Be Bop Deluxe - Modern Music (1976)
The fourth album from this British band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of keyboards, bass, drums, percussion, guitars and vocals.#
I have reviewed their previous three albums and you can find these reviews somewhere else in this blog.
This is the final Be Bop Deluxe album I am reviewing. They released one more album, but I have not got that album. Neither am I going to pursue this album either.
Be Bop Deluxe is a strange band with a quirky name. An almost mythical band.
The cover art-work does not offer much of a mythical band feeling. And the music is not that quirky either. Their status as a mythical, quirky band only covers their first three albums and the band name.
The music is pretty much straight forward pop/rock from the 1970s with a large degree of David Bowie influences.
The songs on this forty-three minutes long album is straight forward and melodic.
The songs are really good too. The music is a bit intricate too and the guitars get some good space to stretch it's legs in. The vocals is also good.
I am not a fan of pop/rock. This though is a good album and one to check out.
