referencing Am I Right?, 7", EP, Mute 134

Mute Records manage to pack 4 tunes on this 45rpm 7" at reasonable sound quality - thanks to Vince Clarke's typical soft sound.
Carry On Clangers is the most interesting piece to me here, as it represents Clarke's take on Bleep Techno. A nice bassline and a quirky and catchy bleep succession make this a fun tune. It's far less pumping than most techno tracks of the same period, and that's alright, yet a more club-friendly remix of it with harder basskicks could have been a nice idea.
Am I Right is a well-crafted, airy ballad, yet an unobvious single choice from the Chorus album. The other two tunes might have just missed the cut for the album, or maybe they were also considered too sexually explicit. Both are not far off the album's standard, Let It Flow being a melodious tune on a soft electro breakbeat, Waiting For Sex being the only one of the four tracks on this EP clearly aimed at the clubs, and the only one with a strong 80ies feeling.
