Its hard to believe that it is now thirty years ago since the Human Leagues masterpiece DARE a ground breaking album of brilliant originality, and although there have been some good songs along the way, for me they have never managed to recapture the magic of Dare. Could Credo be the answer and give us DARE2? Sadly no.

Listening to Credo you feel that musically the band said all they had to say some years ago now, but its good that they are still around. Unfortunately for me there is a real banality to a lot of the music and lyrics on this album, as they say the same lyric in some songs repeatedly over and over again, and some of the songs feel on one level and begin to blend into one another, each song sounding too much like the last.

Although there songs have been remixed by many artists; musically things havent really developed a great deal since the 1980s, with a lot of fairly DIY synthwork that reminds me of their early more raw sounding work from the late 1970s. But the analogue synthesisers do have some warmth and charm with good dance beats all with the familiarity of Phil Oakeys baritone and the girls Sulley and Catheralls distinctive vocals.

Credo is slightly nostalgic, but doesn't match up to past albums and for me it unfortunately does not move them forward in a positive manner either. The songs are at their best when the lyrics are powerful and I do like SKY, EGOMANIAC and their new single NEVER LET ME GO, but cannot warm to many of the other tracks like NIGHT PEOPLE the first single from the album and ELECTRIC SHOCK.

The songs manage to form a good line between dance and pop as you would expect, but its difficult to imagine who their new audience will be in 2011 other than true Human League fans like myself. Credo does have some winning moments, but not enough to catapult them back to their great success thirty years ago. I really wanted to be able to say that this album is fantastic, but it's not. However, all that said, I am pleased they are still around doing their thing.

 'Don't You Want Me' - Not This Album Thanks!

Well after the huge wait from 2001's wonderful 'Secrets'. The same cannot be said for this awful mess called 'Credo'. What was the idea here. Let's go out and make a bland and uninspiring album for a change. Well that certainly seems to be the result here.

Of the 11 tracks here only 3 of them are on a par with any of the group's previous album and single material. The tracks funnily enough are listed in chronological order from 1-3 on the album. It's like the group knew this too.
The good tracks are 1. Never Let Me Go 2. Night People 3. Sky. After that you are advised to stop wasting your time and money. Believe you me I have tried to like the album... but compared to previous works it is absolutely DIRE, BLAND, UNMELODIC and BORING. Three good songs out of 11 do not make a good album. I've loved all the groups previous albums since DARE. Very disappointing effort on this one. Avoid it and just download the first three tracks only.

 Great Electro Pop

A great comeback that sounds fresh and new yet totally recognisable and really couldn't be anyone else....-the sound of the vocals and analogue synths only belong to the League.
My fave song by a mile is "Never Let Me Go". I've loved it the minute I heard it a few months ago and never tire of it. Love the original, the remixes, the video....hope they play it live. It deserves to be a hit and become a League classic.
There are a few stand outs as real classics "Sky" -which I hated at first, but its grown on me. "Electric Shock" is brilliant as well. I've been a real fan of "Night People" since its initial release and that hasn't changed.
A few good album tracks "Into the Night", "Breaking the Chains", these may never be hits or get played live but they are strong additions to the album.
The only one I don't like that much (though its still a great pop song) is "Single Minded".
At the moment I'm thinking its not as good as "Secrets" or "Dare" but its defo in my top 5 of League albums. So glad they can still make great music and hope there are a few more albums of this calibre to come in the next few years....

A fantastic return to the 80s masterminds, if the rest of the cd is as good as single night people and the live rendition of electric shock i cant wait for the rest of this long awaited album of new material.

 Probably the last one

Ten years after the outstanding "Secrets", the league brings you Credo. Some nice tracks (Sky, Never let me go, Breaking the chains) Some tracks to skip (Single minded, Privilige, Electric shock). Overal, not an ambitious project, too monotonous. Who likes skipping tracks? Having said this, some tracks certainly are fine, it just doesn't work as an album.
