CAUSE AND EFFECT

THE SUNRISE EP

The Sunrise EP sneaks up on you, covers your eyes and whispers into your ear "you will love me." And you will. The new offering from Rob and Keith is quite different, but also quite good. The songs are deceptively simple, moody but optimistic. On headphones, it is nothing short of amazing. They have returned from several years off and have effortlessly, or so it seems, outclassed and outdone just about every "modern" synthpop (an oxymoron?) band around. They've also managed to reinvent themselves yet again, creating a sound that, while not totally new, is definitely far from the sonic traps that most bands fall into. As you groove along, you can almost hear them in the background yelling "Why sound like Depeche Mode when you can sound like Everything But The Girl gone, well... MORE pop? "The hints of guitar on a few tracks help too, reminding those of us who loved 97's Innermost Station (the rest of you simply have no taste) of how wonderful these guys can be. Few bands can hang on to the past yet be so different at the same time. Cause And Effect are one.The only thing that holds it back is its length. By the time you're really getting into it, it's over. And the remixes don't help much. Only the Halou mix of Into The Light did anything for me, the others were overly repetitive and unnecessary. This deserved to be a full album. Maybe next time around.

Highlights: Long Way Down, Vicarage Road

I am not impressed easily, I like many types of music and there are only a handfull of artists I would give a rating this high to. Iím giving the sunrise ep a 10 because I honestly could not have hoped for anything better. Top notch songs and top notch production from start to finish. This is pop music at itís finest. Not "synth" pop or "boyband" pop or any other "label" pop, just pop music that grabs you by the heart and soul and makes you feel good to be alive. C&E have done that.

I did enjoy the remixes on the cd, even the Andre Oscure mix of sunrise but I am not considering those in my rating, to me they are just an added bonus. Of course I would have loved a full-length album but this cd is labeled as an ep, therefore I will rate it as one. A damn good one.

Iíve been a fan since 93, and have been eagerly awating this release. Iím not disappointed at all ... after a few listens the songs really grow on you. My personal favorites are Long Way Down and Stay, but that could change. I know Robís a prolific songwriter. This is certainly not the last weíll hear from them. Perhaps a full length later in the year? One can only hope!

CAuse & Effect still is playing great music! They have a very unique style and have really matured over the years. This band is very talented.
