But alas, Blue Songs also has two slow, nearly beatless ballads. Blue Boy" is a cloying, pastoral bit on acoustic guitar. That style only sounds good if you can play acoustic guitar with a lot of technical skill.

Hercules & Love Affair - Blue Songs The "difficult second album" cliche may be the oldest in the music scribe's notebook, but following up Hercules and Love Affair must have been a daunting task. A similar theme ran through Hercules and Love Affair, but was overshadowed by the spectre of fresh defeats, raw wounds. With the misleadingly titled Blue Songs, Butler and friends have put this heartbreak behind them-never mind "I Will Survive," they have survived. The album is less bittersweet than its predecessor, and doesn't scale the same highs and lows, but if you borrow its rose-tinted glasses, you will see plenty of reasons to be cheerful.

This shittest album cover ever! so bad! awful! really bad!
A pretty catchy and retro sounding record. Enough Italo Disco, acid house , funk and synth pop for everyone. Nothing new but its like listening to a cover drag queen cover band from the 80's. A few songs sound like early Grace Jones. Like Answers in Dreams. And thats not a bad thing but definitely flamboyant music for a disco club. Painted Eyes might be the standout track and kicks it off the record nicely. If this track was made in 1983 it would be heralded as a classic. Leonora is another italo classic sounding one. As is Falling as well. My House grooves a fonky acid house circa Trax Records 1988. This should get anyone on the dance floor. Excellent. Step up is another acid house track that moves into euro house of the early 90's. I can't wait is also an funky house mover for the dance floor. It's Alright cover is a nice try and great idea to do it in a version like how they did it but its not as successful as it could have been. As the comment below notes, this mastering and pressing is dissapointing. Depth and volume equal to a 1985 record. Maybe it was purposely done? Still, it really hurt the spectrum and depth of these sounds. Indeed sad
this Vinyl isn't mastered for club use... so sad! :-(
