        there's nothing I like more than an entire album with only one good song and that's what this is. Luckily, for you dear reader, it is the first one "Is It Love". Don't be fooled into thinking the whole album is on the same level, that's just a marketing trick to sell more records. The track's got some big poppy riffs to start out but settles into a more traditonal new wave vibe soon enough. The lyrics are nothing, "love is on your mind" love makes no sense etc. but the way they're sung is pretty nice with female backup vocals tossed in occasionally. generally a groovy light swayer but if you turn it up and let go you can get extreeeeemly loose to this deep beat. 3:50 ish we get some piercing emotional repetetive female vocals with the phattest brokendown bassline we've heard yet. i actually forgot about this little part and honestly if you've fully given yourself to the song in the preceding minute this little ending is the song saying "HEY YOU, you get it! you're who we made this song for" edit: i could listen to these 30s on repeat for an entire day
