Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Savage Garden: Daniel Jones (vocals, guitar, keyboards, programming); Darren Hayes (vocals).
  • Additional personnel: Rex Goh (guitar); Alex Hewitson (bass); Terapai Richmond (drums, percussion).
  • Australian edition features one bonus track.
  • Big, expansive Euro-pop, Australian style. Stylistically, this duo is coming straight out of the '80s with a vengeance. Savage Garden look to Duran Duran and Big Country for influences. Guitars are used for texture, not as instruments of angst or anger. But the Prince-style strings and piano at the end of "To the Moon and Back" show a willingness to experiment within the somewhat narrow confines of their chosen sound.
  • The feel is electronic, but not inhuman. "I Want You" sounds a lot like Roxette (remember Roxette?!!), with its rapid-fire, hip-hoppy vocal affectations, but then "Truly Madly Deeply" comes along, a ballad replete with open-chord guitar sweeps and gospel-inflected keyboards. There's even a nice classical guitar solo at at the end to round things out. If you like modern dance music, but with a semblance of melody and some pleasant instrumental concepts, you just might want to enter this conventionally pretty, not-so-savage garden.
