The music of super-producer Hopkins continually leaves me if not cold but lukewarm. Its the calculated sterile sound of a man who knows he can pretty much do anything and people are going to like it.
He’s good, he’s talented, he produced fucking Coldplay for Gods sake but a bit of soul and a tug at the ol’ heartstrings? Maybe not so much. This is a nice enough track, starts out rather unspectactularly and I wasn’t overly sure of the lady’s voice at first but its starting to win me over by the time the chorus arrives. Can’t argue with the mans production chops, some nice tweaks before it fizzles out.... and fizzle it does. It just goes away.
Over on the flip, fellow big people Moderat have a go, starting slowly they build up a wierdly distorted mix so much so I’m checking the needle for dust. Its all a bit Ulrich Schnauss style everythings-ok-tronica with a few stadium techno moves thrown in. Any execs out there need to be getting that middle section breakdown on a car advert right away.
