Dictaphone Blues immediately jumped out of student radio with undeniable pop rocket that had you remembering verses and words with a passing listen.

And thatís what this album is; a pop record that sound years beyond its age.

With songs like Lantern and Spooky Room, DB (hey thereís a sponsorship idea)really opened up their vaults to what they were willing to become, with perfect use of light monophonic synth to weave parts together.

Those who like their pop music stapled together with pinpoint precision and a slight bittersweet tinge need to have this in their collection.
