Computerclub - Electrons and Particles

It opens like every other band you’ve heard in the recent proliferation, let alone the ‘Eighties-influenced new-wave’ is purports itself to be. Not that that’s a bad thing – it’s just that thinking you’ve got something to make you stand out amongst the endless other bands doing the same thing isn’t exactly a great start.Computerclub’s ‘Electrons & Particles’ is all too derivative, in short. Singer Paul Hampton comes across way too Tom Smith, and the repetitive rest/beat crotchets do nothing to assuage the unoriginality. It’s like Bloc Party without the imagination. Someone stop really this laziness getting any bigger than it is already, more broadly speaking.
