Justin Robertson finally releases under his own name, and the album, REVTONE, seems to presage the whole electroclash phenomenon. But Robertson transcends any such limitations: “The Brightest Thing” is a stellar a house track, deep and luscious. Many of the vocal tracks (“Everpresent,” “Crawling to You” ) have that affectless 80s vocal style, but coupled with the long harmonic tones and the funky electro beats, they escape drudgery. “Ready to Depart” is more on the disco side, but “Love Movement” returns you immediately to the 80s synth pleasures. For those more interested in darker work, “My Dark Places” will hit the spot. For the most part, none of the tracks are as distinctive as “The Brightest Thing” until the very last track, “Everyday Haunting,” which starts with a jazzy drum riff and eases into some lovely off-kilter vibraphone melodies.
