Album Review

After 1988's diverse Hard Machine went virtually unnoticed by the pop market, it wasn't much of a surprise that Stacey Q returned to more straightforward dance sounds on Nights Like This. While the context here isn't as varied as that of its predecessor, loyal club fans were given an ample selection of savvy underground grooves that may have proven not to be timeless, but were more trend-setting than trend-conscious. Other major-label dance acts of the time like the Cover Girls, Sweet Sensation and Expose veered between the dance floor and pop radio frequently on their releases, but Stacey Q for the most part dived knee-deep into the house, freestyle and techno subgenres that were permeating the scene on this album.
