human league Credo (digipak CD, £5.50)label: wall of sound
After a successful tour at the end of 2010, as well as a taster single (‘Night People’), The Human League kick off 2011 with the release of their ninth studio album, as brilliant a distillation of their ideas about pop and dancing, glamour and electronics as anything they have ever done. Produced by fellow Sheffield pop experimentalists I Monster, ‘Credo’’s style is a refinement of the approach first adopted by The Human League thirty years ago when they first led an experimental art-school insurgency of radical futuristic ideals into the Top Ten. ‘Credo’’s eleven tracks still bear all the classic League synth pop hallmarks but are as modern as the sharpest 21st century chart pop, including ecstatic album opener and single ‘Never Let Me Go’.
