is a band bound to be compared with Erasure. As things are now though,
I tend to feel that's an unfair comparison. Unfair to Intuition. Erasure,
well on their way into oblivion as a result of their latest albums (I
still find them OK, but they didn't do well commercially), are still dear
to me personally, but Intuition reinvents and updates the original Erasure
formula in a most refreshing manner. The vocal styling bears no trace
of annoying tone deafness or false sounding accents, the musical foundation
is not overly retro (mind you, people will still label this retro) and
the production flows beautifully. More importantly, "Further"
is an intensely emotional ride for a synthpop nut like me, keeping me
on my toes, drooling like one of Pavlov's mutts, all the way to the end.
This is twelve fantastic sounding songs on a debut album many surely,
involuntarily, will miss in the flow of so-so and downright crappy electropop
