4.0 out of 5 stars Packed with would be hits in an 80s style; impossibly good!, 1 Sept. 2005
This review is from: Clor (Audio CD)
With Live8 romanticising the musical summer of twenty years ago, Duran Duran playing stadiums, 'Hit Me Baby One More Time', those funny uber-mullets that suddenly loads of blokes are wearing (not me, no chance!) and now this; 2005 really has been the year of that most unexpected of revivals, an eighties one! Totally uncalled for too if you ask me, speaking as someone who can well remember that painful decade, it was rubbish and the music was, by and large, dire (straits).
None of that should reflect badly on Clor though. Their debut starts at the place Blur left off with 'Trouble In The Message Centre', injecting that Numanoid template with so many pop hooks and lyrical songs that even the most die hard eighties detractor will surely be won over. Singer Barry and guitarist Luke (formerly DJ's at the eclectic Bad Bunny club night in Soho) aren't just mere electro-pop boffins though, they've clearly indulged in some Can, Eno, Roxy Music and there's probably the odd BBC Radiophonic Workshop album in their DJ box too! It's all tastefully thrown into their melting pot of pop madness. The opening trio alone ('Good Stuff','Outlines','Love + Pain') are each would be or actual singles that could easily spark a resurgence of interest in The Human League and Sparks. This is one of those amazing first albums where the band arrives out of nowhere already fully formed, great things surely await!
