Despite the 22-year hiatus, Crime & The City Solution sound as if they’ve never been away, and with such a strong comeback there’s no reason why they can’t finally make an attempt of gaining the recognition they deserve. On the surface this album seems like it's a Nineties throwback guitar deal. Further exploration and perseverance reveals a collection of tunes rich with details, awash with well honed musical ideas, thoughtfully arranged vocals and expression filled lyrics.
The third, Berlin-based incarnation of Crime And The City Solution disintegrated in 1991, a year after fourth album Paradise Discotheque. Bonney moved to Los Angeles, released two solo albums that indicated a growing interest in blues and country, and the. othing. Nothing until 2011, when a new line-up of Crime & The City Solution sprung from the ashes. What is initially startling about American Twilight is how easily they whip up some of the old fire and brimstone. There is hurricane-force rock’n’roll ( Goddess ), apocalyptic Mariachi ( My Love Takes Me There ), Dionysian funk-rock ( Riven Man ). The gothic gospel of Domina is a reminder of Bonney’s exceptional, abject lyricism. Billowing sail. ncision of your nail. heals on the skin. he spouts, a preacher atop a decaying pulpit.
