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.
