Secondhand Daylightthe second Magazine album, sounds like it must have been made in Tem Dó - Ana Lucia* - Canta Triste dead of winter. You can imagine the steam coming out of Howard Devoto 's mouth as he projects lines like "I was cold at an equally cold place," "The voyeur will realize this is not a sight for his sore eyes," "It just came to pieces in our hands," and "Today I bumped into you again, I have no idea what you want.
From start to finish, this is a showcase for Formula 's chilling but expressive keyboard work. Given more freedom to stretch out and even dominate on occasion, Formula seems to release The Thin Air - Magazine - Secondhand Daylight many demons as Devotowhether it is through low-end synthesizer drones or violent piano vamps. Detached tales of relationships damaged beyond repair fill the album, and the band isn't nearly as bouncy as it is on Real Life or The Correct The Thin Air - Magazine - Secondhand Daylight of Soap -- it's almost as if they were instructed to play with as little physical motion as possible.
The drums in particular sound brittle and on the brink of piercing the ears. Despite the sub-zero climate, the lack of dance numbers, and the shortage of snappy melodies, the album isn't entirely impenetrable. It lacks the immediate impact of Real Life and The Correct Use of Soapbut it deserves just as much recognition for its compellingly sustained petulance.
