Neon Neon - Stainless Style

Neon Neon is a collaboration between Super Furry Animals front man Gruff Rhys and Bryan Hollon, aka Boom Bip. The first album created by this illustrious duo, Stainless Style, marks the halfway point on our journey through this year's Nationwide Mercury Music Prize nominees. Loosely speaking, it is a concept album, based on the life of the infamous John DeLorean. Gruff Rhys and Boom Bip hit the new wave sound on the nose. My question is, should they have? I don't have an answer for that. My other question is, is it really prize-worthy? I don't have an answer for that either. Maybe you will after you check out "I Lust You," below...
