This review is from: Music That You Can Dance To (Audio CD)
Sandwiched between two mainstream pop albums in their discography, 1986's Music That You Can Dance To sees the Maels in a sonically adventurous mood, in some ways foreshadowing their highly original work in the '00s. The title track kicks things off in fine dancey form, followed by the huge cinematic sound of the Citizen Kane-influenced Rosebud. My other highlights include the highly experimental Shopping Mall Of Love, which features spoken verses by Ron (only his second vocals on a Sparks song, following Under The Table With Her from Indiscreet) and Modesty Plays, which was previously released as a single in a different version. Fans of No. 1 In Heaven and Sparks' more electronic albums will have a lot to enjoy here.
