystem and the Beauty Room have narrowly tried and failed to achieve. What IS that then? I guess it's a sound that draws on its (retro) electronic music influences without tracing over them; without trying too hard.
Imagine a collaboration between Tangerine Dream, Boards of Canada, Giorgio Moroder and Kanye West and you're just about there. But really this record is something else. "Kill for Love" has been on almost constant rotation since I got it about a week ago.
There are many albums which sound good, beyond reproach on first listen. Not that many albums compel you to listen repeatedly, but "Kill for Love" is one such album.
Chromatics are my new favourite group.
