Designing Heaven reviewed by Hiroyuki Mizukami

To me, the songs of the new album resemble their early works in The Human League, or the songs in Erasure's "I say I say I say" for which Martyn Ware worked; they seem to stress on the electric sound itself, rather than the melody. Although the sharpness of Glenn's voice and eventually the melody is to some extent diminished (blurred), every sound we can hear in every song is so strong and brilliant that I'm addicted to the new release. But what's the seeming hostility for America...?
