Album Review “R∆” by Simon Curtis


So last weekend, advance ticket buyers of Simon Curtis' upcoming EQ Live show on May 14th were treated to an exclusive first listen of the pop maestro's new album "R∆" in which the man himself introduced each song from his own bedroom in LA - unmade bed and all.  

"R∆" still remains slightly unfinished, un-mastered and some of the tracks we mention below may not even end up on the final track-listing.  Needless to say, what we heard, we very much loved and the listening party experience only heightened the excitement further around Simon's new release and upcoming London debut performance at EQ Live on May 14th.

EQ's Marc Ridley summed up his thoughts on “R∆” after the listening party and here is what he thought about one of pop's most anticipated new albums of 2011.  

Make sure to follow Marc on Twitter @marcridley.

A few tickets are still available for EQ Live with Simon Curtis, Andrea Lewis and Ro Danishei on May 14th - sponsored by Kinect for Xbox 360.  Make sure to check out the Upcoming EQ Live Events section to get your tickets for the pop extravaganza!

“R∆”by Simon Curtis Review

If you were at our exclusive listening party for Simon Curtis’ brand new album, you’ll already have a pretty good idea of just how good “R∆” is. But now it’s time for EQ’s review of the release and as you are fully aware,  we’ve been waiting for this one.

"8bit Heart", the debut album, set out a mission statement for the Simon Curtis project. It was undeniably pop, beyond competition in terms of electro brilliance, and delivered a perfect introduction to an as-yet-untapped source of songwriting creativity. “R∆” always had to be something more, and it is. It’s more refined, more perfected, yet still leaves you feeling like you’ve discovered something new and uniquely brilliant.

“Chip in Your Head” is a staunchly robotic opener, with a whispery spoken-word intro which gives way to a strident, self-confident anthem. It’s an early album highlight and shows you the best of what Simon can offer: the perfect match of quality vocals and effortless electronic pop production.
