hercules and love affair - blue songs

less gayness, more electronics.... that's what i'd say about the new hercules and love affair album in one sentence. and no, this is not because antony does not sing on the new record, but it's because not all the new songs are packed in a "70s gay disco" package, like on the debut album. but then again.... hercules and love affair don't sound that unique anymore. for sure, it's a great dance album and of course we all get ready in our silver dresses and suits for a heavy night at one of their live gigs, but... at least to me, the album sounds replaceable by any other well produced dance album. to make it clear.... it's a great record and i like it after the first spins, but i miss a bit of uniqueness there.
