O.K., Im to be a big fan of Portal. I've got a few of his early lo-fo home recording efforts that I've really enjoyed but I wasn't aware of how prolific his output has been until I began reviewing this e.p. It would appear that Portal have now returned from a brief hiatus to present us with 'Options'. This seems to be a concerted effort to evolve beyond previous efforts and sees Portal collaborate with Piano Magic's Glen Johnson, Epic 45s Ben Holton and Lorraine Lelis of Mahogany. The result is pure New Order, a surprisingly commercial move but works beautifully, invoking those classic electro 12" dance mixes that would rock the hacienda to the break of dawn throughout the late 80s. Each of the vocal contributions really helps enhance Scott Sinfield's subtle electronic synth-pokery and takes Portal's recording output to new heights both in terms of personal musical development and commercial appeal. The Glen Johnson remix is also pretty sweet. Definitely worth a look.
