Review by Michael Morgan
“Pure Imagination,” the song from the 1971 classic film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, is a euro techno spin of the classic Willy Wonka song. The synth maestro pulls off his version using carefully drawn industrial-sounding synthesizers that whiz, ping and whine throughout. Perhaps a disco mash-up with “The Candy Man” would have been an appropriate touch on 24 Shades? Nonetheless, the cover song choice is a smart and whimsical selection, and will definitely serve as a fan favorite on this album.
