Boomkat Product Review:
It's always a pleasure to have a John Foxx record slip into my review pile... I still remember as if it were yesterday when my dad handed me a copy of Foxx's 1980 classic 'Metamatic' telling me it was something 'I might like'. I had never heard anything like it before, these pristine almost alien sounding vocals layered over the darkest of analogue synthesized landscapes, a track like 'Underpass' for example in my opinion has never been bettered. 'Sideways' is Foxx's latest collaborative effort with Louis Gordon and erupted from the same sessions as 'From Trash', and apparently deals with the heady theme of science fiction. To my mind though it simply sounds like classic John Foxx - all the ingredients are still there in droves, cyclic electronic percussion and sheets of analogue synthwork all underpinning Foxx's matchless vocals. I don't think it's just because I'm a huge Foxx fan that I can still appreciate this, he sounds great and the songs, while not being incredibly modern or inventive, are there to show off his talents as a singer. Recent live appearances were opened by the track 'And the World Slides Sideways' (seen here opening the album) and this sets the scene for what to expect, classic electro-pop music done slightly differently, touched by the hand of a master. includes a second disc of bonus tracks including Jori Hulkkonen remixes and a live recording from Cargo, London in 2008. Recommended.
