Hurts - Happiness
The debut album from synthpop duo Hurts took its time to get me interested, but when it did, it turned into quite an entertaining listen. It does fall down here and there, especially at the end, but songs such as Better Than Love (the best on offer), Devotion (featuring Kylie Minogue) and Wonderful Life counteract that.
The sound doesn't change much, and that's one of the main criticisms I have for this album, but the songs are of a good standard. The only two I'm not keen on are Evelyn and Unspoken, but the others are decent.
No previous albums.
