This review is from: Performance (Audio CD)
It makes you dance and it makes you think. It makes you glad and it makes you sad. Performance is an album that has been made with plenty of care - perhaps too much, inasmuch as it feels flawless, and sometimes flaws are what remind us of ourselves. This is not the sort of album with tracks you skip. There isn't a weak tune on it and side by side they add up to a whole that is satisfying and timeless - almost a concept album. Outfit are fine musicians and they have a point of view, from the dark disco of House on Fire to the rolling Great Outdoors, via the spooky Phone Ghost and the moving Thank God I Was Dreaming. It will be interesting to discover what the band comes up with next and if the quality of Performance turns out to be a mountain to climb or the view from the top.
