MERCHANDISE After The End (4AD)
With every release, Merchandise seem to re-invent themselves. From the Morrissey-influenced gloom of Children Of Desire to the lengthier, rockier pieces on Totale Night, the band have moved on with each album. This one is apparently where they turn into a pop band, and tracks like Telephone and Little Killers seem to indicate that theyve pulled it off. A different style, but a really enjoyable album.
