Song of the Day 4/10/08: UFO! - Forbidden Love
Perhaps this is not what I expected from an artist with an exclamation point in his name. Without any prior exposure to UFO!, I guess I anticipated glitchy, glorious, thunderous rhythms (an exclamation point is a hell of a lot to live up to, right?) So I was pleased to discover soft keys and far-off bells, which soothed me into that eyes-half-shut, dreamwashed state. I'm about to fall asleep, when, oh...oh, wait, it picks up. Once you hit 2:27 - a burst of driven synths - you understand full well where the exclamation point comes from.
