Only When I'm Dancing, transports us to the golden age of disco music, when the dance floor was full of excitement, melancholy, elegance and majestic arrangements (something that Moore notably excels at). This time, the change of sound comes with a change in singer. The angelic voice of Maddie Dobie makes way for the elegance of Luci Ashbourne. Her mature, velvety voice is perfect for these sensual songs, many of which are aimed directly at the dance floor. When Joe began working on this new album, he imagined Karen Carpenter singing along with the music of Benny and Björn. Never Gonna Let You Go begins like a tribute to Barry White. Love Has Taken Hold Of My Heart has echoes of ABBA. Elsewhere we hear Pet Shop Boys, Bee Gees, Tina Charles and Isaac Hayes. A new album, a new surprise, a new pleasure.
