 Best album of 2010!

I was a bit apprehensive when I heard there was a new Groove Armada album. Ive thoroughly enjoyed their previous work and worried that their music would start to decline. At first I wasnt too sure, thought the music was a bit 'off' and mostly not like Groove Armada's previous work. Then I listened to it again, and again, then it clicked. This album is superb, It has Groove Armada's subtle touches and mixes them with some brash, innovative beats. I now absolutely adore this album, its an instant play at any parties or just chilling out with. My favourite album of this year, nay the last 10 years! Buy it, play it, enjoy it!

 Awesome!!!

Buy this album!!!!! From when you first put it on it just grabs you. Look were all different in what we like and I;ve gotta say it's something that they've wanted to do as it's on there own label now. The shackles are off it's just melting stuff..Quality without a doubt. It's a pinnacle of excellence........

 It's a BLAST!!!!

Consider Groove Armada electro-pop's last stand. The duo is so far removed from the genre's heyday it's impressive that they've remained more or less intacT/and more impressive that stadiums are still bowing to their squelchy, screechy synth exposition. Black Light is their sixth studio release, and unlike the gluey, glazy bedroom recordings that define the current electronic landscape, it takes pride in polishing its songs to a mirror shine.

Take the single "Paper Romance," a five-minute synthesizer kaleidoscope in which, amid an utterly exhilarating guitar scuttle, SaintSaviour delivers the fearless lyric, "I don't wanna take a chance on your paper romance anyway." The song feels unmistakably crafted, sewn together in a studio and designed from the ground up to deliver the most stimulating listening experience possible. Definitely a far cry from, say, Neon Indian.

Black Light sounds like it was buzzed in from of the early 2000s, completely and happily uninfluenced by the preceding years of dance music development. It ends up being an acutely traditional Groove Armada album: The token slow jam ("Shameless") and the droning, delirious lover's romp ("I Won't Kneel") are all here, crushed with those familiar slabs of grimy, effusive, and occasionally lovelorn electro. No, it doesn't push the genre forward; in fact, it probably pushes it back, but Black Light impeccably delivers on everything you could possibly want from the 14-year-old band.

 Grows on you... Like a rash (not one of those rashes!!!)

Its clear that there is a heavy 80's electro pop influence in this album. Although i was a child of the 80's and a lover of most things of this decade (other than the appalling fashion), i didnt really warm to it on first listen, didnt really like the style and the style of the vocals (a far cry from their earlier work).

However, as with so much music that you like on first listen, it doesnt really have much longevity and you grow tired and bored with it far too soon.

This is definately not the case with Black Light. It just gets better with each play. I can confidently say that its probably their most innovative album to date. As in true groove Armada form, they just keep reinventing themselves, each time arguably better than before. I can assure you, you will have never heard Groove Armada like this before.

Give the album time, it requires an open mind and a little patience, only then will it grow on you... like a rash!

In conclusion... Top album, quite possibly one of the best to date. Would thoroughly recommend, even to people that were'nt particular fans previously.

 even better than soundboy rock
