The title track sports a bass rhythm synth and drum machine and the instrumentation seems smoother and richer, although with a reduced tempo compared to adrenalized burst of their Deep Sea Skiving songs. With string-synths and other keyboards slightly reminiscent of Eurythmics, "Ready Or Not" seem to drown out the girls' harmonies in this mid-paced dance number.
With a weird swirling keyboards opening, followed by a sax, the drum-machine backed ballad "Trick Of The Night" was the Rams' third single here on the night life, focusing on a lady's man who has a different life. "but the wind comes through you try to sell your soul/everyway you go it's a long way/now you're no longer just the boy next door/when they were falling in love with that clean cut smart change of style/just for a lttle while." When I first heard it, I questioned its validity as a single. Now, I think it's one of their best.
"Dance With A Stranger" is another low-key delight that missing link between light Brit-pop and samba or easy jazz, what with the piano, vibes and percussion. The lush string synths kick in during the chorus: "before we kiss the world goodbye (it's only a breath away)/one more dance before you die (so tender as the music plays)/there's no emotion only passion in your cry/love is the last thing on your mind when you dance with a stranger.Read more ›
Stand out tracks are "True Confessions","Ready Or Not","Venus" of course and "Do not Disturb".The other tracks are also strong supporting tracks worth mentioning.I rarely have so many favs. on just one album!
The title track is a real teaser,it has some great keyboard,and superb druming to go with....The initial part of this track has quite a long introduction,before the girls start singing,I find this something special and rare.Most of today's tracks just don't give us these superbly crafted no's....what do u say.The drumming is by A. Linn,he is also good at what he does!
So "true Confessions" track is definitely a rhythmic,dancey number...as usual.
"Ready Or Not" is also so HOT,I love this one too!Really god on a dance floor.They say..."Ready or not,I'm coming,and I'm gonna find U baby so U better stop runing...." mmm!!gets me excited everytime .
A bit more sultry track in here is "A Trick of The Night".This track and the previous two were produced by Swain and Jolley.It takes some time to make an impression though...but is a great one to listen.Read more ›
