1001 Albums You Must Hear (and Blog about) Before You Die

My attempt to blog all of the entries from the book 1001 Albums to Hear Before You Die

481. Sulk – The Associates

Brief Background: Sulk is the second studio album by Sottish synthpop band The Associates. The band used many unorthodox recording techniques in the process of making the album. It was recorded and released in 1982.

What I think: I have to say, I’m becoming a bit tired of the synthpop stuff. It bums me out a little because I always felt like there was probably so much more to the genre that I didn’t know about. The truth is, I probably already know of the standouts and the rest is just not all that interesting. This is especially true for a recording that tried so many experimental techniques, to me, it all just sounds pretty standard. Not bad, just ho hum. I do have to give them credit for starting the album off with an instrumental when vocals are such a huge part of the rest of the songs.


Do I agree or disagree with the writers as to this being an album you must listen to? Nothing to see here, let us move on.
