CD Reviews

A triumphant return from the master of electronic pop.
04/13/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the best album John Foxx has released since his groundbreaking Metamatic in 1980. A brilliant fusion of electronica and classic pop melodies."
An angel in a ruined suit
N. A. Parry | 03/23/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"John Foxx, whether as creator of Ultravox or solo artist, has always been a pioneer. His warm and emotional songs are paired with a cold detachment, and resulting albums have always been seductive and inspirational because of this. After fourteen (FOURTEEN!) years in the wilderness, Shifting City brings it all back, redressed for the (then) nineties. The same obsessions with ruined and decayed cities, ghosts and shadows, and lush english wildernesses have now been fused with rhythmic, almost dance-like grooves and slower, smokey, more evocative pieces. As a whole, 'Shifting City' embraces all emotions and styles in a way that even his past work has been unable to do. This is essential to everyone with imagination, and he promises many more albums in the near future. If they are anything like this, then they are already highly recommended."
Transition Complete
C. Smith | Edinburgh | 10/20/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"At last John Foxx, with Louis Gordon makes the transistion between metal machine music and traditional music. Having flirted with the use of feedback, with Ultravox! with their final Lp "Systems Of Romance" Foxx matches, neigh surpases previous releases with the industrial "The Noise" the beatlesesque "Shifting City" and the breezy, "An ocean we can Breathe" All excellent and certainly worth the money, you'll not buy a better CD of this genre."
