Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark - Dazzle Ships Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark - Architecture and Morality
Wow. I've never given OMD my full attention before. I've obviously heard "If You Leave" and I own Junk Culture because I found it in a thrift store vinyl bin, but fuck me was I ever missing out! I'm currently listening to Dazzle and I don't think I've been this excited listening to a new (for me) album in a long while. It's awesome! Just an incredibly paced album. I love how they sort of reveal their strengths piece by piece, from the techy/synth stuff, to good song writing, some impressive vocal chops and a whole whack of emotion just as things start to feel like they might be getting too robotic.
I'm really stroked to catch them at Coachella now.
