The Artist/Album: Chris & Cosey, Songs of Love & Lust (Conspiracy International, 2011)
A Short Review: “This is seduction!” wrote one reviewer when this moonlit masterpiece emerged from C & C’s music factory in 1984. That pretty much nails it, especially now that Chris Carter’s personally remastered the record and pressed it to a limited slab of gray vinyl. For some reason, this record makes us want to wear leather pants in the middle of summer, all while declaring, “Synth-pop is dead! Long live synth-pop!” This is a good thing; a very good thing.
