Perhaps one of the most remarkable synth CD's I own.
on November 21, 1998
Ronnie Martin and Jeff Cloud have concocted a sugery-sweet musical confection that makes me ache with adoration! This is PURE synth-pop. No computers, no drum machines, no samplers. Just two men and an army of exposed wires creating truely visual, simply beautiful, carefree songs. If you are an Erasure fan because of Vince Clarke - this will fit into your collection perfectly. Each track is so individual and meaningful that it's difficult to pick out one. 'Berry Patch', or 'Storybook Love' are the epitome of Joy Electric music in it's most definative state. The sweeping, arpeggiated beats, blips and beeps coupled with Ronnies innocent, faithful lyrics and vocals are fantastic and unmistakable. Wait until you hear '(We Are)Taking Over' and you will fully realize these boys talent. They not only make wonderful and catchy songs, they showcase their amazing gifts and show off (just a bit). I hope that every synth enthusiest gets the opportunity to listen to this very dynamic and original album.
Sincerely, Bill Talley
