China Crisis - Difficult Shapes & Passive Rhythms - Some People Think It's Fun To Entertain mp3 album

Difficult Shapes is a great debut album from the sadly-defunct China Crisis. The main Steely Dan connection here (to me) is the vocals. Beyond that, CC are definitely their own band. There is less polish and more uptempo tracks than on a typical SD album. The lyrical content does not approach the cryptic nature of SD. Anyway, I guess I'd regard this as something of a synthpop album, but it also contains nice jazzy undertones. It is highly melodic and pleasantly uplifting. Imagine Depeche Mode but with more propulsive rhythms, and brighter, with no drugs or clinical depression

China Crisis contributed a cover of Carole King's "It's Too Late", with both a regular version and an extended remix. In March 2017, China Crisis performed as part of the 80's Invasion Tour that included Toyah, Paul Young and Martika. In July 2017, the band returned to the Philippines for a show at the Kia Theatre, alongside Peter Coyle of The Lotus Eaters.
