World At A Glance: 1988
TK or SR Davis | Roseville, MN USA | 06/12/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Some people were just born in the wrong place and at the wrong time: this New York quartet's first LP reveals a deep desire to be British dance poseurs. As singer David Ilku affects a mild finishing school accent, Michael Lawrence shoots off impressive guitarisms that would sound at home on an Ultravox record; guest keyboardists (including producer Chris Lord Alge) fill in the stylistic gaps. (For credibility's sake, drummer Doug Bowne was a Lounge Lizard.) While inarguably accomplished, World at a Glance, with its echoes of Duran Duran, Simple Minds, Japan, Bill Nelson, U2 and others, is a little redundant. However their music is definately worth listening too. If you appreciate the Indie Sceen, this is one group you should take a little time listening too.
