Johnny Marr and Bernard Sumner have a unique musical companionship. Both artists bred the '80s British music scene into pop candy delight thanks to Marr 's charming guitar hooks while fronting the Smithsand Sumnerwhose ingenuous lyrical poetry pushed New Order 's dance-oriented sound into the new wave mainstream. But since their musical collaboration began back inthe duo continues to make Make It Happen - Electronic - Twisted Tenderness for themselves, uninhibited by current norms and marketing success.
Twisted Tendernessthe band's third album, is certainly a vast improvement over their sophomore effort, 's Raise the Pressure. Twisted Tenderness steps back into Marr 's talented guitar work: carefree, a bit rollicking at times, but in classic Electronic fashion.
The obvious rock-laden riffs carry the typical synth-generated backdrops, and Sumner 's cheeky lyrics are stylish and breezy. Sumnerwho experienced writer's block during the mid-'90s and resorted to Prozac to break his creative blindness, isn't exquisitely sharp or wholly impressive when it comes to being a songwriter.
He's simple, and that's what makes Electronic and his work with his original band so alluring. But it's Marr 's maddening style that carries things along.
Songs like "Late at Night" and "Breakdown" fiercely showcase his spiraling guitar loops, Make It Happen - Electronic - Twisted Tenderness overshadowing Sumner 's storybook visions of love, deceit, passion, and desire. And what makes Twisted Tenderness so vibrant is how Electronic placated their lushness for more of a moody demeanor, mysteriously similar to the likes of U2 's electric distortion found on 's Pop. He is so underrated as a master player, but outlets like Electronic and his new band the Healers make it easy for him to fully deliver his great skills.
Electronic don't have Penthouse Serenade - Sarah Vaughan - Complete Musicraft Master Takes prove that they can write decent pop songs. Their musical brashness is expected, and Twisted Tenderness is their best yet. Marr and Sumner have already laid down the gravel in their previous musical lives -- Electronic is just an extra treat.
