Nearly a decade removed from being tagged as the face of the electroclash movement, NY duo Fischerspooner has withstood the backlash and actually aged quite nicely. Entertainment is their third album, and although the over-the-top grandeur of “Emerge” may be a thing of a past, the guys still know how to craft glamorous synth-pop. “The Best Revenge” and “In a Modern World” pleasantly channel the subdued sounds of Bronski Beat and Spandau Ballet, while “Supply & Demand” adds in some Prince-style funkiness to its dancefloor vibe. Cleanly produced and bathed in glistening ’80s opulence, Entertainment just might be Fischerspooner’s best album yet—apparently the boys have learned that you don’t need to get in people’s faces to be fabulous.
