into its retro saturated components, Mr Jones Machine's debut album "New
Wave" should appeal as much to me as Kramer's antics in the now DVD-treated,
genius series "Seinfeld" or the basic beauty of the female form,
but when put together the most important ingredient is missing. The songs!
I'm absolutely positive that this album will be praised on most sites due to
its heavy 1981 John Foxx/Human League vibe, but it is my firm conviction
that the band has wrestled too much with the sound to find time to write
the songs they are capable of.
