Gold Afternoon Fix review from Boston Globe Print E-mail
Thursday, 22 February 1990
From Globe Calendar Feb 22nd 1990, by Jim Sullivan

The Church
Gold Afternoon Fix
Arista

Success sure can bring on a bout of despair. At least, musically. Listen to the last Cure album, or this new one, "Gold Afternoon Fix" by Australia's The Church. Then again, both groups have often paddled in that pool. The Church's breakthrough, "Starfish," was, like the Cure's breakthrough, a more upbeat affair, melodically anyway. This one is more muted and minor key, introspective as always. Side two's titles alone include "Transient," "Disappointment", "Fade Away" [sic: should be Fading Away], and "Grind". You think "Laughing" is the up song? No folks, "they" in the song are "laughing at you." Side one is slightly more shimmering, as the overall feel is one of haunting beauty. Dissillusionment hovers in the gentle washes of sound. An acoustic guitar underpins much of it; electric guitar arpeggios as in the gorgeous "Metropolis" lend the hook; vocalist Steve Kilbey weaves the sad songs. This is a gentle, agitated, ingratiating record. It's moody charm grows with repetition.

Jim Sullivan.
