Black Box Recorder - Passionoia
Label: One Little Indian
Format: CD


"Classy" third album from Black Box Recorder finds them "as always razor sharp in their observations on modern culture"

Black Box Recorder return with their third album. Since their last album, they have changed labels, and vocalist Sarah Nixey has now become a Mum with a baby girl called Ava. She is married to fellow Black Box Recorder member John Moore. Both John and former Auteurs frontman Luke Haines still write all the material, and on this they are, as always, razor sharp in their observations on modern culture. On this we have tales about wanting to be ‘The New Diana’, ‘These are the Things’, which is about the way we keep in touch and communicate, will meanwhile possibly be Black Box Recorder’s second hit single. There is a tribute to ‘Andrew Ridgeley’, where Luke and John take the mickey out of Sarah for liking George Michael. “G.S.O.H. Q.E.D.’meanwhile looks at the modern state of today’s dating system i.e. one inch columns in the local paper. This is on the whole a classy album, but it doesn’t sound indie at all. If anything, it sounds quite mainstream in its delivery. It looks though like Black Box Recorder’s aim is to corrupt the youth of today.
