They could clearly have culled a few clunkers off this one, but there are still a few shiny gems. How can you not get all weepy listening to "Ghost"? And doesn't "Wearchest" make you want to lift up your pint and swear defiantly at the world? Don't you get all a-goosepimply at the end of "Let's Go"? I do, and so should you.

This album has an ironically wonderful, depressing melancholic feel to it which reminds me of some rough times I was going through in the mid-90’s, around the time this album came out. This might be related to sufferers of depression like myself – but I feel somewhat confided in when listening to Goodbye.

Dubstar’s vocalist is from Newcastle and her lyrics are very Northern, albeit downbeat and heart-felt. Minor keys massively tower over major on Goodbye. Dubstar have a strange knack for exposing the listener to shining light before pulling the blinds on them. There are moments of beauty to be found on Disgraceful, as well as darkness. Polestar is a short blast of icy coldness from the North Sea. Say The Worst Thing First discusses relationship woes (“And I will never speak again, my face says everything”) but also seems to revel in it. On Ghost, a track clearly about missing someone, she sighs; “I still cook for two you know.” My Start In Wallsend has a n authentic, catchy acoustic guitar finish; “It all depends on if you speak to me”.

This reminds me of the person I was in 1996/7, and it is wonderful to revisit those times in music, no matter how depressing before I go back to normal life.

Founded in 1994 from the remnants of a male group called the Joans,Dubstar are really a showcase for the soprano voice of Sarah Blackwood who makes no attempt to disguise her Geordie accent the same as over 10 years later with Rachel Unthank.
Its typical of the pop of the time with half machines half real instruments comparable to Saint Etienne.What makes the sound different to 1000 others is the use of the Audrey Riley strings no doubt dubbed on after
With some strange artwork showing aliens in jars-which may even be embryos-ovens which look like cathedral organs and a moveable calibrator inside which shows all the song titles and which are also shown on the upholstered chair on the sleeve its a case of reading between the lines-a torture device with a pain monitor as used by Saddam Hussein who was at the time creating havoc in the East.
The only way acts like this can last is to go into folk Music so maybe Sarah Blackwood became Rachel Unthank

I bought this album when I was a little too young to appreciate it.

When I listened to it again over ten years after its release I was surprised. I enjoyed most of the songs. There's the odd filler tune but there are very few albums without fillers so that's not really a failing. The very English vocals of Sarah Blackwood are of particular note and are in a style that has unfortunately left British music as it gives it a very clear identity.

If you like understated electronic music with the odd guitar and bass riff then you'll like this album. Some parts remind you of Becoming X by the Sneaker Pimps while other bits are like the Pet Shop Boys.

A great, somewhat forgotten British band with a sound that is both pleasant and dour at the same time.

When I first heard this, I was pretty disappointed. But there are some really beautiful songs, Ghost in particular, but also No More Talk, Wearchest, Lets Go, Say the Worst thing First and lots of others. There's just a few too many, and few annoying and boring ones that are cunningly placed in a way to easily put you off the album at first glance (notably the first track 'I will be your girlfriend'). At first I thought there was too much synthetic background stuff and not enough voice, but later the songs come through and the musics quite nice lush and mellow, and I find I end up listening to it a lot. I really like it.

Really nice album with various tempos and styles.
Plus the lady in question who sings throughout the album never sounds
boring or tiring. Good album but not as good as the previous one Disgraceful.
