Times and fashions may change, but one thing endures: the value of a good pop hook.
The artists here—whether they create sparkling synth pop
or cutting new wave—are all dedicated to crafting perfect choruses that work their way into the bloodstream and endure for years to come.
The albums here are full of songs that do exactly that.
“Good albums make you want to do research. The best albums are the ones that make you passionate about what you're reading. "Suggested Improvements" has reignited the fire I had within me for implementation of transit and the desire for good city life, despite how weird and difficult that can feel. In other words: when will Idaho get actual buslines? Possibly never... but I'll sure as hell try to argue to death until it gets one that works.”
“For good reason I tested my new headphones with Crossing the Line. And here I am again, hearing this wonderful melodic bass and this wonderful energized voice. Only a few times but this time with The Last Dance and Nothing I had the impulse that I had to have this album. Thank you Maxthor!”
