Japanese Exclusive Release.
As a British dance-pop outfit, The Beloved found commercial success with Happiness both on and off the dance floor. Validated by the hit "Hello," they were able to configure the vocal-dance scene for chart consumption. Combining electric rhythms, orchestral slams, guitar leads, and sultry singing, The Beloved secure a niche that sounds like a happier version of New Order or Depeche Mode. Softened by wandering lilts and melodic hooks, the...
Moloko is far too distinctive for easy comparison, though the duo's blend of deep electrofunk groove, club beats, and hip absurdist vocals--along with a brightly colored retrofuturism (Moloko is, after all, a reference to A Clockwork Orange)--comes closest to Deee-Lite. By flashing a truly loopy attitude with songs as fresh and thrilling as they are catchy, Moloko makes Tight Sweater one of the best debuts of the year--no matter if it is 1995...
Garbage's third album is an almost total departure for modern rock's renowned poster children. Shirley Manson, Butch Vig, Duke Erickson, and Steve Marker robustly straddled the line between alternative rock and techno in their two efforts, whipping up two finely crafted CDs that captured the cultural mood of the late '90s. After six years in the saddle, they've shaken off the charge that they're a producer's creation and have emerged as a...

In this era of easy access even to inaccessible things, it's hard to believe something so worthy of notice could slip beneath our cultural radar for so long. Yet Nick Currie, a Scottish pop aesthete who's been steadily releASINg records as Momus for more than a decade, has so far managed to evade stateside detection. Late 1997 brought his first-ever U.S. release, including a compilation and a brand-new studio album, Ping Pong, poising Momus to...
Including 4 new songs and 13 remixes, Expand Your Head slices, dices, and reassembles the Lords of Acid's X-rated techno-raunch into a towering stack of dance-floor trends. Opening with the new "Am I Sexy," the Lords follow suit la the campy big beat of Dimitri from Paris. Newbie number two, "As I Am," is standard-issue rave-alert acid house, while "Who Do You Think You Are," with its lyrically colorless rap screamed above industrial guitars,...

By the time of The Language of Life, Everything but the Girl had reached a point in their career where they could get accomplished jazz musicians Joe Sample, Michael Brecker, and Stan Getz to play on their album and not have it perceived as an affectation: the duo had already made five albums that showcased Ben Watt's ability to write a classic melody and Tracey Thorn's silky vocals. In working with producer Tommy Lipuma, they made an album of...

For listeners with a sincere interest in the broad variety of music loosely aligned under the New Age banner, Pure Moods II will strike your ears as something less than a high-concept showcase for the genre and more as a mulligan stew of easy-listening favorites. This is not necessarily a bad thing; yet a recording marketed to the general public as a comprehensive, current, state-of-the-art overview of atmospheric music shouldn't include such...

At its best, listening to the Jayhawks make music is a beautiful American experience falling somewhere between drinking a cold Coke on a hot day and driving through the Rocky Mountains at sunset. Perhaps it's in the clarity of Mark Olson's tenor melodies and their accompanying ghostly harmonies, or maybe it's in Gary Louris's immensely raved-up country rock licks. Or perhaps it's the impression left by lyrics that never reveal the whole story ...

This Scottish trio offers the most commercial expression yet of the current U.K. obsession with spacey ambient "chill out" music, as practiced by The Orb and Sven Vaith, among others. While much of the dragged-out, slow-paced material here suggests Bananarama on downers, the Stephen Hague remixes of, "Breakdown" and "White Love" say their piece and sign-off quickly. --Jeff Bateman
