Heaven 17, "Bigger Than America" - reviewed by Dan LeRoy
If only every 80s comeback was this successful. It's been nearly a decade since Heaven 17's last album, but the UK synth-pop trio has recaptured the sleek electronic sound that once made them a dance club staple. Most of the material here is strong, from the lush, romantic leadoff track "Dive," to the peppy dance cut "Freak;" the Motownish single "Designing Heaven" (presented in three different mixes) is one of the band's finest-ever tracks. And Glenn Gregory's supple baritone has never sounded better.
