"Fort Lauderdale return with their third, and most ambitious album yet. And mark our words, this isn't Time is of the Essence part deux. Those of you who have checked out the two singles to be pulled from this album so far, 'Rock'n'Roll', and 'The Chilling Place' will have some idea of what to expect: think T-Rex meets Super Furry Animals. But even those singles won't prepare you for the sheer chutzpah on display. Imagine if Ray Davies instead of Jack Nicholson had taken over as caretaker of the Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. Then you might get some idea of the eccentric genius that lurks within Pretty Monster. From lo-fi ('Insane Overdrive') to neo-classical torch ballads ('Prey To The Stars') to jagged shards of psychedelic-pop ('As A Boy') to sleazy disco ('Sexy Creature') it spills over with classic pop songs whilst at the same time evoking the sense of two minds unravelling in spectacular surroundings. Fans of everyone from Roxy Music to Super Furry Animals to The Animals will be enchanted."
