If you have had the chilly pleasure of catching the last album 'Closer', you will naturally want to know 'what's new'? The answer is 'nothing much', but certain artists generate a creative fizz so far removed from their contemporaries that 'more of the same' is exactly what the doctor ordered. And adherants of this particularly affective blend of linear beats, melodic abstraction and comatose vocal delivery will not be disappointed.
The effect on the uninitiated is quite disorientating, a definite feeling of treading familiar musical territory with an almost complete lack of firm comparisons. Having clutched at (and discarded) various possibilities, one can only offer 'Warm Leatherette' as a part-influence.
Although the 'shock of the new' may have passed, there is still a lot to appreciate from this stark new set of tracks, the perfect accompaniment to a night of wearing black eyeliner and dissolutely sipping cocktails in a club so cool it doesn't exist...
