Review

It's easy to feel a sense of trepidation when bands announce a new album after years away from the release schedule. When that band is synth pop, minimal and new wave pioneers Soft Cell, and the album is their fourth, Cruelty Without Beauty, coming some 18 years after its predecessor, those concerns are heightened. A stellar legacy is such a terrible thing to waste for the sake of trying out new ideas.

Arriving in 2002, Cruelty... marked a fittingly strong reformation for the band at the time. The version of Frankie Valli's 'The Night' works better than anyone could have predicted, 'Together Alone' is dark dancefloor opera at its best. 'All Out of Love' is disco punk goodness, and the infectious electro-pop-funk of 'God Shaped Hole' is a marvel. That's before we come to supercharged tech-trance on 'Somebody, Somewhere, Sometime'. Put simply, if you missed it then this red vinyl gatefold package needs attention now.
