Record Review: Groove Armada – “Black Light”

Black Light, London-based Groove Armada‘s sixth album, takes to a different sound than on previous releases, adopting 80’s synthesized pop as opposed to the dancehall experiments of “Superstylin‘” or old-school grooves of “At the River.” Both “Cards to Your Heart” and “Paper Romance” are album standouts. Most of the tracks are highly synthesized with up-beat dance rhythms, complemented by some stellar vocal turns from a diverse stable of singers, including Roxy Music’s Bryan Ferry and original Pop Idol Will Young. Overall, Black Light is a good listen when you’re out on a Friday night. – Keenen Green
