Let the Good Times Roll
Label: XL Recordings
Forget about warming up: Night Works cuts to the club early on with the bongo-driven "Shining Through." "We Meet at Last" starts the surreal, it-may-be-time-to-go-home phase, before "All Night Long" provides a second wind. But it's the lush "Love Story" that's absolutely essential here -- its warm pianos and dreamy synths create a cozy womb of blissful suspension.
