Okay, so Smalltown Boy was an absolutely HUGE hit from years ago, and I really enjoyed the music of it. A fantastic song. I don't think I've ever heard any of their other songs, though, so I listened to the samples here. Only 2 and 7 caught my attention enough to download them. I'm pleasantly surprised, both of them are good songs with interesting textures and catchy rythyms. Nice - maybe I'll have to come back for some of the others.

They Say All Music Guide

To say The Age of Consent is a great album of dance-oriented synth-pop music is to sell it extremely short; this is simply a great album, period. Jimmy Somerville’s soaring tenor may take some getting used to, but the songs, many of them dealing with homophobia and alienation (none more eloquently than “Smalltown Boy”), are compelling vignettes about the vagaries of life as a gay man. Cynics predisposed to dismissing entire genres of music based on trendiness or a limited appeal (“dance music is for dancing, not listening”) miss the point in lumping this in with more mindless forays into techno or neo-disco. As the Pet Shop Boys (the world’s greatest disco band) proved a few years later, you can have substantive content and wrap it up in a compelling, visceral, dance-oriented package. Few bands understood this better, or earlier, than Bronski Beat. – John Dougan
