Dangerous Dreams

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Bill Pearis
How many more bands will the current post-punk resurgence allow? It looks like one more at least, as Los Angeles counters New York City's and the U.K.'s weighty entries with Moving Units, another group featuring the young, the beautiful, and the angular. Yes, this trio initially seem to follow the recipe entirely by the book -- spiky guitars, disco dance beats, and vocals that are alternately shouted and sung. But there's no denying Dangerous Dreams, one of the strongest debuts since Franz Ferdinand.

How many more bands will the current post-punk resurgence allow? It looks like one more at least, as Los Angeles counters New York City's and the U.K.'s weighty entries with Moving Units, another group featuring the young, the beautiful, and the angular. Yes, this trio initially seem to follow the recipe entirely by the book -- spiky guitars, disco dance beats, and vocals that are alternately shouted and sung. But there's no denying Dangerous Dreams, one of the strongest debuts since Franz Ferdinand. Like those well-dressed Scots, Moving Units realize a groove is not a song and give equal importance to catchy melodies and lyrics that survive close scrutiny. They're well aware, too, of the fleeting scene in which they've been lumped, as addressed on the winking "Going for Adds." The high meta-levels of the lyrics, however, don't make up for too many songs with similar tempos and arrangements, leading to a mild case of Hi-Hat fatigue. It's when they shake up the formula -- as on the synth-heavy "Anyone," the brooding "Scars," and the album's best track, "Submission" -- that Moving Units prove their worth on the overcrowded dance floor. While not entirely distinctive, Dangerous Dreams holds great promise for things to come.
