Blancmange, Commuter 23 CD

My copy came through the post. It’s a nicely produced object. I’m glad I went for it rather than just a download. Although, I would’ve like it if they’d put it on vinyl too.

Listening to the new Blancmange Album, ‘Commuter 23’

It came out yesterday and I listened to the whole thing whilst I was out and about. I think that this is an album that is going to need a lot more listening. A lot more consideration. It isn’t just a bunch of electronic pop songs. There’s some deep stuff in there that requires careful and diligent listening, not just consuming.

It’s difficult to find time to do that kind of listening, but, as I’ve been a fan of Blancmanage for a very long time now, it’ll be worth it I’m sure. So when I’ve done that. I’ll let you know what I really think.

I have to say that I wasn’t looking forward to this story. It just didn’t appeal to me at all. However, I got it, and listened to it yesterday, and I have to say that I was really impressed. It was a great story. A real caper! I enjoyed the whole thing and I’d say that it’s probably one of the best since Big Finish started this series of Torchwood audios.
