History Of Modern

History Of Modern by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD)
Released: Sep 2010
Label: Bright Antenna
OMD's late '80s crossover success in America ended up hurting their cred in the U.K., where they had been celebrated for their arty hybrid of experimental synth-pop and tuneful post-punk. Decades later, though, the duo is name-checked by all the best synth and electro acts. On this return, OMD are in fine form, going back to their signature sound while embracing their later knack for soaring choruses and undeniable hooks. This won't replace ...In the Dark, Architecture & Morality or Dazzle Ships as a top OMD album, but it's a set that the band can be proud of and old and new fans can embrace.
