Album Review

It takes a perusal through the booklet to realize this isn't a long-lost Look album that has been gathering dust on some shelf for the preceding two decades. No, instead the set is comprised of nine new — or at least "newish" — songs; some date back to 1999, and "I Am the Beat" is appended as a bonus track. "I Am the Beat," of course, was the single that established the band's reputation, a number six U.K. smash back in 1980. The follow-up failed to follow in "I Am the Beat"'s soaring footsteps, and the group subsequently moved from MCA to the small Towerbell indie. When that label closed shop in 1983, the Look folded as well. But the intervening years seem to have barely touched the band, which continues to punch out perfect little pop/rock nuggets. The production glosses up the sound, while better instruments and improved musicianship add a further shine. The jubilant "Kicking Up Dust" and exhilarating "I Won't Commit Myself" are club-rock spectaculars, the latter in Stax style, the former in fabulous disco fashion. In contrast, the anthemic "United" shouts raucously from the football terraces, demanding consideration as a new singalong theme for England's team. "Family Affair" is nearly as infectious and, like "United," has a distinctive Small Faces flair. In fact, "I Am the Beat" nearly pales compared to these new hitworthy contenders, with the rest of the set almost as strong. A welcome return for this classic group of pop/rockers.
