This Is Forever ~ She Wants Revenge
It's a dance record which begs to be unleashed the new Goth generation, every song is sewn on to tried and true vampire beats, the vocals and lyrics injected with that Human League, Heaven17, Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy bold alpha bat-man speak that calls you to come forth. Yes it's a sound that's been resurrected from the dark giants that came before, yet that is what's so good about "This Is Forever"---like the bite of Dracula it's as instantly familiar as it is contagious.
It was at that boat in Paris--the one that has all the live shows and parties--and the sun was rising as the deep-fried leftovers of last nights party slowly emerged on deck, making their way towards cars, public transport, nearby... It was at that boat in Paris--the one that has all the live shows and parties--and the sun was rising as the deep-fried leftovers of last nights party slowly emerged on deck, making their way towards cars, public transport, nearby trees, ditches, or a curb to climb into, and all the wile as my zombie friends and I crossed onto land I could hear a beautiful song playing over the sound system to bid our crowd good-bye, but what was it, what was this blissful Soul Music? For years I thought that it must be the The Isley Brothers, or some forgotten gem from The Temptations, and then one night I heard it again, this time on my radio in Brooklyn, so waited breathlessly through 5 other songs and a station break before the Dj finally revealed the name of the f%@ing song and the band name which I never would have guessed--"Heaven 17"!!? Heaven 17 is a band I turned my back to long ago, never ever expecting to enjoy anything they might offer (the foolish thing to do) . Hmm...So what could I do, I when and picked up a copy of "The Best of Heaven 17" and was surprised at how much I loved their early songs, and lucky for me the song I'd heard in Paris was actually on the album. I tip my hat boys.
It's just a lovely soundtrack
One of the more unusual album cover images out there, and why not, it's this cover that got me to listen to Piano Magic, now I'm hooked.
No disappointment here, I was afraid it wouldn't be up to the standards of classic Human League albums.
