Synopsis

Album Description
As a British dance-pop outfit, The Beloved found commercial success with Happiness both on and off the dance floor. Validated by the hit "Hello," they were able to configure the vocal-dance scene for chart consumption. Combining electric rhythms, orchestral slams, guitar leads, and sultry singing, The Beloved secure a niche that sounds like a happier version of New Order or Depeche Mode. Softened by wandering lilts and melodic hooks, the emotional feedback seeps through, impelled by the early-'90s pop conventions that brought them onto the scene.

Happiness Is The Beloved
Alan Caylow | USA | 06/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After their 1987 indie-label debut, "Where It Is," the British group the Beloved, led by singer/songwriter Jon Marsh, changed musical direction and went into the world of synth-pop, making a considerable splash in 1990 with their second album, "Happiness," and it's name-dropping dance hit, "Hello." Simply put, this is a great album, with great catchy tunes, solid hooks, rhythms, and Marsh's smooth lead vocals. It's also the group's best album to date. Besides the memorable hit "Hello," there's also the beautiful "Time After Time" & "Don't You Worry," the incredibly sensual "The Sun Rising," the uplifting pop of "I Love You More," and the killer grooves of "Wake Up Soon." A true "feel-good" album if there ever was one, the Beloved's "Happiness" is a gem. Buy it right now!"
