DELAYS Faded Seaside Glamour (2004 UK 12-track CD album including the singles Long Time Coming Nearer Than Heaven & Hey Girl picture sleeve RTRADCD114))

Amazon.co.uk

If you were in your car during the summer of 2003, heard "Hey Girl" on the radio and felt the urge to turn the volume up, you know that the Delays can turn out a good pop tune. Their long-awaited debut Faded Seaside Glamour confirms their ability. The aforementioned single is here, along with the others--"Long Time Coming" and "Nearer Than Heaven"--and nine other guitar driven pop/rock songs, none of which disappoint. Although it could be said that the Delays are not the most original of pop bands, few would question their song writing or musicianship.

Greg Gilbert's almost falsetto vocal is the driving force; at times it sounds as if it's about to crack, but it never does. This is especially noticeable on "You Wear the Sun", one of the rockier numbers in the set, with a simple but stunning piano riff slipped in for good measure. "Stay Where You Are" stands out as being slightly different to the rest of the tracks on the album. It has a darker feel, with keyboards more prominent than the guitars; still, the melodies remain and it serves as a good contrast to the rest of the album.

"One Night Away" is a stomper of a song, reminiscent of the La's or Crowded House. There are also reminders of the Cocteau Twins, especially on the opening "Wanderlust". Such comparisons are fair, but the Delays are a fresh new band who produce good old-fashioned, sing-along pop music. --Jamie Clark
