I confess to have had unreasonably high hopes in this album, and therefore to being partly responsible for my disappointment. Had an exceedingly hard time deciding what to actually make of it (It was SO not what I had expected!) and almost the same dilemma in finally facing the bitter fact that I Do Not Like This. (It was hard, for let's face it : unpredictability is precious in an artist!)
My final conclusion : Jake Shears & co had apparently decided to go clubbing here. Somehow they got lost along the way. Better luck next time.
