NOW: HURTS – HAPPINESS NOW (2010)
Who doesn’t want a “Wonderful Life”? This import cd is so gothically romantic. The very 80’s production value and strong voice make you feel like you are floating to a castle somewhere in a “illuminated” palace. The two boys even add Kylie on vocals on “Devotion”. This music is as grand as you get. The pop element and catchy tunes bring you back to the days of youth. It is time for large scale production and escapism. It won’t Hurt to try this music… you will feel Happiness.
OMG, Remember that name? It was very hard to compare Hurts to another singer from the past. I opened up my vault and quickly my eye ran to Paul Young. All I remember about him is his distinct beautiful grand voice and the over the top 80’s production. This was it! This works for the now and then. I always love a good homage!!
