Concretes - Concretes Concretes
Pop Used - LP LFLP 012 EMI
Beautiful 2004 180gm Rarity With Plastic Applique Leopard On The Front Cover. Appears Unplayed. “Four Years After Their Wonderful EP Collection Boy, You Better Run Now Was, The Concretes Return With Their Proper Full-Length Debut And First Album For EMI. The Spare, Spry Indie Pop Of The Group's First Releases Has Been Replaced By A Sugar-Coma Maximalism, Overflowing With Horns, Strings, Harps, And Mandolins. "You Can't Hurry Love" And "Diana Ross" — A Relentlessly Sweet And More Than Slightly Druggy-Sounding Song About The Diva's Hit "Love Hangover" That Actually Approximates A Love Hangover More Than Ross' Song Ever Did — Suggest A Supremes Fetish, While "New Friends” Foggy, Chiming Charm Nods To The Velvet Underground's "Sunday Morning." Actually, Motown Lushness Meets Velvets Narcotic Calm Is A Fairly Apt Summary Of The Concretes' Aesthetic, And When It Works, It Really Works. Along With The Previously Mentioned Songs, "Warm Night" Is Another Triumph, With Romantically Vague Lyrics ("I Follow You Down On This Warm Night/Down To A Certain Colour") That Sound Like They've Been Translated From An Old World Love Song, And Shimmering Mandolins That Are Oddly Reminiscent Of "Somewhere My Love" From Doctor Zhivago. Victoria Bergsman's Artless, Aloof Vocals Balance Out The Album's Hyperactive Sonics And Are The Main Link To The Band's Old Sound. In Some Ways, Boy, You Better Run Now's Startling, Starkly Pretty Pop Is Still More Striking Than The Concretes' Glossy Pocket Symphonies. But Even Though This Album Lacks Some Of The Unpredictable Energy Of The Band's Early Work, There Might Be More Cause For Concern If The Concretes Still Sounded Exactly The Same As They Did Four Years Ago. For The Most Part, Though, The Band Has Simply Traded One Kind Of Beauty For Another.” Heather Phares. AMG.... more details
