Considered a one-hit wonder here in the States (with personal karaoke favorite “Don’t You Forget About Me”), SM have been secretly putting out excellent albums since then. Their new one is packed with absolutely fantastic power-pop songs that sound uncannily like U2, but with a little more synth vibe.

“One Step Closer” is a brilliant song that everyone should listen to fifteen times a day, and “Cry,” “Spaceface,” “Disconnected,” and “The Floating World” are winners too. The only misses are the two ballads “Face In The Sun” and “Cry Again.” Otherwise, this lovechild of Joy Division and U2 have delivered another stunning pop record. Don’t you forget about Simple Minds!! (I know, I’m hilarious.)
