CD In Ghost Colours Modular Recordings, MODCD083, 2008, PROMO STICKERED 16 Track

Amazon.co.uk

Far more fun than the eighties actually were at the time, the second album from Melbourne’s Cut Copy, In Ghost Colours, is one of the slickest and most varied reinterpretations of the era to appear in the last five years. Selective nostalgia means that every sound from the past is open to reappraisal and Cut Copy have moved on from the sometimes slavish devotion to New Order that dominated their first album, 2004’s enjoyably familiar Bright Like Neon Love. By comparison In Ghost Colours is nearer to the dense pop of Electronic, Johnny Marr and Bernard Sumner’s often overlooked collaboration, especially the brash, acoustic guitar driven opener "Feel The Love" and the brash "Lights and Music". But on tunes like the lush "Hearts On Fire" and the more abrasive "So Haunted", Dan Whitford and crew also nod to the experimental pop of the Cure and Depeche Mode and the now familiar sonic attack that My Bloody Valentine originated (and Snow Patrol eventually turned into pop). Less obviously, late period ELO, increasingly adored by studio head, prove to be an influence. The producer here is none other than DFA’s Tim Goldsworthy, and though Cut Copy are far from the bittersweet hedonism of his other recent clients Hercules And Love Affair, In Ghost Colours works both as contemporary dance-rock and, edited without gaps, as a complete album.--Steve Jelbert

Bright Like Neon Love came out 4 years ago and was an excellent debut album from this Aussie electro indie band. I liked it a lot, but couldn't helped thinking when listening to it, that it was on the cusp of something grand, where maybe not even the band realized how close they were to pushing up and over that edge. Album co-producer and LCD Soundsystem member Tim Goldsworthy may have been just the extra touch they needed to push this exciting band to the upper realms of electronic indie land.

The songs really tighten up and there are a lot more lyrics and vocal tracks than their debut LP. It also clocks in at over 50 minutes, while Bright Like Neon Love was under 43 minutes. Gone are some of the elongated electro instrumentation with a few strips of interlaced vocals found on Bright Like Neon Love. These songs are much more pop aligned, and judging by the strength of some of them, enough to extend their listening audience to an even broader range.

There's a treasure trove of catchy tunes, including the opener, Feel The Love, the progressive rocker So Haunted, and the unexpected leftfield turn when the chorus kicks in during Lights and Music. 80's backing electronica is again the theme, especially on Far Away, where you could have placed it onto any new wave, synth-pop album between 1984 and 1987 and no one would have even noticed. The dreamy interludes are a nice touch, as they glide and connect us through 15 tracks without a bad hitch at any of the stops along the way.

Harmonious from top to bottom and very well produced, this 2nd album is one of the best examples of how talented, non-mainstream, electronic artists can really be. I wish the band much success, and let this highly recommended album do the rest.

Sorry, but it was the second time that "Ghost Colours" was advertised as UK Special edition with 3 additional songs. And - well - both CDs I received were just the normal edition which I already possessed since many years.

This album took a fair few listens to reveal its indie-dance delights in all their glory, but be patient because it is well worth the effort. The pop gem Lights and Music is for me the stand-out track, along with Hearts on Fire, and at first I mourned the passing of these songs as I feared nothing would be able to match their genius. I was wrong - there is not a duff track here, the songs segue into each other with dreamy mood pieces, swooning guitars and bubbling electronica and make for a nightmare on iPod shuffle but hey, this album rewards you if you listen to it as an entire experience from start to finish. It's a classic case of the "grower".

Album opener Feel the Love is all strummed guitars and echoing vocals, a little too generous on the ooh-oohs but this can be forgiven when Dan murmurs "Hey you" in that warm 80s croon, and then a falsetto vocoder comes in with a beautifully catchy melody, which sounds brilliant - and I am not usually a big fan of distorted vocals. Next track Out There on the Ice has a keyboard sound that I'd swear was straight out of Enjoy the Silence by Depeche Mode. It's bittersweet brilliance and all the textures come together with the sound of an appreciative crowd as the song reaches its peak.

Now, I need to explain just how much Lights and Music means to me. I was a child in the 80s, and an adolescent in the early 90s, and this song makes my heart swell with joy, it really does. Lush synths, a juicy, urgently driving bassline and Dan's happy-sad warm tenor - trust me, it really is honey for the ears. It builds to a euphoric climax with simplistic lyrics that somehow take on a new and deeper meaning because of the power of the music.

After catching the brilliant Hearts on Fire, my expectations for Cut Copy's second album were immensely high. So when I heard the follow up singles So Haunted and Lights and Music I wasn't really sure what to expect as the sound had become a lot poppier - was this a move in the wrong direction from the excellent eclectic first album?
OK - theres no Bright Neon Payphone but aside from that this album is almost completely faultless in a way albums should be. You can listen and enjoy from beginning to end without having to skip past the more 'average' tracks - there simply are none. True, there are a few interludes of experimental noodling but these are brief and actually quite welcome in the mix - much like on Depeche Modes Violator.
Cut Copy wear their influences quite clearly tattooed on their forehead. If Peter Hook gets a listen he may be off to Australia to have words about the riff at the end of Hearts on Fire. However, this is all a good thing. The album may be a missing link between New Orders Technique and Electronics debut album but that again is fine and dandy.
Cut Copy have excelled themselves with an album that clearly embraces both the revived eighties discotronic and much loved indie jangle. Its nothing immediately new but it sounds very fresh and alive. Well done indeed.

I recently bought this CD on the strength of the reviews on Amazon and having heard the songs via preview. I really like this CD, whilst it is not offering anything that new, I really connected with the 80s retro sound and creative use of synth and guitar sounds. I suppose any review is subjective, but for anyone that enjoys solid 80s synth pop this is a must buy.
