Cathedral Park - Dubstar (2) - Goodbye (CD, Album)

The second half of the album fades into twee pop, without the sparkle that makes each individual song stand out. While certainly pleasant, there's nothing that unexpectedly grabs your attention. This CD is a seamless final addition to the body of work typified by the Cure's "Disintegration" cross-bred with "There is a light that never goes out" or "Please Please Please let me get what I want" from the Ever-Beloved Smiths. Fine, clean work that brings elements of the last two decades of electronica to the deserved fore while all the while sidestepping the worst excesses of the early 80s adolescent "I'm afraid of Girls" techo-pop as well as the equisitely ethereal, untouchable sounds as typified by the Cocteau twins, among other late contributors.

This stands alongside "get lost" by Magnetic Fields as one of the ever-fewer holdouts for the glories of pure GlumPop. Excites and Depresses! See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. Really nice album with various tempos and styles. Plus the lady in question who sings throughout the album never sounds boring or tiring. Good album but not as good as the previous one Disgraceful. No comments. Report abuse. A Masterpiece.

And their B-sides are worth listening. Especially Song Nro 9, almost the most sad pop song ever. Maybe Depeche Modes Sister of Night is sadder. There's a problem loading this menu right now.

If you're a Dubstar fan, I highly recommend acquiring the British versions of Disgraceful and Goodbye. While the US version is I hate to admit it a fine way to check out the band, I really do recommend buying the UK versions of both albums to get the full flavor of Dubstar's wonderful sometimes haunting pop.

The singles "I Will Be Your Girlfriend" and "Cathedral Park" are immediately catchy, with the former's wittiness and the latter's horns, while "No More Talk" effectively conveys the weariness of love.

But there are other surprises to be found as well: "Polestar" has a fascinating iciness to it and is much more ethereal than the rest of the album. But not all the tracks are successful: while "It's Over" goes for a sadder, moodier vibe, it doesn't quite make it.

Verified Purchase. I bought this ages ago, probably for one or two songs but it wasn't bad, that I remember. Pop a go-go. I love this cd in the background while I am working at the office, studying at home or painting. I was digging around my cd collection when I came across Dubstar's "Goodbye" cd.

I'm lying to you now that dignity's mine Around me the trails of damage I can't fight with memories I can't find I will go and I'll find some way Believe in the pain with a glass in my hand The walls that surround me The sickness inside Are all that consume me now And I can't fight with memories I can't find I will go and I'll find some way Believe in the pain with a glass in my hand The sound of morning rings in my mind It's easy to blame me most of the time I will go and I'll find some way Believe in the pain with a glass in my hand The sound of morning rings in my mind It's easy to blame me most of the time.
