CULTURE CLUB – LIFE
It’s hard to believe for a band that’s now spanned almost 40 years that they’re only just up to album #6. Boy George and co have certainly been tardy – album #5, Don’t Mind If I Do, was almost 20 years ago! Not straying too far from the reggaelite formula that brought them global fame in the ’80s, Let Somebody Love You is inoffensively sweet. It’s never going to be considered a career high point, but the fact they’re still recording and touring together as a foursome is a testament to their longevity and universal appeal. Life is unlikely to stretch too far beyond the George fan(atic)s, but for bringing sunny vibes to our troubled world, Culture Club deserve credit and thanks.
