Considered by many to be Be-Bop Deluxe's finest album, SUNBURST FINISH (1976) finds the British art-rock band filling out its sound with the addition of keyboardist Andrew Clark. While Clark brings new sonic textures to the table, the focus ... Full Descriptionof the ensemble's music remains, as always, on frontman/songwriter Bill Nelson and his amazingly adept guitar playing. "Ships in the Night," which recalls a slightly more accessible version of contemporaneous Brian Eno, proved to be the closest the group would come to a hit, while "Blazing Apostles" finds Nelson settling into guitar-hero mode with his deft metallic riffing. SUNBURST FINISH is also a fitting description of the bright sheen that producer John Leckie (XTC, Simple Minds) adds to these songs, giving the disc a bolder aesthetic than the band's previous outings. Along with MODERN MUSIC, which was released later the same year, this album marks the peak of Be-Bop Deluxe's relatively brief recorded legacy.
