Hello Young Lovers
Label: In The Red
The legendary Mael Brothers sneak in their 20th album while everyone is distracted with New Wave youngsters. Why pay attention? It's an astounding opus featuring their usual caustic wit marching straight into an orchestra-meets-rock-guitars battle. For a song about doing nothing, "Dick Around" is gloriously busy with over-the-top Queen theatrics. A welcome reminder that Sparks never went out.
