Hooverphonic - Blue Wonder Power Milk  Print E-mail
Music Disc Reviews Audio CD

Blue Wonder Power Milk,
Sony Music
| Performance 8.5 | Sound 8.5 |

Hooverphonic's 'Blue Wonder Power Milk' is my second pick of the year as a guaranteed winner. This record, Hooverphonic's second effort, is reminiscent of both Garbage and Massive Attack by featuring sexy vocals and ethereal sonic effects coupled with unusually strong melodies and song composition.

The killer demo cut on 'Blue Wonder Power Milk' is track 6, "Lung" with a driving, real (non programmed) drum beat, which sets up a Seal-esque foundation for a great single. "Eden" uses electronic means to paint a lush landscape of tones for a mellow, almost sullen track. "Electro Shock Faders" with its sing-songy lyrics, doesn't quite make the grade, while the rest of the album tends to keep up.

'Blue Wonder Power Milk' is the kind of record you can cite when nay sayers blab "there isn't any good music being made anymore." Sonically, this record is much better than average, and when paired with strong songwriting, excellent composition and compelling sonics, you have a winner.
