RIALTO Night On Earth (2001 German 11-track CD including London Crawling & Anything Could Happen picture sleeve EAGCD190)
"They tried to kill us off, but this show's not over" sings Rialto's lush night owl Louis Eliot on Night On Earth's highlight, the wonderful, Bowie-like torch-song smooch of "Anything Could Happen". Too true. Hapless chaps that they are, cinematic-pop combo Rialto have been dropped by the same unsympathetic record label on two separate occasions and therefore have never had to contend with such sumptuous inconveniences as worrying where to park the limo or being chased by the paparazzi. It's a good thing, presumably, that Simon Le Bon's flashbulb-illuminated world of catwalk arm candy and yachting off the coast at St Tropez isn't necessarily one of the band's aspirations. Even so, the up-market influence of vintage Duran Duran looms deliciously large on the band's second full-length album, with the likes of "Deep Space", "Anyone Out There" and "London Crawling" each evoking the pouting, puffed-up pop of that combos' glorious early 1980s period. But Rialto are very much Rialto--part Bond theme, part trashed-up glam-rock a la Suede or Jake Shillingford's My Life Story. Night On Earth is a fabulous record, one which ought to have been made by somebody called Walker or Gainsbourg--and one which suggests that, in letting them go, their previous employers must have taken leave of either their senses or their ears. But like they say, on "Anything Might Happen" (again), "It's nowhere near the final curtain". Third time lucky, perhaps. --Kevin Maidment

I've been aware of Rialto since the original release of 'Monday Morning...' back in my student days, quickly becoming a fan and rate their debut album very highly indeed. I did perhaps listen to it a little too much at one time...but I still come back to it regularly. Hence the prospect of another album's worth of material was very eagerly-awaited!
Well, I was very pleasantly surprised, as it's a genuine progression from the debut and perhaps even a little better. I was fearing simply a re-hashing of that album, lacking in any new ideas, but how wrong I was. My favourite tracks are the opener 'London Crawling', 'Shatterproof' and the final two songs 'Deep Space' and 'Under A Distant Moon', which close the album very nicely.
The first two of these are up there with the afore-mentioned 'Monday Morning 5.19' and 'Summer's Over' as works of sheer genius, with the ability to make you feel yearningly sad yet strangely euphoric at the same time. The drum pattern on 'London Crawling' is particularly effective and the choruses on both are built up to wonderfully and don't disappoint.Read more ›
But, they're back. With a new album which in many ways surpasses the first. Uplifting, depressing and gripping all at the same time, Louis and the boys have shown us that they still have what it takes to produce some of the best music of our time. Part of you wishes that more people would realise that they are out there and they would sell more records, but another part of you is pleased that you are party to one of the best kept secrets in British pop.
A superb album.
This second album is more of the same, but almost a bit forced, as if they knew what to chase, went for it, but lost a little of the magic. But only a little...
