"The Way of Curve 1990-2004," Curve

Reviewed by Alex Slawson and Herman Snell

The wonderful world of Curve got its start in 1990, when Toni Halliday (former member of The Uncles) and Dean Garcia (former bassist for The Eurythmics) unleashed the "Blindfold" EP in the U.K.- it met with instant success. Their unique sound was deep with droney bass and distorted guitars while being anchored by Toni's sultry vocals, resulting in a dance floor friendly departure from their dream pop contemporaries. After numerous EP's and 3 LP's, Curve split in 1993 only to reform in 1998 with a more heavy "grit-pop" sound. Their catalogue continues to grow and is culminated in "The Way of Curve 1990-2004," a 2 disc set comprised of "official" releases (disc 1)and rare and unreleased tracks (disc 2). Given their influence on Alternative music (including the likes of Garbage et al), this is an essential release!
