Black Box Recorder: The Facts of Life
Buy! - (Jetset)
While this British band's debut album of moody dream-pop was a relatively sparse affair, this time they've framed their poison-pen tunes with lush pop arrangements. The sweet pop melodies provide even more devastating contrasts with Sarah Nixey's delicate, whispered vocals and the acerbic lyrics of former Auteurs frontman Luke Haines and John Moore, who once again ruthlessly dissect the dark side of love and sex while also aiming a few barbed arrows at British life. 2/15/2001 - Don Yates
