The Raveonettes – Lust Lust Lust (2007)

Raveonettes Lust coverIn the murky world of these Danish pop-noir fans, lust is something to be indulged, and if the result is a missing wallet and a hangover, there’s still a pop tune to be had from it. Giving in to their appetites has given drowsy singer Sharin Foo and guitarist Sune Wagner the inspiration lacked by 2005’s Pretty in Black album; reverb-soaked guitars are more sweetly ominous, Foo’s come-hither vocals more disturbing, lullaby melodies more unwholesome. Though things pall a bit towards the end, there’s enough bad-dream melodrama to keep it going until then. The line “I fell in love in heaven to be with you in hell” typifies the album’s doomed-lovers theme in the droning, hypnotic song Lust, and the eastern-influenced Aly, Walk with Me is as queasy as it’s pretty. Stagey but effective, Lust, Lust, Lust does the Raveonettes proud…guardian
