Modesty - 1989 Pieces Of Modesty

SERIAL: CBS 463281 2
YEAR: 1989


LINEUP: Peter Ericson - vocals, all keyboards * Pelle Nylen - all guitars, backing vocals * Kim Sundstrom - drums, percussion, drum programming, technology

TRACK LISTING: 01 Pieces Of Modesty (Intro) * 02 I Call For You * 03 Don't Forget Me * 04 Standing Alone * 05 Big Beat * 06 Call Me Up * 07 Say A Prayer * 08 Too Late * 09 Time For You And I * 10 One More Broken Heart * 11 Don't Leave Until.. * 12 Miranda (Bonus)

Honestly, it's like a production factory out of Sweden. Bands/acts that do the west coast thing and make it sound so convincing. Perhaps they should just completely export Los Angeles to Stockholm altogether. Added to the 80's production line are the Swedish trio Modesty, who poked their noses out during 1989. With a full sound that brings together the best of Go West, Time Gallery and Fingerprintz, this is unashamedly hi-tech AOR but with brilliant songs to go with it.

The Songs
The trio of Ericson, Nylen and Sundstrom produced the album themselves, and it's obvious the trio have put a lot of loving energy into this gorgeous set of tunes. The bands first single 'Standing Alone' is a smooth radio friendly ballad, which reminds me a lot of Norwegian outfit Private Eye. 'Call Me Up' is a late nite smoothie, the band should've written it for Alfie Zappacosta instead! The opening pairing of 'I Call For You' and 'Don't Forget Me' are some of the best hi-tech material I've heard lately, and that's saying something. When the band really turn up the screws, tracks such as 'Say Prayer' and 'Too Late' stretch the hi-tech funkiness to the boundary that only a band like Level 42 can occupy. 'Don't Leave Until..' is another late nite latte special, while the closer 'Miranda' (the B-side to the single 'Standing Alone' is another worth a mention, with its lush melodies and overall center of attention to all things hi-tech.

In Summary
Very rare album these days, but might be relatively easy to track down in Sweden, or on Ebay. Hi-tech lovers a la Kevin McCourt, Time Gallery etc will find much to like with Modesty. Despite being Swedish, this is a west-coast delicacy!
