It's not unusual for the most unfashionable of bands to produce the most satisfying music. Stripped of self-consciousness, the members of Clor are more likely to be seen sporting Peter Storm raincoats than Tommy Hilfiger outerwear and their music is similary removed from populist conceits. Their sound could be influenced by the wiry pop of XTC but equally so the unfairly overlooked New Musik and it is with the latter that they share an equal passion for slightly cheesy keyboard-driven tunes. This overtly pop outlook naturally throws up a number of winners, best evidenced on the opening three tracks. 'Outlines' crystallises their gifts: "eccentric" off-key vocals, a splendid tune and an endearingly simple lyric ("Each of us in special in our own unique way"). Slightly disappointingly, quality control dips as the quirkiness remains but the tunes become less memorable. At least they pull a veritable rabbit out of the hat with 'Magic Touch'; a shameless pastiche of the vintage Prince sound and 'Goodbye' is a sweet finale. Although not quite the finished article, Clor have successfully shown that genuine charm should always win out over image.
