Love And Rockets - Hot Trip to Heaven 2LP
Love and Rockets fifth album Hot Trip To Heaven is strikingly different from anything previous. The album has a diverse range of influences, from twisted lounge jazz to ambient trance. With additional vocals by the celebrated Egyptian-Belgian singer Natacha Atlas, the album’s world music influences are evident. A critical piece of their catalog, many have noted that the album is brave and radical. New York Magazine said it was “hypnotic, glistening, dark and crashing.” The album was ahead of it’s time, pre-dating the electronic music revolution by a few years.
