Zoot suits you
on 26 September 2003
"Living in a Magazine", their debut from two years ago was a hit-and-miss affair: too much Hall & Oates and not enough Yazoo. With teir second offering, Zoot Woman have managed to strike the perfect balance between cheesy retro-electronica and sheer melodic brilliance (in a perfect pop world, "Grey Day" would be a massively huge hit. Well, maybe it will !). Actually all the tracks are winners: "Taken it All", "Gem", "Hope in the Mirror" (hints of The Cure's "Let's Go to Bed" clearly show in the latter) are great dance/pop tracks similar to those that graced the british Charts in the early 80's. "Calmer" is a spacey sort of instrumental and "Maybe Say" has a melancholy touch to it.
This CD is definitely one of the minor masterpieces of the year.
