Grand National, 'A Drink & a Quick Decision' (Recall)

5
Drink and a Quick Decision
Critical Mass
Label: Recall

by Lindsey Thomas

Like a lot of smooth, low-key electro, this London group's second studio album is pleasant but rather uneventful. They've obviously studied their '80s influences, and the songs are full of fastidious detail: "By the Time I Get Home There Won't Be Much of a Place for Me," with its infectious synth groove and distant, chiming piano chords, offers a particularly good likeness of Thomas Dolby. And as a change of pace from all the keyboard pop, "Going to Switch the Lights On" adopts a loping reggae beat that honors the Police.
