4.0 out of 5 stars Artsy follow-up, 20 Jan 2007
This review is from: Adventures In Modern Recording (1993) (Audio CD)
The Buggles would hardly have any great devoted following based solely on the strength of this album, which doesn't have the instant "love at first hearing" impact of their phenomenal Living In the Plastic Age. Nevertheless, any serious collector would want this enjoyable record.

Probably the closest to their more familiar work would be the singles, I Am a Camera, and On TV, pretty good pop tunes. Most of the album leans in a progressive, sometimes jazzy, direction, not surprising considering other projects with which Trevor Horn was involved around that time. Still, I consider this album to be fairly unique in that it doesn't quite fit into any neat categories or comparisons. While the tunes may not be so much of the "hum on your way to work" variety, they are memorable in their own playful way.

Essentially, this is best suited for music lovers who don't get hung up about a group having to relive its hits over and over, nor about sticking to any rigid genre. Approach with an open mind, and enjoy the production master indulging in a bit of personal musical expression.
