    It tends to go up and down with the whole melodic ballads and disco combination (Anyone, Scars, and Turn Away being the ballads, Scars being the best, Turn Away the worst), a few awkward party songs (Bricks And Motars, KillerLover, Emancipation), but the best are when you can tell their enjoying it. Especially noticable in Birds of Prey, Avalible, Unpersuaded, and Submission. I suggest It tends to go up and down with the whole melodic ballads and disco combination (Anyone, Scars, and Turn Away being the ballads, Scars being the best, Turn Away the worst), a few awkward party songs (Bricks And Motars, KillerLover, Emancipation), but the best are when you can tell their enjoying it. Especially noticable in Birds of Prey, Avalible, Unpersuaded, and Submission. I suggest less sappy songs, less awkward indie-ness, and more of their disco power that they seem to so strongly endorse Expand

    Good stuff with 4 or 5 outstanding tunes. Will appeal to fans of 80s guitar bands (the fall, wire, gang of 4 etc.) PS- Benjamin W doesn't know what he's talking about)

  1. If Ian Curtis had stuck around for Zoloft and Hot Hot Heat, Joy Division's Closer might've sounded a lot like this album. [Dec 2004, p.158]
  2. Dangerous Dreams' late arrival was nearly enough to doom it to obscurity, but the disc's lack of new ideas puts the final nail in the coffin.
  3. Dangerous Dreams is plagued by a pervasive feeling of been there/done that, and the album ultimately sounds like the same two or three tracks on repeat.
