MEDICINE
Pop Levi
(Border)

Despite Jonathan "Pop" Levi's protestations that this album was recorded by a version of himself in a different dimension, the ex Ladytron bassman has to take full responsibility for this glam-drenched electro "future rock" mess.

Inane lyrics are hardly a crime in pop but where great men can tug heartstrings with "she loves me, yeah, yeah, yeah", Levi manages to hide his disposable feelings behind school disco beats.

It's all just a little too fuzzed up to even be funny - especially from someone whose previous offerings of intelligent pop-whimsy showed both a propensity for amusement and ability.
