by: Thompson Twins

With Queer, the Thompson Twins began incorporating current dance trends, particularly the dense, pyschedelic Manchester sound of the Happy Mondays. It is an ambitious effort, but it isn't entirely successful -- the group doesn't work the groove as effectively as the Madchester groups, nor do they come up with a catchy dance-pop tune. Instead, you can hear the group work to re-establish themselves as artists. Queer is an an admirable attempt, but that doesn't make it a good listen. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
