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.
