5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 29 Mar 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Noise Made By People (Audio CD)
Around the release of this album, Broadcast were keen to demystify the process of music-making, describing it as mathematics, and just a matter of chords. Despite this scientific approach to an 'art' form popularly perceived as organic and untutored, Broadcast don't half work some magic within the equations.
Their careful grasp of song structure means that every song is a near-perfect mix of haunting melodic pop and the experimentalism for which Warp records are better known. Lazy comparisons have been made with Stereolab, but the faintly jazzy, saturated film-soundtrack pop Broadcast make is largely unique. Particular standouts are 'Unchanging Window', where Trish Keenan's dispassionate vocals suit the detached yet oddly human atmosphere of the music perfectly, and the magnificent 'Look Outside', a three-and-a-half minute epic where not a note is out of place.
The best thing about perfectionism is that, now and again, its results are perfect. 'The Noise Made By People' is such an occurrence, and constitutes a compulsory purchase.
