Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Tabloid makes a very convincing neo-glam music on this album. The singer’s vocals have a good mix of attitude and sensitivity.

Appetite details the seedy side of life in a big city with élan and wit. The ghost of Bowie hovers over the proceedings.

The Junkie Violin Player works off its title by being suitably quirky and having a Marc Almond-like sense of drama.

Man on the Floor is another fine example of the bands sense of style. It has a cabaret-ish swagger and some stunning vocals. The lyrics concern the darker side of life and it seems heartfelt.

Frozen Lake is a neat exit point, a faintly ghostly ballad with harmonies to die for. It makes a fitting end to an accomplished little album that suggests the band will make more good music in the future.
