Band reformations are a depressing lottery. They're rarely done for the purest of reasons: the money from a reunion tour has got to be pretty tempting for people whose creative profitability is years over.

Indeed, LCD's Nancy Whang is on board as Mr MacLean's sidekick, and the duo's vocal interplay on tracks such as "The Station" inevitably recalls the Human League. Lyrically, Juan is almost the equal of a Murphy or an Oakey.
