4.0 out of 5 stars Uneven excellence - but worth a serious listen, 5 Jan. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Twisted Tenderness (Audio CD)
I bought 'Twisted Tenderness' at the same time as the band's first offering, 'Electronic' and was struck by the contrast in sound between the two. Moving away from the drum-machine and synthesizer, Pet Shop Boys-influenced sound of the original, with its overtones of New Order's 'Technique', the pair have created an altogether less pop-oriented sound.
Having not yet heard 'Raise the pressure', I can't comment on whether that work marked a stepping stone on this transition. But 'Twisted Tenderness' offers few tracks (title track, 'Vivid' and 'When she's gone' excluded) which don't take some listening to to fully appreciate.
But this is one of those albums which quickly becomes a comfortable favourite.
