Writing for pleasure,
This review is from: The Noise Made By People (Audio CD)
Occupying space somewhere between the metronomic underground of Stereolab and Portishead's cinematic ambience, Broadcast's long-awaited first 'proper' LP is a delight. Its songs are characterised by an eerie, Joe Meek-ian production (Echo's Answer, Papercuts) and '60s-pop approach (Come On Let's Go) that never sounds contrived or strained. Indeed, despite their evident influences, The Noise... is an LP that, in the year 2000, succeeds brilliantly in sounding quite like nothing else.
Truly, a joy.
