Chasing Shadows in Q
Despite an initial chorus of critical acclaim, the Sheffield quartet lost their way in the early '80s and had passed their sell-by date with a couple of record companies before Robert Palmer's timely intercession secured the current deal with Island. Their music seems relaxed on the surface, but the unhurried piano on Cutting Edge and clear un-stylized vocals throughout belie a coruscating tension beneath; check Kevin Bacon's doomy bass riff on The Thought That Counts and Mik Glaisher's malevolent tom tom patterns looming like dark visions from the deeper recesses of the band's musical psyche. Eight group compositions reveal a compulsive, shadowy genius at work here.
