Cheesy and cheap are words often bandied about in reviews of Bent records, but that's a little harsh when it comes to this album. While their choice of vocal contributions (Billie Jo Spears, David Essex) is certainly offbeat the result is the sort of polished pop associated with the LP's producer Stephen Hague (Pet Shop Boys, New Order). Hague's influence is particularly strong on the David Essex 'collaboration' which kicks off sounding like Chris Lowe covering New Order's Thieves Like Us. Overall though, Everlasting Blink has a sound which can perhaps best be desribed as Orbital jamming with Lemon Jelly while the KLF man the sampler. Highlights for me are the hazy infectious disco of Magic Love, the catchy electro pop of Ordinary Day and the Jon Marsh-vocalled Beautiful Otherness which brings back fond memories of early Nineties raving. As so often happens with music of this type, tunes from The Everlasting Blink are already finding their way into advertising (such the recent ad for tax credits). Fans of Lemon Jelly, Royksopp et al are well advised to snap this album up fast before its poppy beauty is tarnished by too much televised repetition.
