Mesh - A Perfect Solution
Synthpop, Pop It's been three years since we got an album release from Mesh and with this new release called 'A Perfect Solution' the band have managed to get even more pop rock than before. If you want to hear the difference, listen first to 'Fragile' or 'The Point At Which It Falls Apart' and then to this new album. You will probably hear some difference even between 'Crash' and 'A Perfect Solution' since Mesh is clearly heading to a more mainstream sound. More pop, less electro.

Still Mesh delivers, as always, great pop tunes and catchy melodies. "If We Stay Here", "Everything I Made", "Is It So Hard"... heck, all the tunes will surely get to you. Even though I will never fall in love in this album as much as I did with their first albums, it's still a worthy album in the discography.

There's one thing though, that I really can't manage. Between almost every track there is an instrumental ending until the next track begins. I believe that the intention is to make it as a transition to the next track, but in my world this is like commercial breaks during a movie on TV. It cuts the immersion and even if they serve a purpose as some time over to get some popcorn or visit the men's room, it does not work in the same way on an album when you have to endure the transition every five minutes. I don't need popcorn that often.
