Undervalued pioneers of crossover dance music.,

This review is from: Utah Saints (Audio CD)
Far too often have Utah Saints been written off for 'cheesy dance tunes with sampled bits', but as their undervalued debut album proved with tracks like 'I Want You' and 'Trance Atlantic Glide' the duo had more to offer than the detractors would suggest. Their fusion of dance, industrial, rock and trance set the blueprint for many of the bands at the turn of the millennium, and listening to this album makes you realise how far ahead they really were. It's not a perfect release, with one or two tracks pandering to the market of the time, when you could tell that given a free run the results would have been slightly more focussed Despite the odd blip, this is a near faultless release, and stands up as well today as it did when released. It seems that Radio 1 et al have decided that a few top ten fits a few years back is enough. Despite heavy rotation of Christine Aguilera's new single (not due for release for a couple of weeks at the time of writing), they haven't started playing the Saints' latest masterpiece, 'Love Song', which is out now. It's only a couple of quid. Go and buy it NOW!
