Usually fun isn't a concept apes ponder over when they're trying to balance the universe. But *this*? Pop Will Eat Itself's highly regarded 1989 record ends up being one of those things that does put possibly the goofiest smile on my face. At 51 minutes in total, This Is the Day... stomps about with a dorky swagger matched only by hedonism and a surprising quota of substance the more spins listeners give it. While all that goes on, this English band soundwise do an incredibly commendable job melding styles like disco, dance, industrial and hip hop. Hell, even strokes of post-punk happen to make appearances throughout, namely on the cut "The Fuses Have Been Lit"; an easy standout moment IMO. Adding onto all that, the production values are choice, further amplifying The Poppies' wild abandon amongst other traits like having a charming character or their meticulous approach to music composition. ...K, an oxymoron's gotta be somewhere in these sentences. Suffice it to say that This Is the Day... is a big ass triumph, bits and pieces of dated cheese aside. Light 4.5.
