Well I liked it
on 4 September 2005
After seeing the live show, and loving the two singles (LOVE + PAIN and OUTLINES), I thought it would be worth getting the album. I had some doubts that the live sound would work on record, but Clor have obviously realised this and have adapted the songs to fit.
And it's a cracker of an album! Although the band have pop sensibility and excellent song writing talent (think fall and early devo), the upbeat keyboard-based tunes, sparse use of guitars and mostly electronic drums will not appeal to everyone. If your taste in music is a little quirky then the album might be perfect for you. Clor obviously have alot of good ideas, but instead of dwelling on them, each song is over in a 3 minute blur, even the album's masterpiece (Garden of Love) is only about three and a half minutes.
Chances are, if you've liked any of the singles (the third single GOOD STUFF is going to be released soon) then you'll like the album.
