Neon Neon - Stainless Style


before this album came out i was very excited! as a huge back to the future fan, a concept album about john delorean sounded like pure eargasm material especially as it was a collaboration between boom bip and the singer from the super furry animals (not to mention guest appearances from har mar and spank rock!). then it came out, and i listened to it and was so so so disappointed i pretty much vowed never to listen to it again. but, after the insistence of my brother and his girlfriend i gave it another go and much to my surprise...it sounded exactly the same and i was even more disappointed that i had even attempted to give it another go! however (yes there is a positive end to this tale) on the train home from work yesterday i was bored and had nothing new to listen to, so i randomly decided to give neon neon one last chance to impress and boy howdy did it?! it was just what i needed! i was reeling from no new music and it acted like a brand new album and has not been taken off repeat since. it is one big nostalgiaenfused80sconceptdarkfunk treat with some great lyrics and some very very good songs (i'd probably say belfast was my fav). so, if you haven't heard this before download it, and if you have heard it and didn't like it give it one (or two or maybe even three) more chance(s)...

I know what you mean. I havent liked this album at all. Maybe I'll also give it another go, if I haven't deleted it already.
