'Life Is Easy', hey? If this album title is a statement that's supposed to endear Bright Light Bright Light to potential audiences, I'm not sure I'm part of that target market. An appearance from Elton John and the phrase "strong support from Graham Norton on Radio 2" continue making me feel like I've got the wrong address and walked into a stranger's house party by mistake.   Mr Light Bright Light writes pretty and heartfelt tunes, he's got a clear and precise voice which suits the aesthetic and a cool Pet Shop Boys-ish can tell the duo are a big influence here, although in terms of originality and subtlety Brian Cox's old band D:Ream might be a closer comparison. However while the 'Boys are cold and sardonic, there's something strangely sterile about this album, as if all the attention has been paid to the way it sounds and none to the songwriting. The lyrics are often trite and cringe-worthy even without direct comparison to a genius wordsmith like Tennant, leaving the songs plodding in bloated overpolished circles. Some of the 21st century pop production touches get my hackles up too, particularly in 'Good Luck'. I'm sure there are people out there who'll like this but to my ears it's a cloying reboot of ideas that have already been much better realised.
