7. Holy Ghost! – Dynamics
This, their second album, is their first proper one. Holy Ghost! was more a collection of singles they had made over the years. On Dynamics, they’ve come up with some fun dance numbers, but also explore a more mature sound. Some of the tracks here owe much to 70’s pop music — ironically before disco. The 80’s are still prevalent in their chosen New Order-esque synth sounds, but the slower songs like “It Must Be the Weather” are like Genesis gone completely electronic and “I Wanna Be Your Hand” might as well be an England Dan & John Ford Coley song. Not as strong as their debut, Dynamics is at times fun and introspective; however, if they continue to write disco epics like “Dumb Disco Ideas,” they will keep their fan base.
