Although some worried Elly Jackson might not rebound after former collaborator Ben Langmaid left on strained terms, those concerns seem unwarranted -- her roller-rink synth-pop anthems are warmer than ever. Jackson's vocals avoid falsetto tendencies this time out, and sometimes bring to mind the goofy pleasures of club-rat-era Madonna. But the woman boasting the best hair in pop since Flock Of Seagulls isn't all smiles: The behemoth synth riff of "Silent Partner" steamrolls through a seven-minute kiss-off to a certain former associate. "You're not a part of me/ All I need is silence" -- ouch.
