4.0 excellentSteech | November 27th 12

Everyone loves the theory of Big Audio, New Order, Depeche Mode, and Happy Mondays. But those bands made unlistenable albums.* Tanlines is different in that they don't force all their songs into six and seven minute compositions (when three minutes will do) or put a bunch of theme/variation tracks on their album and call them songs. Because Tanlines's pop songs are treated like pop songs, they're easy to enjoy. There's crossover potential, even outside the club scene.

*Okay, not a perfect statement. Depeche Mode and New Order both made a few decent albums - here and there - but that was when they were doing essentially the same thing that Tanlines is doing here (deliberately making an album of pop songs, like Violator, or Brotherhood).
