STYLE: Pop RATING OUR PRODUCT CODE: 21752-CAS2758 LABEL: Independent FORMAT: Cassette Album

Another intriguing release from the techno-pop music and studio wiz who, when not playing with Strangely Normal, is making solo albums that seem to absorb influences like blotting paper. There's some excellent stuff here, power pop ("A Different Drum"), a jokey return to Oldfield's "Tubular Bells" and, biggest surprise of all, some house style rhythms on the instrumental "I Should Cocoa", which show our hero is still listening to what's out there. The snag with a Phillip Goss album is its sheer eclecticism gives the impression of a compilation album rather than a focused artist's statement but there's so much talent in earshot I'd recommend adventurous readers sending the lad a cheque.
