Masterclass. Masterclass in all elements. Masterclass in familiarity. Masterclass in originality. Even Benge’s safe and neat production gets twisted-up slightly to stay balanced with the wild vocal and lyrical content making this a masterclass in fresh. Strong, interesting and catchy songs are delivered and accompanied by strong, interesting and catchy electronic elements. Masterclass in sound design with the sheer ecstasy of revelling in such threateningly inauspicious doom and gloom. Masterclass in melody, each one invites you to sing along, you can even hum the drum parts. Masterclass in song writing, we know already this man, his voice, his words, unique, unpredictable, revealing and concealing conundrums simultaneously, and when accompanied by these machines the extra gravitas therein, masterclass. Even the accompanying booklet is a masterclass in design it is so perfectly suited to the content of this album. Masterclass in evolution as this is just one band at the top of their game, Neil Arthur has at least three other bands to digress and develop on from here, I for one am most eager for the next Near Future album all the more now, masterclass in anticipation. So yea, what is not to like, masterclass for satisfaction too. Masterclass masterclass. Thanks guys! x
