I absolutely love this album every song is good.
Russell Foster
Maybe it's just me but I also love the female background vocals mear the end in harmony with the leads.
Sean R. Hendrickson
If you are not familiar with Cause&Effect, I would compare them roughly to Depeche Mode.

There is no denying the comparison when listening to Cause & Effect's debut Another Minute (if you have the import version, it's actually a self-titled debut). Though released in 1991, Cause & Effect sound very much like Depeche Mode (albeit DM from between Some Great Reward to Music for the Masses) - so much so that when I heard "You Think You Know Her" I thought it was DM. Now some will criticize that. However, I find nothing wrong with it, especially given the drastic turn DM made from Violator to Songs of Faith and Devotion. Another Minute is enjoyable synth-alt-pop that has depth and definite dance floor appeal. Okay, so it sounds every bit of a late-80s/early-90s release... who cares? It's still fun, enjoyable, and great piece of synth-alt-pop history.
The release starts off with the first single from this release, the fun and danceable "You Think You Know Her." With beats, orchestrations, and vocals that sound like upbeat Depeche Mode, this song sets the stage for the tone and style of the rest of the release. The import remix single contains a 7" Version, Promiscuous Edit (very club friendly with some New Order sounding elements), and The Deception Mix (a hard hitting techno-house club mix provided by Tony Garcia). The DM comparisons continue as you listen as you hear the intro orchestration to "Farewell to Arms." However, despite the heavy DM sounds (or perhaps because of them), this is a great song to chill out with. Another single, "Another Minute" is definite up-tempo and up-beat dance floor material. The remix single contains 7 mixes (some by Paul Rjinders of Anything Box and Danny Tenaglia) and the bonus track "Unholy Day" (definite b-side material). "Something New" is also up-tempo but more plaintive with minor harmonics.

Cause and Effect has been likened to Depeche Mode and I suppose that it can be said that there is some similarity there. However, I would have to say that where DM's tunes seem to be "dark" in nature and center quite often on religious matters, Cause and Effect is the "light" side of that sound.

True, both groups share a similar sound and feel, but the ultimate delivery is considerably different between the two groups.

I own every one of DM's albums, EPs, and any other DM issue out there. That said, I'm nuts about Cause and Effect.

On this album my favorites are Farewell to Arms and You Think You Know Her.

I've got all their albums and I'm just itching to get another.

Cause and Effect are a band easy to listen to on a regular basis (but then so is DM).

Get it you'll like it.

I listened Cause and Effect here first, looking for a sound that had the vocal energy of Depeche Mode. I found it here and I find that this is a better listen overall than any one of Depeche Mode's earlier works. The wealth of DM's work still puts them in the forefront. Comparatively, DM is like a dreary winter day and C&E a bright sunny spring day. I cannot say enough about the vocal talent of Rob Rowe.

1. You Think You Know Her-5/5- Dust off this early 90s club hit, like New Order with better vocals. The first song I bacame addicted to.

2. Farewell to Arms- 4/5-Powerful Vocals! This song shows what Rob Rowe can do. Downbeat with heavy synths.

3. Another Minute- 5/5- Very catchy and addictive early club hit! Can't compare it to anything really, Just have to hear it. Maybe it's just me but I also love the female background vocals mear the end in harmony with the leads.

4. Something New- 4/5- Pop song with some nice orchestration.

5. Echoing Green- 3/5- Not my favorite, kinda cheesy, as always good vocals.

6. What Do You See- 5/5- Dance floor friendly, bouncy, with a dreamy vocal quality.

7. New World- 5/5- One of my favorites. Took a few listens to realize this. The best lyrics on the whole cd. It is a very relevent song in this age where cities sink and terrorists bring buildings down. It speaks of rebuilding and of the light shining through the dark, and finding love in a precarious place. Ethereal is the word that comes to mind.

8. Nothing Comes to Mind- 4/5- Very much a pop song kind of upbeat, the background vocalist is great in this song.

9. The Beginning of the End- 3/5- A very Depeche Mode like song.

I can't believe I missed this early 90's release as I was a big fan in that period of all things electronic and most things danceable like the Pet Shop Boys and Depeche Mode. Nonetheless, I am enjoying it now in 2002 more than ten years after its release.
I understand the comparisons to DM, but I would say that Cause & Effect spent a lot of time listening to polished, melodic pop music in general. They understood the importance of finding that hook that distinguishes good pop from bad.
Like icing on the cake, they could take the pop hook and make you want to dance to it as well. Nicely done.
