6/10 Clinton Staff review, 09 November 2012

I spent last Sunday morning watching a re-run of the previous night’s X-Factor.  It was an eye opener certainly, there was a lad on there with really neat hair who butchered a Beyonce tune to an inch of its life. My ears were bleeding, my heart was bleeding for him until all four judges (including Sir Gary of Barlow I hasten to add) stood up and each wept their appreciation at what was purportedly the best thing they’d seen...ever.

Prince Rama have headed off in a slight X Factor direction with this newie which manages to sound like Roxette playing in a half empty aircraft hanger. It’s kind of hollowed out Eurovision, a big blustery mess of ‘80s girl pop, shot through with cavernous production which makes every vocal inflection sound out of tune. This, apparently, is not what we signed up to. Their previous efforts were along the Kate Bush/Pocahaunted route but this time they have created a fake concept album in which they pretend to be a bunch of different bands who died during the apocalypse, all seemingly with the same intent of sounding like Toto Coelo in a particularly off-key soundcheck misery.

They occasionally get it right:-  ‘So Destroyed’ is a pretty fine pop tune with lots of chanted mantra-ish vocals which work really well when layered up. At its best it’s sort of like Zola Jesus meets early Bananarama. Don’t get me wrong - there are some really good bits of odd ‘80s pop in here...but not too many.
