Format: Audio CD
"The troublesome second album", although technically the third (they did one before Natalie Bassingthwaite joined), is an accomplished electropop/rock/dance album. Unlike 'Here Come the Drums' which featured a few good heavily-sampling single releases backed up by passable album tracks, Dark is consistently high quality, delivering a mix of rock, pop and more complex tunes, prominently featuring the Bassingthwaite vocal. There's something about her vocal style that I find very appealing: she sounds thoroughly disreputable; the kind of girl your mother warned you about - almost Avril Lavigne, but not fake. The driving, pounding, electro-dance/rock style, reminiscent of Transvision Vamp or, maybe, Blondie for the 21st century couple with those vocals to great effect: there is often a sense of mischievous play, of a tongue ever-so-slightly in cheek, which works well.

Even on the best of albums, there's usually one track that doesn't quite get there. Not so for this. Calling All Lovers starts us off in typical style, the opening few bars reminding me of Bodyrox's Yeah Yeah. This I am sure will be a single release, with a good catchy hook and pounding electro-rock accompaniment. Don't You Wanna Feel, the first scheduled single, is a more punk outing, with good synth and the ever-present electronic percussion sound. I Never Liked You starts off sounding like another version of the first track, but is more electropop with Bassingthwaite at her playful best. Candy Coloured Lights starts like the lovechild of Tubular Bells and Blue Monday, then settles into a slower almost wistful electronic style.

This is a great album, it takes a slightly different theme in style than Here Come the Drums, but it's Rogue Traders at their best.
