iTunes Review

Book of Love’s fourth and final studio album, 1993’s Lovebubble, showcases a band headed in several different directions, and it's the only Book of Love album to feature vocal contributions from all four members. Democracy has its unintended consequences. Unlike the airy and free focus of their 1986 self-titled debut or the concentrated psychedelic touches of 1991’s Candy Carol, Lovebubble updates its sound with music that veers from the meticulously processed ticking of “Hunny Hunny” to the hip-hop bounce of “Chatterbox Pt. 1” and ambient sheen of “Chatterbox, Pt.2,” with a cover of Osibisa’s “Woyaya” sung to neighborhood crowd noise and David Bowie’s “Sound and Vision” played successfully to an abrasive edge. The group’s three-keyboard approach ensures that patterns and arpeggios are thrown together in furious and chaotic glee. “Trouble In A Bubble” manages to both tick away with notes quickly stroked yet with a sense of stereo placement and aural space that emphasizes the group’s veteran touch and keyboardist Ted Ottaviano’s ability to exert an overriding focus on this band of creative misfits.

*Scratches Head*

I absolutely loved BoL's first two albums, but the 3rd through 5th just seem senseless. They were a big part of my youth in the late 80's. :)

Different, But Still Classic BOL!!

It may not be their best album, but I give it an excellent rating because I love 9/14 songs from it. I especially love "Sound and Vision" (a David Bowie remake, to my surprise). "Flower In My Hand" is classic Book Of Love; "Enchanted" is sweet and haunting (just love it when Ottaviano uses harpsichord sound in synthesizer). "Sunday A.M.", "Happily Ever After", "Hunny Hunny", "Tambourine", and the "Chatterbox" tracks are all good. Different album from previous two, but still Book Of Love and their classic style that draws me to them.

Enchanted...

At least download a few tracks from this... they will grow on you, and get to you!

"Enchanted" is a masterpiece when you listen to it carefully--the craftsmanship details in this mysterious song are awesome. Craft--or witchcraft? BOL blurs the line with these prophetic images and hypnotic dance chants.

I would like to see a musical based on BOL's songs, they have great theatrical/visual potential for the stage! "Enchanted" would surely be in the show--maybe the title of the production!
