For one thing, its not dirty-sounding at all. Sayonara, sense of foreboding.
As the lead track Little White Doves makes perfectly clear with beats of shiny, sunny optimism, this disc equally aims to put a smile on your face as it does to move your feet. Subsequent songs live up to this promise of positive pop, now more radio-friendly reliant on vocal melodies than slinky grooves. Weekend is a buoyant high point; only Pressure pushes the clubby beat too far into house territory for these ears.
Electric Love caps off with an instrumental wind-down in Round and Round, serving as a nice decompression from its energetic antecedents. And speaking of instrumentals, OM Records has issued Electric Love in a two-disc package, the latter chunk being an all-instrumental version of the album proper, track for track. As nice as those sounds sound, these songs were crafted as deliberate, radio-friendly singles, rather than something by which to drop E, so go for disc one as a pick-me-up, and disc two only when you need aural wallpaper.
