Groove Armada sail once again with BLACK LIGHT, kicking things off with the rock-heavy electro chant of "Warsaw." The album as a whole feels drenched in 80s nostalgia, with "History" harking back to the nu romantics R&B era. "Cards to Your Heart" and "Paper Romance" both have that stadium, anthemic feel, while the smooth "Shameless" features Brian Ferry at his smoothest. The predominant mood here, however, is definitely upbeat rock -- it drives through the majority of the tracks. This is an unexpected direction for the Armada boys, though not entirely unwelcome, as it injects a blast of energy into their work -- guitars and all! "Time & Space" thrums with it, while "Fall Silent" uses the rock for a more contemplative mood (though, in the end, "Just For Tonight" sounds too similar to it). Raise your lighter to the sky!
