Amoeba Review

Brad 10/15/2012

Electronic was like my dream come true. It was basically a supergroup combining two of my favorite bands. Bernard Sumner from New OrderJoy Division and Johnny Marr from The Smiths. They also worked with Neil Tennant from The Pet Shop Boys on a couple of songs. The album sounds way more New Order than The Smiths. I think it allowed Johnny Marr to experiment with new instruments and create different kinds of songs. The name of the band was perfect. The album was perfect. It featured the single "Getting Away With It" which had been released a couple of years earlier. The album also featured "Idiot Country," "Reality," "Tighten Up" and "Gangster." You can't really get better than this album. It might have seemed weird at first that Bernard Sumner and Jonnny Marr would be collaborating on a new project, but it proved to be the perfect match. The album is full of great energy. It is a dance record for sure. But it has the intensity of a really good collection of New Order songs. These are dance pop songs. These guys knew how to write a great song. I still can't turn this album off once it starts. They also went on to create one of my favorite songs, "Disappointed," a couple of years later. That song was featured on the Cool World soundtrack. Electronic went on to create two more albums in 1996 and 1999.

 

This album featured in Brad’s Best Albums of 1991 blog.
