After their sublime, yet more low-key first album, Hooverphonic get a new singer, with a voice just as entrancing in a different way, and explore a more trip-pop environment, while not losing any appeal or orginality.
There are similarities in the songs, but they set different moods, and feature futuristic, perceptive lyrics that add to the intrigue of the music.
While each song is memorable, some of the highlights to me include "Club Montepulciano", a groovy, hypnotic tune featuring Geikes soaring, honey-sweet vocals, "Electro Shock Faders", a funky song sung by one of the band's male members, and "Tuna", a sort of mournfully hopeful ode to the future's promises.
I could mention many other songs, but this is an outstanding collection of quality music from a band that already started on a gorgeous note.
one of the 90s' best, in my opinion.
