This review is from: Random Order (Audio CD)
Where do I start? I know nothing about Juliet. She released this song Avalon which I became slightly familiar with. Then most recently came Ride the Pain. This was a lot more inticing. A perfect merging of rock and dance music, written by people who understand that nuances should be found inside music, whilst they demonstrated and exhibited their knowledge of the history of electronic and guitar based composition.
But little prepared me for the album. Random Order appears to be the descendent of the pioneers of 80s synth pop, 90s rock, electronica and pop and the magical mystery of the 60s. Or, if you're looking for specifics, the proper sequel to Madonna's Music, except done properly. It climbs onto your back screams in one ear and whispers in the other.
I'm left wondering: is this the perfect album? I've spent the best part of 20 years of my life ferreting around trying to find good music, and, yes, I've found a lot of fantastic stuff, but I've never found an album that's as faultless as Random Order, for it made my jaw drop, it made me shiver, it made me cry and it stimulated my musical intellect.
