Yup. It's Good. Very, very good in fact.
Genre-fretters have long been out to pin this fine little combo down.
Three albums in however and what we have here in essence
are twelve splendidly energetic pop songs.
The pared-down, edgy simplicity which has become
Mr Hince's and Ms Mosshart's calling card belies a finely
honed ability to create catchy and memorable material
of the finest calibre from the simplest musical building blocks.
'Getting Down' must surely have the ghost of Mr Bolan smiling in the wings.
'Cheap and Cheerful' could and should find a place in every discotheque in the land.
'Last Day Of Magic' romps along like there's no tomorrow - it's
killer hook chorus is utterly irresistible.
Darker moments intrude occasionally. Closing track 'Goodnight Bad Morning'
demonstrates a capacity for a more tender, reflective style but essentially
'Midnight Boom' is a stonkingly upbeat affair.
We will be unlikely to hear many more finer albums this year.
