Review

Review Text Seduction: The Society Collection (not to be confused with its 1982 Seduction release) concentrates on its early-'80s recordings for the Society label. These, keyboardist Lyndon Scarfe intimates his liner notes, were their best and most indie-oriented. It's not as rich in texture and other qualities as the most renowned goth of the era, and not as tuneless as the worst of it; it's somewhere in between. The group could have used more melody and diversity to more effectively convey its messages of angst and scarred modern landscapes -- an observation, true, that could apply to many acts working this territory. Some imaginative synthesizer lines and a few just-about-danceable beats are of some worth. But it's too droning and unvariegated to make a significant mark, and hard to distinguish from much other post-punk murk since the early '80s that has leaned on similar attributes. ~ Richie Unterberger
