The music is beautiful, brutal, intriguing and intelligent all at once. Who else can use a Euro-pop song structure to discuss such "taboo" subjects as murder and homophobia (see "Straight Life" on The Facts of Life)? That's what you get when you put Luke Haines--Brittain's resident cynic--together with Jesus and Mary Chain alum John Moore. Add to that mix the gorgeous Sarah Nixey and its heaven (or hell, if you like bland Americanized pop). The Auteurs never lived up to the great expectations of giving suede a run for their money, but Black Box Recorder is right up their with Brittain's best current acts.
Plus you get the videos. This CD is an oddity in that for once we in America get the rare album, and the Brittish fans have to get the import!
