I Say Dance, You Best Dance
We're on the
verge of a new millennium, an age that was supposed to have been
full of bright ideas, personal spaceships and little booths where
our favourite musicians play us one-on-one virtual concerts. What
along the way, the science-fiction predictions got well out of
hand and we are all left with the comparatively boring state of
life and the pop charts in 1999.
Four Forty; gung-ho, ass-kicking electro-pop super-wizards who
are about to blow the cobwebs away from the drab, contemporary
morass of dance music once again. They did it when they proved
themselves one of the first dance acts to play guitars live, they
did it with last year's smash soundtrack single "Lost In
Space," and they will do it again with their new album, Gettin'
High On Your Own Supply.
ace CD's inception with the Jarre-esqu Intro, you know it's going
to be something special, and the guitar-toting super-dance-theme
"Stop The Rock" deserves recognition in its' own right
as a single. The high point is the title track, a dramatic Bond-esque
theme with maddened vocals and a quality that is sheer dream-like.
If there is to be a criticism, it is that they seem to lose their
way a little towards the end of the album, "Blackbeat,"
"Stadium Parking Lot" and "Yo Future" not
being up to the earlier, high standards.
This is undoubtedly
their finest moment to date, so there can only be one verdict:
Get high on their supply! It certainly makes a change from the
normal tedium out there.
